Same goes for the little girl of a friend of mine who announced to her mother one day in the TNPC Ladies’ restroom that a particular church member, who was also in the room at the time, had a large posterior. The little girl was in no way wanting to be malicious…in her own mind, she was merely making an observation!]]>
She smiled and looked down at her son and then at Thumper. ” I am going to call him Bambi,” she said. Thumper stood there for a moment, thumping his foot.
“That’s a funny name”, he said at last.
Thumper’s mommy scolded him, very gently, “Thumper”, she said, “What did your father tell you this morning?”
Thumper hung his head down, just a bit and replied, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothin at all!”
And you know, that is really what we should all remember. We should always remember to say nice things about each other.]]>
