The bible says in Proverbs 17:22: A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones. But each year around this time this standard is put to the test. In the silly season, we start to see more people on the roads, in the shops and malls. This translates into more people driving erratically, cutting people off, honking horns, etc. In the stores, you will see people look to cut in line or other folks will be less aware of your personal space or even hold others up due to their absentmindedness. 1. What have you experienced and what things do you do to keep your composure and a merry heart? 2. Do you share these ideas with friends or family or let them fend for themselves? 3. Do you think things are getting better or worse in this area?
