It exceeded my expectations…

The Daily Dash: August 22, 2017 {The Kindness of Strangers}

* Total solar eclipse wows the country
* Trump rolls out new plans for Afghanistan
* 10 sailors still missing in Singapore

If anything begins to disintegrate your life with Jesus, turn to Him at once, asking Him to re-establish your rest~ Oswald Chambers

So…as much grief as I gave everyone about the eclipse and how I didn’t think it was going to be what everyone was making it out to be – I take it all back. Thankfully, not only were we in the path of totality, but we were able to see the eclipse perfectly from the base of our driveway. I’m so glad our kids were off of school so we could experience those moments together – they are ones we will never forget.

Today I had a meeting with a fellow school mom at Starbucks and before I left, the woman next to me had her drink spill all over her computer and phone. I raced to grab napkins while someone else grabbed a towel from behind the counter, to which she responded, “People in Nashville are really as nice as I’ve heard!”

Turns out, she just moved here a month ago and we ended up in a 30 minute conversation. I’m a firm believer in not keeping my head down so deep in my own schedule that I miss opportunities God may be placing in front of me. I’m not saying I saved a small child from a burning building today, but hopefully I made a difference in someone else’s life and just may have made a new friend in the process.
