Flowers from my garden.
I might have mentioned this before, but I do not like all the kissing which happens over Christmas and New Year. What is it about everyone who wants to kiss on the lips? I must be a bit of a fuddy-duddy then because I cannot handle it; especially when the family gets together and all the uncles, aunts, grannies, nephews and nieces must all kiss slap bang on the mouth. It is most certainly nothing near a proper kiss, like a first kiss for instance, or a kiss from someone special. This is just pure bad manners in my opinion.
I really prefer the hollywood kiss with a hug and a mock mwah, mwah on each cheek, rather than a sloppy,
kiss. Ugh! Is there something wrong with me? I have no problem with kissing in general, but I would like to be able to decline a kiss from a person who is going to grab me and plant a wet sponge like kiss on my lips.
I may have offended a few people over the holidays because I started turning my face away.
What is your opinion about all this kissing going on?
Do you have a reputation? What is it, and where did it come from? Is it accurate? What do you think about it?
If we have a bad reputation, we might not exactly know about it, because human nature is so that there will be whispers behind ones back, and things will be said that our own ears might never hear. Often reputations may not even be true, regardless of whether it is a good reputation or a bad reputation.
“Just because something isn’t a lie does not mean that it isn’t deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.”
Do I have a reputation? Well I don’t really know. There have been complaints about my *Hugs* on blogs sometime ago, so maybe I have a reputation of being a hugger. You know, in real life, I don’t go around hugging people as you might think. I am, in fact, very careful about the hug and will only give it when it is asked for or when I know the person really well. BTW, my little daughter says that I give the best hugs in the WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD.
Yes, I have had people who have had opinions of me through the years, but I no longer really care about what “they” think.
So the answer to the question, no I don’t have a reputation, and if I do, if its good then great but if not, well then I don’t really care .
*BEST HUG IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD*

For today’s prompt: Tell us about the time when you performed a secret random act of kindness — where the recipient of your kindness never found out about your good deed. How did the deed go down?
If we tell then it would not be a secret anymore, would it? I don’t believe that we should broadcast our acts of kindness. I feel it is more fulfilling to perform acts of kindness quietly, and even secretly if it is needed. There are times when we need to protect the dignity of others, and in helping them we have a chance to practice our own sense, and level of confidentiality.
Many of us have done good deeds. Some have had good deeds done for them, and more often than not, those deeds have been done so secretly that not even the benefactor would know who did the deed for them. There are times when we are moved to do something good for someone else without having any notion on the impact that random act will make on a life. I have experienced having a good deed being done for myself, and for that I am grateful, and will never forget.
“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.”

Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words.
What would your seven words be?
My seven words are not be words as such,
seven words for the attitudes of humans.
With these attitudes the correct words will flow.
