Let's Bring Back Nice!!

I was recently reading one of my Favorite Blogs and I realized how important it is to just be nice. Nice is an overused, bland descriptive word. It has no pizzazz, no oomph, it's just there...hanging. 
When someone is described as nice, be honest, do you get excited?...can't wait to meet them?...I don't think so.
But that needs to change.

Because in reality nice rocks.

I posted a comment on Rue's blog in response to her current blogging and all- around-daily-life issues. I mentioned that I'm a new blogger, trying to tread water in a sea of blog professionals. I mentioned I have a son who checks my blog to make sure he isn't on it, and I mentioned my lack of followers after four months of heart wrenching posts {kidding}.

Rue was sweet...and very nice. It meant a lot to me. 
I received other comments from lovely women who had read my comment.
Wonderful ladies out there told me they enjoyed reading my blog, and I in turn began reading theirs. I expanded my horizons and made some friends. 

How nice is that? 

Nice goes a long way. You can make a friend, and coax a smile with a little dose of nice. Rue and some of her friends made me smile today. I am truly thankful for that...I thank you for being nice. meant so much to me.
