We had a 200plus mile road trip each way so we talked a lot.
At the graduation it was crowded and as people were filing in and about, I was cut off by several people. I did what I usually do and then went with Fourth to our seats. When we sat, Fourth said something to me that made me feel so good. She said Mom, you are so nice it's like you are Canadian.
Honestly, that statement made me feel so good. Then when we came home and she retold the events of the day, and shared that I apologized and then moved out of the way for the group, the others somewhat laughed. I confess, I do not seek approval or attention from any. I try very hard not to be anything other than me. At the graduation, we did not have a family member graduating, so I moved aside because, perhaps those that cut me off did and they were hurrying to get where they needed to be to see their loves.
I am not on this planet to be the fastest, tallest, smartest, richest, or even the happiest. I also know I am not on this planet to ruin another persons day. I know I have and will in the future, but it is not a goal I set out to do. I would much rather allow another to get ahead of me and then I apologize. This is sincerely who I am.

I love how creative people are with memes. This is a cute one.
Oh and mean it.
This is nice when someone else is so kind! Makes a good
day even better!
I pick up items on the floor and put them back where
they belong. I can't help myself, but I am thankful that
we have the variety of stores we have and this simple
measure keeps things nice. I also return my shopping cart-
it is something important in an area that has such winds,
I don't want anyone's vehicle to get dented by the shopping
cart I used.
