Leadership Thought #333 – Appreciating the Kindness of Strangers

Yesterday as I was winding down the holiday weekend with my kids our dog (Bambi) got loose from the back yard and ran off. You can’t really blame the dog. It was our fault for leaving the gate open and not paying attention. We were all devastated. She is still fairly young and not all that street smart. We live in a busy downtown area and it isn’t difficult for your thoughts to conjure up many possible terrible outcomes. To make matters worse she wasn’t wearing her collar. It would have been a very sad way to end an otherwise happy weekend if we had been unable to find her.
