Framed Saying

There’s a framed saying that sits on a shelf in my office.  Several years ago my mom got me and my Ganny (maternal grandmother) copies of this picture.  It says:

Think deeply.

Speak gently.

Love more.

Laugh outloud.

Word hard.

Give freely and

Be Kind.

Those are each challenging in various ways but often the whole “Be Kind” can be difficult for us.  It’s so hard in our world to give freely and be kind without feeling like you’re being taken advantage of.  And maybe sometimes you do get taken advantage of or get burned.  It happens.  Both bad moods and good moods are contagious.  Be kind.  I think there’s a challenge there especially for some of us that are tired, impatient and prideful.  Be kind.   Hmmmm……
