As I hurried out the door towards my bus, I was hit with two thoughts.
One --If I could just sit down on this strip of grass and boohoo my eyes out, I would probably feel better and Two -- How often throughout the day do I treat people just like that?
I felt like God used that sharp response from my boss to remind me of some very important truths.
-- Treat others the way I want to be treated.
-- Always assume that everyone is doing the best they can.
-- Never use words or body language that is degrading or belittling.
These are reminders that I should tattoo to my arm, permanent marker on my dashboard and set as hourly pop-ups on my computer screen. Because it's truly easier said than done, no?! (ei. please refrain from asking Husband how I greeted him after work last night. Woe is me.)
So here's to another day of asking God to guard the works I speak and the actions I display to others. Because who knows. . . my marriage and friendships might just depend on it.
This awesome bauble-headed-photo is for this rad contest.
Go read about it and let me know if you want to be on my team, yo!
Happy Tuesday, lovelies
