GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Sponsored by hbkcpa.com/consultants/melissa-crowley/
Have you seen those new commercials for the mega-chain Marriott? They were shot in black and white and promote Courtyard, Fairfield, Four Points and Springhill Suites hotels. In my favorite one, the voice over begins with the words:
"It would be great if human beings were great at being human and if all of mankind were made up of kind women and kind men..."
The spot goes on to depict random acts of compassion being committed on various people in a myriad of situations: A group of people are helping a stranger push a stalled out car; someone else is assisting a woman as she transports her baby (in a stroller) down a flight of stairs; a little girl stands up to a bully picking on a classmate.
It's awesome. #goldenrule
And I have just two questions for Marriott:
1. What does this have to do with the price of a hotel room in China?
2. WHERE THE HECK ARE THESE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE?
Hmpf. Sorry; crummy morning. I digress. I DO get it, Marriott. Your operational philosophy is based on the Golden Rule of doing unto others as you'd have them do to you. #genuismarketing Kudos on a great work ethic and thanks for the reminder.
And, even though some peeps circling my orbit are displaying the Copper Rule (as in, I wouldn't give ya a penny for the way they treat others), I'm gonna give 'em the gold, anyway; 'cause I know it's the right thing to do.
Besides, throat punching people is illegal, capisce?

Ps 144:1b, 2, 9-10 R. (1) Blessed be the Lord, my Rock! Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for battle, my fingers for war. My refuge and my fortress, my stronghold, my deliverer, My shield, in whom I trust, who subdues my people under me. O God, I will sing a new song to you; with a ten-stringed lyre I will chant your praise, You who give victory to kings, and deliver David, your servant from the evil sword. Alleluia See Mt 4:23 Jesus preached the Gospel of the Kingdom and cured every disease among the people.
