Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Perfecting The Journey 🚙 ...

During times of stress and uncertainty, the beauty of laughter and normalcy are gifts of immeasurable value. They refuel our spirits with glimpses of what is truly important and remind us that all will be well.

The hotel we have been staying at during our emergency layover in Kansas has been our port in the storm, providing refuge as we gather resources - mainly a newly purchased pre- owned vehicle, for the next leg of our journey home.

The housekeeping crew of about four Hispanic ladies have been especially inspirational.

Just by being happy at their work and enjoying each other’s company and camaraderie, they have given me hope and a smile when I didn’t think I had any left in me.

In appreciation, I wrote them a special note, along with a few Peace Doves and cash to share a treat together, and left them on the desk in our room.

Finding our way through the storm with an appreciative outlook keeps us focused on those blessings that we might have overlooked before.
Another lesson learned as we perfect the journey…
