We’re at Sky Harbor and sitting and waiting to load our plane to Newark NJ where we will switch rides and have a 9 hour flight to Tel Aviv. I was a bit anxious about the TSA stories I’d been hearing about full body scanners, full body pat downs that rank right up there with molestation…but we had none of that. Piece of cake getting through security! In fact one of the TSA agents caught everybody’s attention. He smiled and was giving everybody thumbs up when they went through the metal detector without setting it off…saying with a smile and raised eyebrows, “you made it!” He graciously helped those who forgot to remove a piece of metal from their pockets. He was shouting out reminders about what to do and not to do. He loves his job. But…maybe he doesn’t love his job, but chooses to enjoy what he has to anyway. With his positive attitude, I’ll bet his day goes by faster. He could have scowled, frowned, grumbled, demanded. Instead he chose to make us smile, relax and anticipate. He chose to serve instead of demand…give instead of take. That is the America I’m proud of. So…as you head off to work…what attitude will you choose. You HAVE to work today. Will you choose to lift and encourage or tear down and destroy? Go to work. They’re calling our row…gotta go!

    I plan to re-live this trip with you all. It was an amazing adventure when we went 4 years ago and we will never forget it. I wish you all well and hope you all have the spiritual uplifiting we had when we were there.

So, what do you think ?
