Have you ever thought about what goes on every day in life behind the scenes? It seems that certain people get the attention – the leaders, the extroverts, the people that are in positions that put them in front of the public or in front of large groups of people. But, maybe some of the people we should thank and look up to for their faithfulness and leadership are the ones who have the thankless jobs: The snow removal people, the janitors, the cafeteria workers, the teacher’s assistants, the cashiers, the ushers at sporting events, the servers at restaurants, the dish washers, the volunteers at hospitals, or even the pooper scoopers on Mackinac Island!
All of those people have roles that, without them, we would be hampered. I respect leaders and I want myself to be a good leader, but I know that without these individuals doing the labor that often goes unnoticed, we as a society would fail to function.
Without them I can’t be the leader I want to be and I want to show more appreciation for these hard-working people.
How about you?
