What’s your name?

It was time for my routine oil change at Firestone. About this time last week, I had to have a major repair done on my vehicle. So when I entered I was met with, “Weren’t you just in here?” Pause. You know the moment when someone knows you and inwardly you are frantically trying to remember how? Well, this was one of those moments. I asked if he was the one who had worked on my vehicle, to which he responded no. So I decided to instigate an exchange of names to work through this semi-awkward moment. “My name is…”, moments later, “Your name is John, right?” “No, it’s Raul” “Oh right! And his name is Alex”. “No, it’s John.” At this point the tendency may be to give up, but I persisted, knowing that I’d be seeing these guys again and names are important. So as I left I tried one more time. “Thank you Raul! Bye John!” to which they replied, “Bye Kendra!” Sometimes you have to work through the awkwardness in order to establish respectful acquaintances. 3/26/20 RESPECT

Finding the Golden Rule in action everywhere I go! It’s like time stops and I get to watch amazing scenes play out in front of me. Scenes that embody Kindness, Empathy, Respect, and Civility. Arizona is a Golden Rule State and I’m what you might call a Golden Rule prospector.
