random acts of kindness
jack goes to camp at a beautiful church retreat on the atlantic ocean. between the summer day camps, and the church youth group camps, they have as many as 1600 youth on campus each week. the grounds themselves used to be Fort Caswell, and are studded with old encampments, armories, fortifications, etc.
there is a security gate that is manned 24 hours. the guards are all so friendly, always smiling, always giving directions, talking about the history of the fort with people who just happen to stumble across it. they have a small guard "shack", and it has got to be hot in there!
on friday, we dropped of milk and fresh baked cookies to the guard on duty. he was totally surprised ( a little taken off-"guard" even!!) just a small thank you! (we know he enjoyed it as we saw him brushing cookie crumbs off of his lips!)
