Don't be ugly.

You may know that I've already written a post with this title ("Don't be ugly."). (click HERE to go there), but I want to again, because, well, I just want to.
You see, I saw an ugly lady not long ago, and she was so ugly I knew I had to blog about her, so as to teach you and me a lesson.

There were some people who came into the tea room for a birthday party of a little girl.  They had a table reserved right in front of the piano, so I couldn't help but see them. There were several adults.  One of the female adults was very friendly to everyone, except to one man, (who turned out to be) her husband.   Every single time she’d talk to him - or ask him to do anything - her whole expression on her face changed, to what looked like disgust. And I think her body language showed disgust, too.

It was really disgusting.

Ah, but when new people (adults and children) would join the group she would turn on her effervescent self and gush and hug.  Then her husband would ask her a question... and there she’d be again... looking ugly, and talking back at him.
‘Course maybe I shouldn’t judge.  I mean, maybe he was unfaithful to her - and she hated him for it.
Or maybe he beat her every night.
Whatever.
She was very well-dressed and had a lovely hairdo, and just right makeup. 
But she was ugly.

Little did she know I wasn't just playing background music.
I was judging her.
And not liking her.

Hmm.

I don't always - every single minute - feel maximumly lovey dovey towards my hubby.
But I hope and pray I never treat him with disgust and disdain.
It is ugly to do so (no matter how nice one's hair looks).

So the lesson is: BE NICE.   Treat your spouse with respect.
And treat your coworkers with respect.
And your boss, of course.
And your kids, and ALL your relatives.
And salespeople.
And waiters/waitresses.
And auto-mechanics.
And neighbors.
And everyone.
Oh...
And yourself.

Don't be ugly.

Here's a good Bible passage...

"Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe.”
Philippians 2:14-15
My daughter got her (first) tattoo a few years ago. ... three little stars on her ankle.  She told me this passage was her inspiration.



The lesson? Sometimes tattoos are okay!!!

Be nice.
And vote in my newest poll! (upper right). Thanks
