These five fundamentals should set you in good stead. Good manners are extended to everybody, regardless of whether you know them, on which side of town they live, or whether they tithe.
Be Courteous: Remember the Golden Rule. Go out of your way to be helpful and kind to everyone you encounter.
Behave Yourself: Don’t be uncouth, rude, brash, loud, coarse, or cause a commotion in public. Only trashy types do such things…..and obviously this is because they weren’t raised to know better.
Be Friendly: Put your friendliest foot forward, whether you’ve been properly introduced or don’t know the person from a hole in the ground. Be sociable and neighborly, just like you learned in Sunday School (“Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself”).
Be Modest: Never be highfalutin’. Practice modesty in all situations. “Why, shucks, I guess I was in the right place at the right time” would work just fine upon learning that you had won the Pulitzer Prize. “Of course I won it, I deserve to” would absolutely categorize you as too big for your britches.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. If you watched the Derby, it was a great one! Go Super Saver! Unfortunately, after celebrating my sister’s birthday on Friday, we spent the rest of the weekend resting at home.
This is all I saw of my 5K on Saturday morning…just the running packet, and we had to miss the Derby party we were supposed to attend on Saturday afternoon, as well. Poor W got sick on Friday. Thankfully, she is much better now, has her appetite back, and is back to her normal self. Here are some pics from Friday with my family. In the first photo of my mom and W, you can tell W isn’t feeling her normal self.
