Ruby and Winnie joined me on the glider on our messy back porch while the weather was warm one afternoon last week.
Me: I have an exercise that I do with myself this time of year, as Christmas decor appears in the stores. I do whatever I can do to be the nicest customer of the day to any store employees that I encounter. Whether it's a compliment or a particularly sincere Thank You (with eye contact), I believe that little things like this make a difference. I know it makes a difference in how I feel.
During the month of November, I plan to share wisdom from Mr. Rogers with you each day (from the book "The World According to Mr. Rogers") ... Mr. Rogers's words accompanied by everyday images from life here at Hartwood Manor ... this place that I am blessed to call HOME.
