The Golden Rule

I hope when you come to Red Hill Gallery you will find us to be pleasant and helpful. And happy to see you- because we are.

This week, one of my kids had a problem that required me to make lots of phone calls and visit lots of different stores looking for something specific. It was slightly stressful and at times frustrating.

Cutting straight to the point:

Kindness goes a long way. A smile goes a long way. In fact, even a FAKE smile goes a long way.

I talked to people whose job it is to help me, and they acted as if I was bothering them. This goes against everything our parents taught us and everything we are (hopefully) teaching our kids. And it annoys me.

Something is really wrong when a store clerk's kindness nearly brings me to tears! (That girl must think I am a nut case!) But that is where I was this week-on the verge!

So, today's thought is 'Treat others the way you want to be treated.'

I hope we are all practicing this everyday. Life really is too short to be a grump!

Okay, now that I've vented...

It would be great to get some comments from some of you. Have you been to the store? Planning to come but haven't made it? Love it? Hate it? Let us know. We are on facebook, so if you do like us, maybe 'like' us there, too. It would make our day!

In other news, we are working on a new line of t-shirts for the store. We plan to have kid and adult sizes in time for the warmer weather.

Other new merchandise is still coming in regularly. Our new candles in fun scents are in the store now.

Well, come see us soon! Have a happy day!
