Thankful Thursdays...For the Good in People
Call me naive but I have always believed that there is some good in 99.9% of the people out there.
It may be that the “good” is taking a nap or hasn’t yet been given the opportunity to show itself, but it’s there.
For example, until recently Larry has been missing in action on our morning walks. He is working through planters fasciitis and has progressed to short walks.
There have been so many people who have stopped me to ask how my husband is. Some I know by name, and others I “know” via our exchanges of “Good morning” to each other.
There was a lady on the walking path...we’d never spoken, only smiled a “good morning” to each other...who stopped me just to ask how my husband was.
We’ve all been through a rough year and then some. Forces keep trying to make us take sides...to see those who do not think as we do as being wrong or evil. Names have been called.
I am so grateful for the opportunities given to me daily to see the real good that exists in people.
Try to see the good in others. When you're tempted to judge someone, make an effort to see their goodness. Your willingness to look for the best in people will subconsciously bring it forth. Marianne Williamson
