I was talking to a friend recently and they told me something big. It was not something I was happy about. I thought it was stupid and it made me really mad to hear that this person had done that. I’m not going to pretend like I didn’t get upset. They could see it all over my face- *disappointment*- and let me know. But at one pivotal moment, when I heard something that could have pushed me over the edge from having the upset move from my face to my tongue, I heard:

“Hug them.”

I wish I could say I obeyed immediately. Sadly, I froze. Then the words tumbled out of their mouth.

“Why am I this way…”

Followed by more words that just revealed how broken this person was, words that can never be taken back, words that I refuse to write because I will not agree with them. It took that much for me to move, to obey that still small voice. Why does it take so much for us to just be nice to people?

Don’t wait. Just move. Just obey. God knows exactly what He’s doing.

    Wow, this is a great reminder. Thanks for sharing it!

    Also, I am a big fan of you not limiting your blog to cooking-related things since it means you’ll be writing more!
