In cleaning up, going through boxes, I came across a file folder from days gone by. In the file folder I had copies of a paper I had typed and copied to enclose with special little boxes I made to send to friends.
Special Tool Box, for someone important
Rubber band to remind you how wonderful a hug is, to give or receive
Tissue – to remind you to dry someone’s tears, perhaps your own, so you can see the tears of others.
Button – to remind you to “button your lips” to keep from saying mean things about others or talking when it is not appreciated.
Toothpicks – to remind you to “pick ” out the good qualities of everyone including you.
Band-aid – to remind you of healing hurt feelings, either yours or someone else’s
Candy kiss – to remind you that everyone needs a nice treat occasionally
Gold thread – to remind you that friendship is the golden thread that ties together the hearts of everyone
Eraser – to remind you that everyone makes mistakes sometimes that is all right
Lifesaver candy – to remind you to think of ne as your lifesaver, whenever you need to talk, feel free to come to me
Mint – to remind you that you are worth a MINT to me!
I can not take credit for this idea, I just remember it making the rounds at the hospital I worked at many years ago. I sat on many committees and being a teaching hospital, I also had to meet with peers in other hospitals on various matters. This little “piece” was much talked about at the time. Everyone thought it to be such a great idea. Finding it again, has brought back memories of another time and place. I also think that it very much applies to NOW. What do you think?

It’s interesting because it’s different
Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them. Avoid getting trapped in the mindset, “this is the way it has to be” and free your mind consider other possibilities.
Bom dia to all, Have a great day!
