People Doing the Dumb Things I Did

A  L  O  H  A !

"Nothing is ever lost by courtesy. 
It is the cheapest of 
pleasures, costs nothing, 
and conveys much."

a day, 
even change a life. -

- Your willingness to 
put it into words is 
all that is necessary."

Here's to the people
doing the stupid things
that I used to do.

Wish I could reach you,
would be great if 
I could teach you,
to show you, 
to KNOW you.

But I watch it go by
though little escapes 
my eye;
I send you with indulgence
and a little bit of grace
making peace with myself
over my own rudeness 
when I was coming from 
that very same place.

So there's hope for everyone.

Our World Tuesday
Appreciate YOU looking in!

We all make mistakes. It's good to remember this and factor it in with others. Kindness is never wasted.

Lovely words Cloudia and a beautiful scene. None of us are perfect that's for sure but it costs nothing to be kind and the rewards for one's own well being as well as to others are never ending
