the golden rule. :)

last night, I told my girls to wonder what peoples stories were.
to not just take people at face value and dismiss them.
they have a story.
what brings people to place they are at when you encounter them?
what baggage did they encounter along their journey?  what victories have they seen?

after this weeks uphill mini-battles...I smiled when I saw this.
I can't choose how people react to me.
but then again, they don't get to choose how I react to them. :)

i have lost count of how many times i remind my boys to, 'treat others the way you want to be treated.' usually followed by an illustration for them like, 'would you like it if someone took your toy and then kicked you?' ;D Serioulsy love the flipped coin at the end of your post - great perspective!
