One morning last month when we were in Provo, the kids and I were almost through breakfast when the hotel breakfast host walked over to our table. (Uh, oh I thought!)
"I just have to tell you..." (oh dear!)
"Your family is just one of the nicest, neatest families I've ever seen here!"
Her sweet comment was just so completely unexpected and kind that it has stuck with me and I just want to remember it. I kind of know it wasn't true (or bless these hotel employees!) but it was so kind and loving! She had a busy morning and plenty of work to be done, but she took a minute to come share that moment of kindness with a bit-overwhelmed mom, and it was such a wonderful way to start that day for me.
