You don't need to know them to show them some love……
Seen a group of 15 youngin from my Hidden Gems Thrift Store in the parking lot acting like some young teens do.
I 1st approached them about the noise level and the rock throwing in the parking lot.
They listened but I could see they didn't fully grasp what I had to say.
20mins later my landlord is now talking to them.
He trying to explain the errors of their current behavior.
I soon joined him in the discussion as we both pointed out the greatness each individual possessed.
Still hammering the message this is a business incubator not a playground.
I then told everyone give me 20mins I will get you all McDonald's!
Now we really talking they're language.
One teen asked...."you mean we can order anything we want?"
I replied "why not."
With a puzzled stare he said thank you.
I replied "You're welcome I got your back!"
If we are to be this village that we seek.
These challenging moments don't become a challenge they become a part of the build.
The Thank you is enough for my generosity .
Countine to show these youngin you care.
I don't have to know you to show you.
I love you.
