My Aunt passed away last week.  She would always send an email after reading Manner Monday with a kind word of encouragement and a thoughtful comment about the post.  She was such an amazing lady with a kind, gentle spirit.  Never a harsh or unkind word – she always found the silver lining in everything!  In honor of Aunt Linda, I wanted to share one of her favorite posts.  She would often tell me how much she enjoyed this one:

Kindergarten is tough… on a parent!

Our 5 year-old came home from school the other day with “hurt feelings”.  One of the other kiddos told our son that his hair looked funny.  As a parent, the “mama bear” in me started to come out:  then I got to thinking… this is life.  As a part of life, we deal with “hurt feelings” on a regular basis… someone didn’t like our idea during a meeting; someone chose our competitor over us; someone said something to us that we didn’t “like” and we took it personal.  What I’ve found myself repeating lately to our 5 year old is “we can’t control what other people do or say, the only thing we can control is how we react ”.  It’s been a great reminder for me, as an adult; we may not like what we heard, and we may not be able to change what was said, the only thing we have control over is our reaction.

Tweetable: “We can’t control what other people do or say, the only thing we can control is how we react.”

She was one of my biggest cheerleaders and always encouraged me to keep doing what I’m doing.  Thanks for letting me share with you about my Aunt Linda!   I wish you could have known her.
