A Quote from my Aunty M
we fall into annoyance. Sometimes we dive in. Maybe sometimes we can
choose differently. Give people "the benefit of the doubt." On a
beautiful walk in the park early this morning, I must have picked up 40
or so little cellophane juice box straw cover things. Never cared for
litterers. Today, I picked them up differently. Thought of the people
who might have picked up after me at times. Saw the Momma's who might
have been tending to one child while another pair of little fingers
opened their straw for the first time. Saw in my mind the sudden breeze
that made it dance away. Made me feel differently. Give each other the
benefit of the doubt. It works with big things, too; but maybe helps to
practice on the little ones."
