Sing in the shower. Treat everyone you meet like you want to be treated. Plant a tree on your birthday. Return borrowed vehicles with the gas tank full. Look people in the eye. Be the first to say hello. Have a dog. Wave at kids on school buses. Marry only for love. Rekindle old friendships. Call your mother and your dad too.
lifes little instructions
If you pick me a flower, I’ll wear it in my hair. I’ll stash little notes for you where you least expect them. I don’t have many firsts left, but I’d like someone who I could offer all of my lasts. We’ll make history together. I’ll wait for you even if you’re late - and I won’t complain about it. Promise. Kindness to cashiers, valets, waiters and maddeningly slow postal clerks who would try the patience of Gandhi is a must. I will feel safe and most at peace in your arms. When you’re counting...
Pretty good list, but maybe too lengthy for my brood. Another list I found: No throwing a fit. If you throw a fit, go to your room until you feel better. Respect our things and each other. Use pleasant inside voices to speak nicely. Be a listener. Also, once I put these rules on the wall, I have to follow them, too. Eek!
