What do people say about you…?

I could not help but overhear two men talking on the plane as we were landing at London Heathrow late Saturday afternoon.

They were talking about a co-worker that they worked with in the medical field, speaking very highly of her personality and work ethic.  On the other hand, they spoke of a man, whether husband of this lady, or another co-worker, the story does not tell.  Although they did not speak derogatory of him, their words were not as positive.

It got me thinking.  Do you ever wonder what people say about you when you are many miles away from the conversation?  I suspect that somewhere in the world, someone is bringing up your or my name in the course of conversation.  What might they be saying?

Whether we like it or not, people are watching us and talking about us when we are not around.  It is not that we are looking for the approval of men, but it is a reminder that we should live in a way that when our name does come up in conversation, it will come up for positive reasons.  After listening in on the conversation between these two men, you knew that the one they were talking about was one you would be pleased to meet.  We should all desire to live in such a way!

Well, after a brief meeting with the cardboard Queen at Heathrow Airport, and wishing her a happy jubilee, it was off to Montreal.  We were greeted with a hug from our daughter at the airport and surprised by our son and daughter-in-law when we arrived home!  What a joy!  What a blessing! What a life! 

Until next Monday…
