Kindness and Caring

Kindness and Caring

Hey team! All right. So here we are; it’s another Wednesday, and I’m excited to be here with you guys. We’re literally just a few days away from Christmas. So, Jackie Chan…I don’t know how many of you guys know Jackie Chan or have seen any of his movies. He’s a funny actor and does a lot of his own stunts and stuff. A really neat guy.

“Sometimes it takes only one act of kindness and caring to change a person’s life.” Jackie Chan said that, and I happen to agree. It only takes one act of kindness or caring to make a change in a person’s life.

I’ve had many times in my life. I’ve had team members, some of you, have come to me and said that something that we’ve done or said that Karen and I or even another team member has immensely helped you. It’s very humbling when that happens, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the respect and the love.

It is about doing acts of kindness and caring for other people. Sometimes in their brokenness and their need, us stepping up and being that filler for them is an amazing thing. And this holiday season is kind of about that. Because when you think about the birth of Jesus. And what Jesus did and what God did in that capacity to come to Earth and in that way to live the life that he lived to give us what we have, a chance at salvation, is an amazing thing.

I just want to extend my heartfelt thanks to you and our care and our love and our respect for you. And if there’s anything that we can do as a family here at Northwest Enforcement in the way of caring and loving and helping you. We’re here for you. And we care very much about the successes for you and your family. We’re just grateful to have you a part of our team.

So, as we’re getting close. We’re only a few days away from Christmas. I just want to extend our love from our family to you at this time and just say thank you. And remember, when you’re out and about here this season, there are others that are hurting, that are in need. And when you extend that love, that care towards them, it might be just the thing, the catalyst to help change their life and see something turn around for them. They might be feeling that there is no more hope, and your love and your caring for them might just extend that hope to them in that moment.

So remember to be valuable and loving and caring is super valuable because nothing else will do. And I’ll see you guys next week. Christmas is just around the corner. For those of you watching this, you may not realize it or not, I am obviously batching this video because I’m here at the office, but I’m not here at the office. Karen and I and the boys went on an extended vacation; we’re somewhere else. Some of you know where that is, some of you don’t. I won’t say it because I don’t want to make any of you feel like you have not got everything you want, but I will be back just after Christmas.

I’m planning to take my boys up on the mountain, and we’re going to go snow skiing—actually sledding. I’m not going to go snow skiing. My boys don’t know how to ski, but maybe they might want to learn. Who knows? We might get some snowboards or something and maybe take them up and teach them how to snowboard or something. I guess I’m not going to be doing the teaching; I’ll have somebody else teach.

But we might go sledding and hang up on the mountain. It’s kind of a family tradition for us. Karen and I have been going up on the mountain almost on January 1 every year for the last, I don’t know, quite a few years. Not very many years that we haven’t been up there and done some little hike or whatever. We usually take a family photo and hang out. And now we have some family friends and stuff. We usually go sledding on January 1 every year.

Anyway, I hope you guys have a wonderful Christmas and a wonderful New Year, and I look forward to what the new year is going to bring. Remember to be valuable, to care for somebody else, love somebody else, be the hope that they might need for their lives to see change. And I will see you guys—well, maybe next year. God bless, bye, see you.
