When a man points a finger at someone else , he should remember that four of his fingers are pointing to himself." Louis Nizer
This is the season of joy and love and laughter and magic. It is supposed to be a season of children and happiness.
But sometimes when you are out holiday shopping or even at the grocery store people will surprise you. Sometimes rude behaviour takes center stage, there can be pushing shoving , name calling ,line cutting .
I have seen kids crying parent's shouting and the list goes on forever.
It's all about the Holiday stress . Now that I am older and wiser I can see the frazzled look in someone's eyes. People are worn down and out have little money to spend and little time to do it in. I would like to think that line jumper has a sick mother at home, or the lady screaming at her kid just lost her job.
While there is a reason for the season there is also a reason unknown to us for this bad rude questionable behaviour. Should you give them the same back? I am not a Saint I am not perfect, I just give them a smile, sometimes a kind word and move on.
May the magic of Christmas touch all our hearts.
