    Just heard a great phrase I can use

    when I'd normally say "Are you nuts? What you ask me to do is against the laws of physics". It goes like this: "It's so flattering that you think I can do it. But unfortunately I have my limitations". Now I have to remember to use it :-)

    I was shopping today

    when a 9-10 year old boy walks by me with an "excuse me, miss," which was in itself nice to hear. I heard him say something else quietly so I looked up. He says "you look really nice today", and my heart melted a little. It was really sweet to hear a kid pay a polite...

    If you gave me a dollar

    for every time I have been lied to, disrespected, talked about, ditched, and left by people, I would never have to worry about money again. But I still treat people how I would want to be treated. I think a little politeness can go a long way.

    “Make yourself at home,” is what we tell our house guests. And we mean it. I need my house guests to feel comfortable enough to help themselves from the refrigerator, so that I don’t have to wait on them hand and foot. And most importantly, I hope they will treat my home...

    I was heading over to the gas station,

    and this guy held the door wide open for me. I was quite a few feet behind him, but he still stood there and waited. I can't recall the last time someone has done something like that for me, but I found it to be very kind.

    Always
