Favorite Things: connoisseur ice-cream

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, eight opportunities of trust, seven transformed lives, six dazzling light displays, five thrills of hope, four life traditions, three doses of patience, two random acts of kindness and a place to express my creativity.

After a healthy dinner of Salmon and Salad, we tucked into some Belgium Chocolate ice-cream and watched The worlds strictest parents.Q

It was really interesting…The main teaching lesson for two stray kids was trust. The Father spoke over and over to them about trust and it really made an impact.

Trust is an underrated commodity in our society today. Children are not raised to see trust as a high achievement success ratio. I am intrigued though, when I think about what our world could look like, if trust was rated as highly as beauty, TER scores and friends count on facebook.

Imagine if we truly were who we said we are! Imagine if there was no lying at the dinner table this Christmas, imagine if we under promised an over delivered on what we committed too?

Imagine a trustworthy government?

Imagine trustworthy churches?

Imagine trustworthy families?

The world would be a very different place….

I do believe though, that it does begin with you and me. I do believe we need to be the change we want to see in the world.

Here’s a toast to raising the trust factor this christmas!
