I was pretty excited because they didn't know that my uncle Knolan Benfield was coming to town the same day for a visit. We met them at the church and frankly Nicholas and I barely got a word in, Knolan and Ken were just enjoying catching up and swapping stories about what it was like working together for the Southern Baptist Home Mission Board during the 1960s and 70s.

It reminded me how important it is to tell people the positive things they do for you.
The other day I wrote to my friend John Spink, a photographer for the Atlanta Journal and Constitution. I was just taken back at how consistent his work was in the paper and with all the cutbacks it is hard to work for a newspaper these days. I just wrote and told him I was really impressed with his work.
John's response was unbelievable. He said the comments made a big difference for him that day.

I had to share these photos of Ken and Knolan, because you can see in their faces that they really were enjoying each other. We all need that in our lives.
