" Don't conceive that fine clothes make fine men, any more than fine feathers make fine birds"George Washington
Ever go to church early on a Holy Day.? You are sitting in the pew you choose praying or meditating. The Mass is just about to start when a very dressed up family shows up. They all pile into your pew without a word or gesture. They continue to talk all through Mass, don't shake your hand or look at you for the Sign of Peace. They make it hard for you to even get in and out of the pew for Communion, Their fine clothes did not make them fine people in deed , word , or spirit.
The same thing happens at weddings , funerals and even baby baptisms . People get all dressed up for the occasion then act like fools , pick fights, snub others and the list go on and on. Good clothes can not change a man or women.
People with less seem to give more , care more and love more. They may not have good clothes , but they know how to do good deeds , and are fine people indeed.
We need to remember this lesson as we are getting smaller and losing weight. Our new clothes can't and won't change who we fundamentally are . Only we can do that by hard work ,kind gestures and opening your heart more when needed. Hugs Happiness and Healthy Living .
