When I agreed to visit a primary school in Kirksville, I decided to drive up on Sunday — it’s more than a four hour drive — to be there at 8:00 Monday morning. I wasn’t excited about making the trip, but that’s the way it goes sometimes.
Sandy surprised me by saying she was going with me. She knew there would be little for her to do Monday while I was working, but she went anyway, and the drive was far more enjoyable than I had anticipated.
Yesterday, while I spent the day at Kirksville Primary School giving eight 30-minute talks, Sandy whiled away the hours waiting for me, much of it in the hotel lobby where we’d spent the night. She picked me up after school and we drove back home, arriving at 7:00.
Mates do acts of kindness for mates. I offer this as a great example. Thank you, Sweetheart. I love you.
