Had something happen today that doesn’t happen very often. I got a real, live thank you card. Seriously! When was the last time you got a hand-written – not just an email! – thank you card? Just to prove that it actually happened, I took a picture of it. Here you go:
As you can see, it was from a kid who is only nine years old! I just met him a couple weeks ago. I spoke at his church and was talking with him after the service. Came to find out it was his 9th birthday. Gave him a Gospel of John CD, he thanked me, we cracked a few jokes about how much cooler he was than his older brother (who was standing right there of course), and off he went.
Honestly, I haven’t given it much thought. Until today. I love kids. And I love thankful people. So…when I get to meet a thankful kid I guess that just makes for a great day.
Oh…and my favorite part was seeing the phrase “warm regards and best wishes” in a card from a nine-year-old. Outstanding!
