We got yard of the month while we were away. It was revoked before we got home, but hey, here’s the proof.  The humidity feels so good on my skin! And the southern hospitality, oh, the southern hospitality! It seems so normal to me but when you travel you realize that it is not like that everywhere. Yesterday Jared and I went to dinner and on our way out it was pouring down rain, thundering and lightning, and a man still held the door open for both of us to exit before he entered and he was getting soaked! His momma raised him right, I tell you! I hope I can teach Lydia and Liam to be like that! Then today my mom and I took Lydia school shopping at the mall. At one point Lydia and I got a cookie and sat among a bunch of men in a sitting area waiting for my mom. We took the last available seats.  As soon as she approached us a man got up and offered her his seat. We sat there for what seemed like eternities waiting for Goose to finish her cookie and two more women walked up at different times and two more gentlemen got up to let them have their seats. So sweet! It restored my faith in human kind! Because in Utah last week Lydia and I were leaving Subway in Walmart, I was holding Lydia on my hip and we were both holding food and drinks and I was pushing a cart. We were struggling. I was trying to exit out of the EXIT doors and people of all kinds were storming in, pushing right past us. Grown men. Teenagers. Moms with kids. Not one single person was considerate or stepped to the side or tried to help or even get out of our way. So rude! We also went to a store where the man checking us out was texting and never even glanced up from his phone. How is that acceptable? And in another northern state we were riding in the back of a crowded trolley and an elderly lady made it almost all the way to the back before anyone offered her a seat or assisted her. Unacceptable! People are cray-cray! A little bit of common decency will go a long way, y’all! Help a neighbor out. Hold the door for someone. Say please and thank you. Let the old lady have your seat. Smile for heaven’s sake! It’s good to be home!
