Saw God in a Cardinal

A cardinal is a representative of a loved one who has passed. When you see one, it means they are visiting you. They usually show up when you most need them or miss them. They also make an appearance during times of celebration as well as despair to let you know they will always be with you. Look for them, they’ll appear.

Saw God in #42

Yesterday was Jackie Robinson Day in Major League Baseball. It is a great day celebrating a great man. All major league players will wear the #42 in his honor. The #42 has been retired for all the teams. Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier, but he was so much more… He endured everything with class, poise and professionalism… He was also a great athlete… Love this day!

Saw God in a Hug

Tom & Bob then and now _ inspiration _ hug _2

“I have learned that there is more power in a good strong hug than in a thousand meaningful words.” - Ann Hood

We met in a boardroom.

He came in with a big smile. After short introductions, we started talking about business.

Tom Manenti is the Chairmen and CEO of MiTek. It’s an arm of the Berkshire Hathaway family of businesses. His boss is someone named Warren Buffet. (Yeah, I’ve never heard of him either!)

The more we talked business, the more we realized it wasn’t just business that motivates us.

It’s a love of people. Focus on mission. Desire to inspire others to live up to the fullness of their potential.

We finished our meeting talking about family, faith and our inflection points, or the moments in time that change the course of our lives.

For Tom, it was losing his mother when he was just nine-years-old. He remembers most vividly the first day back to school after the funeral.

As a 4th grader at Middle Road Elementary in Hazlet, NJ, he was totally overwhelmed with grief. No one knew what to say, so no one said anything. Everyone in class pretended it was just another day.

The final bell rang. The kids grabbed their stuff. They raced out of the classroom toward their homes; toward their families.

This day Tom walked home with a classmate named Bob. The two friends walked together in silence. Tom was too sad. The woman who always greeted him at the front door, would not be at home today. Or ever again.

When they got to the corner where they parted ways, Tom kept his head down as he continued towards his home alone.

After a few steps, Tom looked up. To his surprise, Little Bob was standing in front of him. He looked Tom directly in the eyes, and gave him a big, sincere and much-needed hug.

No words were exchanged.

The hug ended. Bob turned and walked toward his house. Tom continued toward his.

That was more than five decades ago.

The boys grew up. They got through school, started jobs, grew businesses, moved states, raised families and enjoyed life.

Last summer they reconnected with old friends for a weekend of golf. At a quiet moment, Tom brought up that day back in 1960. They’d never discussed it. Tom asked if Bob still remembered it.

“Rock,” Bob replied using Tom’s old nickname, “I remembered it vividly. I’ll never forget it.”

My friends, frequently people ask me what to say to a friend who has been diagnosed with cancer, what to say to someone who has lost a spouse, what words to say to someone who is struggling.

Difficulty, challenge, strife and loss are absolutely part of life.

Hopefully this story reminds you that it’s seldom the wisdom of the words we speak and much more frequently the gift of the time we spend, the love we share and the hugs we give. [Tweet this.]

Keep your head up and seek opportunities to give away good, strong hugs.

Stay on fire and live inspired.

Saw God in The Parking Lot

Today I had to run up to Costco for a few things.  As I left the store, I was hit by huge, gusting winds.  There is actually a high wind advisory issued for the area.  Add cold and rainy to the forecast and it sums up the dreary day.  I rushed to my car fighting the elements and quickly unloaded my groceries.  As I was closing my trunk, I saw an employee corralling the shopping carts.  Not a fun job on a day like today.  A customer walked up to him to return his cart.  He handed him his cart and said, “Thank you for all you do!”  It stopped me in my tracks.  What a nice thing to say.  We often say a quick thank you but this man really took a minute to give a sincere thanks and to really let the man know he appreciated his work.  We always hear people complain when they are dissatisfied.  We often forget to commend people for the good job they are doing.  I am going to make an effort to compliment the good in people when I see it, just like this man did today in the parking lot.
