Kindness is the greatest attribute.
Guests at the Blue Collar have gifted me so often with acts of kindness. Last week I wrecked my Achilles tendon. I want to run 5 kilometers by my next birthday, and unwisely went at it too fast. Ouch! The B&B rooms are downstairs, and my injured foot doesn’t do steps easily.
My guests, Fred and Meredith, had visited before. They rearranged their travel schedule so they could stay at the Blue Collar when I had vacancies. We had plain old fun over breakfasts, dissecting the world and remaking it to our liking.
When they left, they stripped the bed for me, and then they re-made it, saving me trips up and down on my sore foot. How thoughtful was that? I was humbly grateful. Not that I expect guests ever to strip and make up the beds, but in this special instance it meant a great deal to me.
It reminded me of the mantra, Kindness Created Me Kind.
I intend to remember it oftener, and apply it at every opportunity.
Thank you, Meredith and Fred!
