'INSTA'-WEEK: A Life in Pictures (02/08)

It's been one heck of a frosty week but I've kept busy, playing in the snow, blowing out my birthday candles and sneaking in a 'snow day' to settle in with a fabulous new book!
And if that wasn't enough to keep my calendar buzzing, I kicked off my newest Twitter campaign, #kickstartkindness, devoted to reminding all of us that any act of kindness, big or small will make all the difference in the world!

HOW TO BEHAVE HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE: Help Others In Need


To the group of high school girls walking through the parking lot.

I can tell by the way your jackets were left unzipped that you probably don't find it so cold out but it is, very cold in fact for the little old lady struggling ahead of you to push her cart through the slush of the parking lot.

I know that you could see her struggle too since I could hear the bunch of you making jokes at the lady's expense, only stopping when granny almost slipped as she was trying to control her overloaded cart. One of you even glanced backwards as you passed her, a sliver of concern on your face as you watched the lady, trying her best to place the heavy groceries into her trunk as quickly as, what I imagined must have been at least 80 year old hands could go in the biting cold. You probably had enough time to glance a second or even third time since the old woman, arms bent and trembling, lifted the heavy grocery bags into her trunk, continuing to hold onto her scarf and hat as the wind had picked up speed at this time. But no one glanced back and definitely did not think twice of the lady.
I get it girls, we all get it. One of the rites of passage into 'teenage-hood' is the ability to be completely oblivious to life around them but had any one of you stopped for a moment and thought about showing a little courtesy to this old woman (or any person in need really) you would have been greeted with a world of appreciation. I know this because I was shown this genuine appreciation when I helped her. Sure I had my own groceries to put away and control my children in the parking lot but I threw the groceries (and kiddies!) in the car, locked the doors and offered a hand to the woman whose smile of thanks lit up my grey day.
Remember, youth is fleeting but kindness is forever.

HOW TO BEHAVE HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE: Excuse Me, Have You Seen My Bread Plate?


To the young man having holiday brunch with his girlfriend's family.

I could see you were uncomfortable. I am presuming that you were meeting the young lady's family for the first time and at a big holiday brunch no less. The pressure was on to set a good impression and the last thing you needed was to be embarrassed by reaching for the wrong bread plate.
In the grand scheme of things, it really wasn't something to get bent out of shape about but I understand. You didn't want anything to make you more nervous than you already were and grabbing onto her grandmother's hand by accident probably didn't help matters for you.
(I thought you were doing just fine and by the look on her father's face, he did too!)
That my boy is exactly what good manners were made for, making one feel at ease in whatever environment they might find themselves in.

Your bread plate is always placed to the upper left of you dinner plate.
