Thursday Thoughts, September 12th

Happy Thursday a/k/a Friday eve!  How's your week going so far?  I want to take a moment and talk about something posted on Facebook where people have made rude comments.  Here's the thing, purely my opinion, but I think that many people are getting more rude and not thinking about how it may cause others to feel because they are hiding behind their screens.  Here's my two cents or what it's worth, just be kind.  You don't know what others may be going through.  One smile from you may change the way their day is going.  One "good morning, how are you?" even if you don't really want to know.  Even if you do not agree with someone, there is no point in being rude to them.  We are all human and we all need a little grace sometimes.  We are not perfect and we each fall short from time to time.  I guess my Mom telling me for so long to "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" just stuck and I try hard to be courteous to wait staff/fast food window or order people, to the homeless when I encounter them.  But for the grace of God and my family years ago, that could be me.  I may not be able to give them anything, but I can be kind or I can even say a silent prayer for them in my car.  

Here's my point, in case you missed it, BE KIND!  It doesn't cost you anything to smile at someone.  Smiling crosses language barriers.  

I know this was short and probably most of the people reading my blog don't need this reminder, but share with your kids, perhaps a co-worker needs a little grace.  It only takes a moment.  Have a great day!

  1. People in general seem more rude all around, online and in person. More and more, I just like to stay at home and only talk to my husband and the kids (and my cat!)
