A few days ago there was a political conversation about a basket being filled up with “deplorables.” I’d like to change-up that conversation…spin it positively for the Lady…after all we all make mistakes and we all say things that we wish we could take back…so here goes…
I have a bucket and I strive to fill it up everyday. I fill up my bucket through being respectful to others, by being a responsible golden dog and by caring for others and their lives. See…each day I strive to fill up my bucket (my heart, my beliefs) with kindness..I become a “Bucket filler” and I glow golden. Folks that choose to bully and hurt others, be a name caller…those folks are “Bucket Dippers”…folks that engage in taking from others…taking and being hurtful. Which one do you live up to???? ….a filler upper or a bad dipper?
So…all of you donkeys and elephants out there…consider reading this book to help you get started. And don’t get turned off because it’s a kids book…there is great wisdom in these pages.
