Clarifying a few things . . . nicely

So, along with getting scads of support for this whole NICE idea, there have also been some questions, and, at least in my own mind, some doubts. Not about the value of niceness, but about the implementation, so to speak. I mean, repeated posts exhorting everyone to be nice could get a tad old.

And, I feel the need to define my terms more clearly.

So, that's my weekend assignment to myself (between the Cubs-Cardinals series and the Packer game. GO CUBS! GO PACK!).

And here's my Friday thought/piece of wisdom, courtesy of Larramie: on Tuesday, I called for everyone to be "full of grace," to demonstrate that NICENESS HAPPENS. Larramie reminded me that "Friday's child is loving and giving."

So, let's head into the weekend focused on that.

Reminder to self . . . don't forget that at tonight's baseball game!

Oh, and I'd love your thoughts and ideas on where this all might go.


  1. HOw about sharing our stories and attempts at going beyond the intial temptations of snarling to the results ...both good and ah, not so good....of being nice?

  2. I've been thinking about the same thing, Judy. Niceness has its own rewards yet how do we share that?
