Appreciating God’s sense of humor…

It was nearly midnight as I was getting ready for bed in Kansas City, when I realized that I had left my make-up kit hanging on my bathroom door back at home!  I needed to be at my client for a Productive Environment Party at 7:30 am!  Thankful for a 24-hour Walmart, and praying that I could “guess” which make-up colors would work for me — especially since we were videotaping, I made my choice and headed to the store restroom to make the best of a bad situation. One of the things I’ve learned about public speaking is that transparency endears audiences to a speaker, so my story about the “organizing consultant forgetting her make-up” seemed perfect.  After my presentation, employees when back to their offices and storage areas to “clear the clutter.”  Mid-morning, a woman approached me with a small kit of make-up brushes.  Smiling, she said, “I’m not sure what we were planning to do with these here! They must be for you!”  IMG_5636
