I ask why an employee, any employee, would go to an extraordinary length to serve a client. It might be out of pride for the job. It might be to be noticed. Or it might just be because they care.
On 11.01.2019, I searched everywhere to find a temporary step to stand on. It should be about 10cm high and large enough for me to stand on safely. I was unsuccessful and when I saw him in the cafe, I asked Mark from maintenance for some suggestions,. I explained that it was to do some of the physio exercises to try and get me to walk efficiently after five years of struggle.
Perfect for Purpose
On 14.01.2019, while I was at the gym, the result of that discussion was placed in front of my door. Five pieces of wood with a piece of five ply on top. Perfectly fits the purpose.
But can you imagine my surprise and delight, when I saw the top covered with a piece of carpet? Now, that was not necessary, neither was it requested. However, it shows a mind that was not just thinking of a ‘job’ but also of my comfort. I am so grateful.
It is easy to say, “Well there are good people in the world.” As a child of God, I can claim the same words as the psalmist wrote: “My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Ps.121:2 because God is interested in my well being all the time. This act of kindness came because God is interested in EVERYTHING that I need.
