Sorry it’s been a while since our last post. Ed came down with the flu a couple weeks back and is just getting back to feeling well again.
Ed is very thankful to Leslie for the wonderful care she gave him through his illness. She got him some flu medication from the store. She made him homemade chicken soup. She got him a cool rag to put on his feverish head, and she kept it cool by rinsing it out regularly. It was nice.
This morning’s conversation went something like this.
Leslie: “Tonight maybe I’ll take you out to dinner.”
Ed: “That’s so nice!”
Leslie: “It’s nice to be nice.”
It’s nice to have someone be nice to you.
And, it’s nice to be nice.
You can’t control when someone is nice to you. But you can control when you’re nice to someone else.
Who can you do something nice for today?
Do something nice for someone else today. The world needs more niceness. There doesn’t seem to be enough niceness to go around. Make more niceness. Produce more nice. Nice is … well, NICE! It feels good to receive niceness. And it feels good to be nice to someone else, whether that someone is your spouse, a neighbor or even a complete stranger.
In the wise words of Leslie: “It’s nice to be nice!”
