One of the best things about being a middle aged blogger is I can write about personal experience and be able to attract readers who can identify. Those who read these words share one of their best qualities with me-we're human and make no apologies about it.
I try to make some of my shortcomings known in a humorous way, but sometimes I realize things have to be told in a straightforeward way. I learned that the other day from a fellow blogger. If you would guess Liquid, you would be right.
Lquid posted the other day about the fact she would show appreciation to a total stranger being nice, but being too busy noticing something her daughter did for her. After hearing that still small voice, she had to make things right with her daughter who had found some flowers and picked them just for her mother. Click here to read the story.
We can all learn from that story. I can especially learn from that seeing I posted last week about going out of my way to be kind to cashiers, but I had failed time and again showing appreciation to my children when they were growing up.
Don't obsess over things you can't change while ignoring the things you can.
