“Go Ahead….Make My Day”

This quote is familiar to many of us….from the 1983 movie Sudden Impact, starring Clint Eastwood as Harry Callahan.  ‘Dirty Harry,’ as he’s called, is issuing it as a challenge.

I received another challenge today from one of my favorite authors:  Andy Andrews.

In his blog post today, Andrews shares his thoughts on those special people who ‘make our day,’ just by doing the small things in a joyful way.  The person who shines your shoes, the clerk at the grocery counter, the receptionist at your client’s office….or us, as we answer the phone.  I remember a sign that was posted over a clerk’s head in a city office where I was meeting one day;  “Be Nice, Because Nice is Important.”

The Epistle of Ephesians speaks to this in Eph 6:7 (The Message): “And work with a smile on your face, always keeping in mind that no matter who happens to be giving the orders, you’re really serving God.”

Here’s Andy’s story: http://bit.ly/1dXRnds

Hope you accept the challenge and recognize a joyful person in a surprising way today!
