What did your father tell you this morning????

My friend, Liz Heugly wrote on her blog:

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.

........people throughout your life will always hurt you, they will either do it unconsciously or some will choose to say and do things that will deliberately hurt you, either way it's their problem not yours. Live your life to the fullest and always be your authenic go make it a great day!!!!

I hear ya, Our family has been told by people that it is our fault for there actions the last couple of months and Paul & I feel that they will have to live with there choices not us and we are not held accountable. So we will just move on and live our lives the best we can and be happy w/our own family....
