Feeling Better

After my post yesterday about all the selfishness in this world {sorry about my rant} I am feeling a little bit better. Remington was running late for school {mostly my fault}. I told him I would drive him. As I was dropping him off there was a mom in the loading zone that was unloading some big boxes and carrying them in the school. I almost told Remington to go hold the door for her but he was out of the car so quick I didn't get a chance. The next thing I know he is running over and holding the door open for her. Maybe I have taught him consideration for other people!

Examples are great (and you are a great example, Amy), but sometimes words can be a great lesson, too. I remember one time when Rachel was acting really badly. I asked her if she treated the people at school like that. She looked shocked and told me that of course she didn't. I asked her if she loved us (her family). She said she did. Then I asked her why she saved that bad behavior for us and treated strangers better. I could tell she thought about that because her behavior improved.

I think you are right about society. It's all about ME.

Hang in there. You are doing a great job.
