“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.”— Scott Adams
I’m remembering that this morning as I am watching the reports of the intense snowstorm descending on our area.
Working in the world of technology has changed how a storm affects me. My work does continue despite snow and ice. With my cellphone providing a hotspot, I can even work through power outages. The difference is that I can stay warm and comfortable while working and enjoy watching the snowfall.
I think it is important to remember all the people for whom blizzards mean extra work, including my sister, who is still out there farming. Stay warm Sis! Stay safe everyone!
During this winter storm, I will be doing my usual work. I will also be out there shoveling and helping my neighbors. I will be sure to call my sister. I hope I remember to be extra kind to all the workers who have to negotiate the weather to get to their jobs at hospitals and everywhere else they are required.
I’ll also make sure I get out there and commit some “random acts of snowmen”.
Whether you live in a snow belt or not, I’m guessing there are some days when nature adds extra challenges. What do you do on your ‘snow days’?
Yours in the calm pursuit of excellence,
