|Sandi seeks connection with mama and her ducklings,|
Usa-River, Tanzania, 2004.
I took a different tact and waited my turn. I know how Zulli and Shamim love to connect with their customers. There's a drive there that goes beyond superb customer service, which they always deliver; they minister to folk. Thankfully, their approach has nothing to do with religion and everything to do with extending compassion, courtesy, and grace.
After a brief interaction over the items, Zulli stopped mid-stride and looked me in the eye: "You're keeping well, then?"
"Yes, Zulli, thank you; very well."
I ask you, is there anything more comforting than having someone check in with you and really mean it? Which is why I waited my turn, so grace could flow between us.
