It was a beautiful day today, so my parents and I had lunch out on the patio. After a while, a young man came around checking the sprinklers in the grassy area. He and my dad got to talking about the tree that nearly came down in the blizzard a few weeks ago. My dad shared that he worked as a weather forecaster when he was in the military. The young man thanked my dad for his service and said that we (the collective citizens) are moving forward only due to the work that was done years ago. My dad in turn thanked him for his service working on our yard. I enjoyed listening to their conversation and mutual respect for one another.
I Found God today in one man’s appreciation of the other.
