Brodie fills up his bucket

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…

Golden Brodie encourages political donkeys & elephants to read a book about kindness.

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.

  1. This is such a great post!! I strive to be a bucket filler every day and I love this whole idea. Everyone in the world should have a bucket to fill daily, then we could pour our buckets into one big happy bucket filled with love and kindness and pour that bucket over the world to wash everyone with it!! That would be amazing!!! 🙂 Keep up the wonderful bucket filling Brodie and I will too!
