Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 26


Annie at McGuffy's Reader and Ellen at 15andmeowing are co-hosting a weekly meme called Friendly Fill-In'sAll you have to do to participate is complete the statements and link your post up here

Here are the this week's statements:

1. Peace __________________.
2. I need to __________________, but I keep procrastinating.
3.  A friend is  _________________.
4.   I _______________ try to _______________.


 ~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Here are my answers:
 
1. Peace happens when we realize that we are all connected, all family, and treat each other with compassion and respect despite our differences.

2. I (we) need to finish cleaning, de-cluttering and organizing our store rooms, but I keep procrastinating.  We have a lot of  boxes of "stuff", and it's a big job.  I will feel good when it's finally done!

3.  A friend is someone that is easy to share with and fun to be with, someone who doesn't judge you or try to change you, and makes you feel good about yourself.

4.   I always try to encourage others.  If you can't think of anything nice to say maybe you need an attitude adjustment! :-)

  1. Encouraging others is a very nice thing to do. I'm familiar with procrastination, but you're right, it always feels good once it gets done. Treating each other with compassion is a very good idea. There's not enough of that in this world.

    1. I agree, Annie Bear, we should do our best to be compassionate and uplifting toward each other, rather than finding reasons to disagree and discredit.

    1. Thank you Ellen, seeing ourselves are part of the whole rather than trying to create division and dissention is so important to me... the future of our world depends on it!

    1. We surely can, Mimi. We see too many people trying to stir up hate, and that is tragic, not the way we were intended to live!

  4. Yes connected!!! That I think is the single most important factor towards global changing of hearts: us realizing and grasping onto how we are all connected. Odd that we are "connected" by so much technology, and oceans apart in feeling. :(

    1. I totally agree with you, when we stop thinking about what divides us and how we are different and realize that we are family, with all the diversity of any family, then we can begin to work together and peace can become a possibility. Children understand this until someone teaches them otherwise.
