Nicely

Every once in a while I need to stop and appreciate simple things. Most of the time I take things for granted and occasionally I am gently reminded that God is in the ordinary as much as he is in the extraordinary. Not everyone is nice in the world, but most people are kind. Even if it is just out of a simple respect, it's nice to be treated nicely. I usually don't think of it in the moment, but looking back on today, I'm glad I was treated nicely. And I was... all day long. I would certainly take notice if it were I were treated poorly. Actually, I'd probably pout about it. So it would wise for me to appreciate the kindness I was shown as well. Perhaps then I will recognize it sooner when it happens again.
