The Power of Hello

 When we were remodeling our home, a sweet woman in our ward offered me some curtains.  Simeon and I went over to check them out.  Ever since then Simeon has approached her at church every week with a "Hello Connie".  This woman's life has been hard on many levels but this simple hello from a child has touched her immensely.  She moved recently and wanted to leave Simeon something for his kindness.  She didn't have to but I thought it would be good for him to have something to remind him of his Power of Hello.

I don't want to tell this story to brag because goodness me, this kid can be a major stinker in the way he treats people. I want to tell it because I think there is a lesson to be learned but even more so, when Simeon reads the book that I make of this blog, I want him to remember that being nice to people is easy.
