Be Kind

Jan is making yummy bread.... She had stopped baking for many years because of her busy schedule. But after a trip to her favorite bakery she made the decision to start baking. They told her that she needed to put in an order for the bread she wanted, but in a not-so-nice way. She hasn’t been back since and has decided that baking is well worth the time and effort in so many ways, including not being verbally abused.

Often we go through everyday chores, lists and errands not really paying attention to how many people we come in contact with and how many words we say that might make or break that person’s day. In this New Year’s resolution atmosphere, we should each resolve to be more respectful and really take the time to measure the words we speak.
