It was raining hard that day. By the time I got home from work and picked up the newspaper from the driveway, I couldn’t imagine there would be anything left of it. Then I noticed it was inside of a Ziploc bag.
This has been a progression for the last few weeks. It has been raining quite a bit. First I noticed that there were two orange bags surrounding the newspaper on rainy days. Then I noticed that there was a bag with a rubber band around it and a second bag with a rubber band around it when it was raining outside. Finally this week there was a bag with a rubber band, another bag with a rubber band, and it was inside of a Ziploc bag sealed at the top. That newspaper was dry despite being outside in the rain for probably 10 hours.
I guess I was just surprised that the person who delivers our newspaper had gone to such lengths to keep it dry for us.
Talk about work ethic!
I don’t take enough time to thank the people in my life. I am surrounded by friends and family and coworkers (and apparently newspaper carriers) who go above and beyond every day.
I am grateful for each and every one of you. Thank you for inspiring me to always try to do my best.
