Back in my high school years I was in the band. Every year the band leaders (students – not the faculty) would hand out awards to sum up the year. My senior year was very memorable to me, I was presented “The Kinder, Gentler Babe” award. It made my day, not just for the use of the word “babe” – but mostly for the first part, I was so glad I was leaving my high school friends with that impression.
I guess I have always tried to be a nice person and plan on doing so for the rest of my life. It keeps me happy.
So, the other day I came across a certain blog (to remain nameless) that seems to have a great number of readers. My heart sank a little because the nature of the blog was fairly unkind. It made me sad to see that people were so eager to jump on a bandwagon that took to putting others down for the way they dress or the fact that they don’t get manicures. Ugh! It’s just wrong on so many levels.
I was considering redoing one of my favorite bumper stickers of all time.
But it seemed to be a little negative.
So, I am going to go with the guys from my band class and do this:
Thank you to all you nice people out there, your kind and happy posts and comments are very much appreciated by sweet little ole me!
