Today we had the census taker come to our door. I have never had that happen before. We didn't turn our form in though so that is what happens I guess. In any case, the first time she came I was busy, right in the middle of painting. I was a little short with her. Maybe rude in a small way. In any case, we agreed that she would come back in half an hour. She was graciously persistent! I vowed to be much better when she returned. I was grateful that she came back and I thanked her. We completed the questionnaire and she left.
How often do you get a do-over when dealing with people? Almost never right? A successful interaction only takes two people but you do have to try. I was glad that I made the effort and was even more glad that she was determined. The awareness of God's grace seems to happen after the fact. No matter though. I'll take it!
