As a Mother of 4 I am constantly trying to teach my young children right from wrong. Just like Thumpers Mother in Bambi I too have said her exact words..."If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all."
I have a very close friend, who I love a ton. She is one of the most kind and generous women I have ever met. She is always looking for ways to serve others, and rarely receives any thanks.
I have been shocked the past couple of months as I have watched some of her closest friends and family mistreat her. I could never imagine treating another in this way. Didn't their mothers teach them what Thumper was taught?
I think we should all remember the words to the song we learned in Primary...I want to be kind to everyone for this right you see, so I say to myself remember this...Kindness begins with me.
