Pigs are not patient creatures. When they want something they squeal, loudly!
As the rush of Christmas season begins, let's treat each other not only with treats and sweets but with human-kindness, 'kay?
If we could see beneath the skin
That veils the grail cradled within
If we could see we would begin
To understand and realize
How very much alike we are
For want and need, though oft they spar
Are common ground of human heart
That spills in tears, in smiles and sighs
Ah, we would not be strangers then
As we purvey the plight of men
For we are born brothers with yen
To love and to be loved
And we all want a hand to hold
Home-fires when the night is cold
Hope to cling to as we grow old
And to be understood
If we could see beyond the sigh
That slips into Time’s kindred sky
Then we would find that you and I
Are commonly designed
...and in each heart of humanness
Trembles the want for happiness
Thus we should seek with humbleness
To be patient and kind

Yesterday, at every single stop I made while running errands, it seemed to require an added amount of patience, to simply stand and wait...and wait while check-out problems were sorted out, while the cashier waited and waited for someone to help him/ her...
The busy Christmas season approaches. Let's remember to be patient and kind 'cause NOBODY likes to be snapped at.
