One day, our kindergartner, Mo, came home and said, “Joey be’s mean to me.” After biting our tongue and turning around to silently laugh at the way she said “be’s”, we talked about why she thought Joey be’s mean to her.
That was a couple months ago. We still, anytime anyone is kind, mean, rude, funny, hungry, hyper… etc, use the term “be’s”.
It’s awesome. Because Mo is awesome.
But it’s also true. There are many things I want to be. But as I thought about it, there’s really only four things I truly want to be’s when other people think of me…
When my kids, wife, family, friends, strangers think of me, I want everyone to be able to say…
… the one who greets first
… the one who smiles first
… the one who serves first
… the one who forgives first.
I’ve got a long way to go, but that’s what I want people to be able to say I be’s.
