Did you know that it’s National Courtesy Month?  So, please, let someone with fewer items go ahead of you in the checkout line. Or hold off for another second before leaning on the horn. Or put down your phone while you drive (that one’s the law, but it’s darn courteous – and safer – too!).  You will feel better, plus leading through example is the best way to teach our children!  Thank you for reading this and have a pleasant day!
