how hard is it to be nice?
wonder why people in a family can't be nice to each other. how hard is it to resist putting your foot on your sister's neck? i'm just wondering because i actually said that sentence today. "Do not put your foot on your sister's neck." Ridiculous.
But it makes me think, why are they nice to their friends but rude to their siblings? Which led me to... why am I patient with my friends, and impatient with my children. Why do I give my friends the benefit of the doubt, but assume the worst first with my children.
I need to get it together... so I can model kindness. That's part of why he put his foot on his sister's neck.
