It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor. Would you be mine? Would you be mine?
There’s a new movie in theaters as we speak that celebrates the life and legacy of Mr. Rogers. It’s starring Tom Hanks and my understanding is that he does an outstanding job representing this kind and gentle man who built his life into our children through the wonderful avenue of television. While I’ll even bet that the jingle is still playing in your mind and you hear the train whistle and bell clanging as it rounds the corner.
While we think of the music, the sweater, the tennis shoes and the train coming around the bend, we can also think of our company, SERVPRO of Union, Towns, Fannin and Gilmer counties. After all, I believe that’s why we are in business. Day after day, we receive multiple calls asking us to rescue those who are in need. Sometimes it’s dealing with water, flooding, frozen pipes, and mold and then sometimes, it’s dealing with the heartbreaking losses of fire and smoke damage. I’ve experienced this trauma myself and can speak firsthand of the devastation that goes with it and I would never wish that on anyone. Many people look at it as a job where I see it as a ministry. Along the way of reassuring our customers that they are in excellent hands we can even make it as though “it never even happened”. And we can encourage them emotionally and spiritually as well. Isn’t this a great job?!
So I’m starting my day with a little jingle, “please won’t you be my neighbor?”
