Charlie Bear here.
I have two words for you to remember, and they start with the initials B K
Not the funny guy
with the “special orders don’t upset us” (is that their jingle?)…anyway, that’s not the B K I’m talkin’ about.
It’s this one:
That’s right. Be Kind. Mom Peep first heard this from her hairdresser. They were talking (as all clients and their hairdressers tend to do, right?), and going on and on, and the conversation came around to being kind to each other.
“You know,” the hairdresser said, “if we all thought of how much our words can hurt someone, or if we took a moment to think before we said something, maybe we’d discover that being kind could be just the thing needed at that moment.”
“I agree,” Mom Peep replied. “But I don’t always remember to do it.”
“Me, too,” the hairdresser said. “But I’m working on it.”
So there you have it.
Mom Peep has discovered that when she takes a moment to think before saying something to really close loved ones, and then she specifically says something KIND, it works wonders on how happy they both are. Or, if she can’t be nice, she says nothing at all.
Make sense? It does to me. (P.S. She does this with me almost automatically…so she often wonders why it is so hard with the humans she loves. Go figure. But she’s workin’ on it.)
Wiggles and woofs to you all,
