Last year I was home from work for a day and not feeling well at all. My three year old daughter wanted to know if I would read to her. After about 8 books I really just needed some time to rest. So I hopped onto my video subscription website and went looking something for both of us to enjoy. When I saw ‘Mister Rogers Neighborhood,’ in the list the choice was easy. I laid there on the couch with my daughter and tuned into the very first episode Fred Rogers aired. It was like a time machine taking me back to my own childhood. My three year old LOVED it, and asked to watch a second one, which we did.
A few months later I found myself reading an article on Fred Rogers in the news. I found a book of some of his quotes. I was again feeling inspired to be a better person because of this simple man and his quiet ministry.
These last few months have seemed turbulent. We can make the world a better place. We determine everyday through our actions what kind of a person we will become. As I mentioned in an earlier post the most important step we can take is our next step. Well neighbor, I hope we all choose to make our next step one of kindness.
