Today's Lesson From London: Appreciate The Kindnesses That Are Extended To You
I just arrived in London and had a wonderful driver pick me up at the airport and bring me to the hotel where I am staying in Ripley, Surrey. I hadn't changed money in Denver or Chicago...or at Heathrow and the driver was kind enough to take me to a bank so that I could change money before bringing me to the hotel. On the way he gave me a small tour of the area. I am so appreciative of these kindnesses. I am always a bit tentative whenever I arrive in another country (although I have been to London a number of times so I feel quite comfortable here). It is such a relief and an unexpected pleasure to encounter kindness and humor and assistance. I wonder if he knows how much his gestures of kindness meant to me? I hope so!
