be gentle, please.

June 22, 2014

Last night I found myself experiencing second-hand, a very concrete example of why I added and will forever keep the please at the end of my be grateful.

Last night some of my close friends found themselves overworked, exhausted, and in the end, defeated by an enormous challenge they were brave enough to take on.

….

So the reason I say please after I say be grateful, is because I’m asking you to be grateful when life has just broken you in two.  I’m asking you to be grateful BECAUSE you’re broken in two.  I’m asking you to be grateful when it feels like you have no right to be, so I’m going to ask you nicely.

When someone you love is broken in two, you would never demand they do something.  You would gently whisper reminders of life’s goodness, and ask them to remember, please.
