I am usually guilty of keeping a blank mind and literally letting what comes through one ear to go through the other, while listening to church sermons on Sundays.
Something caught my attention yesterday when the young priest narrated the story of a teacher asking an unruly class to do something.
She asked the each one in the class to write about each of the other students in the class. She spend time to compile the comments for each student and handed them the sheet with the comments for each student.
She could see many moist eyes and silence and smiles when the students read what others thought about them.
Many years later there was an alumni gathering and there were wrinkled, folded and opened many times, sheets of paper. It was a solemn occasion when eyes were moist and the teacher getting hugs from them whispering that it was the best thing ever happened to them.
I am just thinking, what if each one of us blog friends write one or two things about each other! And it get compiled for each of us.
I think it will be the best challenge, best award and it will be just priceless.
