One of the biggest challenges in relationships these days is the fact the people don’t tend to be very good at taking personal responsibility.
We’re too quick to point the finger at other people, and look for where it ISN’t our fault…rather than how we can own our part in it.
So when I heard the story I’m sharing today, it warmed my heart.
Because this is the story of a 5 year old girl who made a mistake, and accidentally broke something at a department store in the Christmas rush.
Nobody at the store knew that it had even happened, so it would have been easy for her to have ‘gotten away with it’. But this little girl wanted to make the situation right.
So she wrote a note to the John Lewis store, apologising for the accident in which a Christmas bauble was broken, and including in it £2 to cover the cost of the breakage.
The store was so touched by the note, that they’ve spent all week trying to find the little girl to thank her and offer her a gift from the store to recognise her honesty.
They’ve since found the little girl in question, but because she is so shy she’s reluctant to come forward. But whether her identity becomes known or not, I’d like for you to join me today in acknowledging her for her honesty and desire to do the right thing.
As you know, I would love to acknowledge, honour and celebrate the women and men who have inspired you as well.
