Working with Heart

During the lockdown, there are many stores that have remained open because they are considered essential. Grocery stores are the means by which we have been able to continue to eat and ease out of hoarding. The workers at these stores have been considered heroes and I highly agree. Amongst these workers are different ways of being. Some avoid even looking at the shoppers as they pass by. Some are excessively busy shopping for curbside and will give you a subtle smile but turn their eye quickly back to their task. Over at the checkout, however, I have encountered a Golden Rule employee who, though limited in expression by his face mask, manages to help each person feel like they matter. Even with social distancing, shoppers have needs. He actively addressed each one with a giant smile shinning through his eyes. The employees around him called him their favorite. The areas he was in at any given time were accompanied by laughter and joy. It’s not what you do but how you do it that matters. I would say he is a hearty example of kindness during this time of pandemic. 5/6/20 KINDNESS

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.
