I am tired. I have challenged my little family to stay off Facebook and news media for the next few days. I am writing this on Friday to post Saturday morning. I have been staying positive but each time I put something out about being good, kind and decent to each other I have been pounced on by someone who wants to challenge me. My reaction is to influence the real people around me that are my real friends and family.
We will be spending this weekend going to the Christmas parade, drinking hot cocoa, talking walks on the shore, and spending time together as a family. How will this change the rest of the world? It may not but I am still going to greet people as they go by us. Talk to strangers at the parade. Not about politics or life, but rather, isn’t this a nice day? If we have extra hot cocoa, I will offer them some. I will continue to be kind. I will continue to acknowledge the people around me. No, I am not being Pollyanna-ish. I will point out injustice if I see or hear it but I am not going to go looking for it. I am going to put out goodness, kindness, and decency into this world and maybe it will just change my little corner for now but hopefully the ripple will spread.
So, I hope you will continue to support me by liking or commenting on this post or one of my other posts. I will be back to talk to you all soon but for now I need to take care of myself and my family.
