Snow Thoughts

When the weatherman says
Heavy inches of snow for today
It’s off to the store; you must go
Take an extra second or two
Think of others beside you
Do they need milk or food to eat
Maybe knock on their door with a greet.
It’s a wonderful thing to do
When you think of others beside you.

Daily Prompt/ One Word Prompt/ Tend




Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.


  1. regularly or frequently behave in a particular way or have a certain characteristic.

Have you ever looked at an adult and wondered where in the world they got their behavior or how can that be done?


I have and it is true that many of our actions as adults are a chosen decision. It is also true that our up-bringing has a lot to do with what we accept as alright.

I know I have been dining out and have been shocked at the lack of manners from some people. My mother used to use a fork and lightly poke me in the elbow if my elbows rested on the table. We were not allowed to swing our legs or chew with our mouths open or speak with food in our mouth. When we wanted to leave the table, we had to ask, “May I be excused”?


I can’t stand to watch someone eat, even for a second, if they are chewing their food with their mouths open. The one chewing with their mouth open probably tends to eat that way because they were brought up that way. I tend to have excellent manners because of my upbringing but I will let you in on a little secret. When I am home, I put my feet up in front of the TV. I don’t have that table to even begin to rest my elbows on. I enjoy myself. I am grateful though for what I thought were my parents strict table rules because when I go out in public; I know how to eat properly.
