They Just Wanted Their Members to be Gracious to Each Other

I was honored to read the words of Allison Bernard this week, and was "soul-fully struck" by a great reminder. 

Within her posting, she referenced an original version of The Code of Ethics, with a simple summarization of their acticles:  "I think they just wanted their members to be gracious to each other".


Isn't that a great word?Child full of Grace

Webster defines it as
     very polite in a way that shows respect
     marked by kindness and courtesy
     marked by tact and delicacy

I take it even further and think about the word "grace" which is freely given and unmerited... meaning, we don't necessarily deserve it, but we get it anyway.

What if we all treated each other a little more graciously next year, whether or not the "other" deserves it.  Maybe these acts of "kindness, courtesy, and delicacy" would spill out and be a gift that keeps on giving.  Sort of like the chain reaction when you let someone in in heavy traffic, or hold a door open for another, and they in turn do as well.

I'm putting it down in my daily goals for next year.

"Remember to be gracious today."

Thank you,

Hi Cara - the world would certainly be a nicer place if we all practice it just a little bit more every day. A nice reminder for next year to make every day count and do so with a little more grace.

A good reminder to "just be nice" When out and about it seems many people have forgotten this side of life.

Grant - Cool!

Hi Jeff - I've found it rarely hurts to be kind!

Janis - I think I'm always brightened by somebody's good manners - the little kind things are there if we look for them -- just perhaps a bit more subtle than years ago.

Juli - Now you are a gift!  Thank you so much.

John G. - well I am liking your positive face around my blogs...thank you!  I'm very thankful for my groom as well!
