This sweet little image was when my niece visited the farm recently. Our days old chicks were too adorable to just look at, but when her two year old hands would squeeze a little too tightly, her sweet mama would say kindly, “be gentle”.
It’s a message we all need to remember when dealing with others, with life, with creatures, with our earth. Be gentle.
It’s a simple call to consider – are the words, the actions, the choices I’m making squeezing a little too hard for the fragile, delicate life in our grasp? Let’s be a little kinder, a little softer, a little more conscious of our impact, shall we?
