Wake Up Wednesday

Last week's challenge was to report a job well done.  Yesterday I was at our church cleaning and clearing out a closet there.  I needed to get it done and I wasn't sure how I was going to entertain my boys there that long.  After we were there about twenty minutes a handful of 12 year old boys showed up to play basketball.  My boys had been running around in the gym and I wondered if the older boys would be annoyed that my little guys were in the way. 

It was quite the opposite.  They were so kind to my boys.  They let them play too.  When Baden fell and cried they scooped him up and tried to calm him down.  Then after I cleared out the closet they helped me take all of the unneeded stuff to the dumpster.  So, last night I called one of their parents to tell them how impressed and touched I was by them.  The dad I spoke to said I made his day.

This week's challenge is teach someone something.  Maybe a friend has asked you to show them how you make something.  Maybe your child needs help with a certain subject over the summer.  No matter how you take the challenge, teaching is fun and rewarding.  Sharing knowledge builds you and the learner.

So, did you report a job well done?  I'd love to hear about your experience.  Thank you for being here.
