'Be anxious for nothing..." ~Philippians 4:6

Thursday, November 3, 2016


Being pleasant and polite 
to others
does not require 
that you know 
who they are. 
When encountering other humans,
specifically those who will be 
supporting or assisting you
why not be gracious?
  What does abrasiveness,
and arrogance
ever accomplish?
Who you are
who you think you are, 
or who you've allowed others 
to make you believe you are
does not exempt you
from exercising good manners.
If you must incessantly remind others 
of who or what you are,
maybe you're the one who's unsure;
Neither age, status,
nor accomplishments
are passes for rude behavior.

 Manners matter.
