When we talk about being gracious, what do we mean? i checked the meaning at dictionary.com and found this: "Characterizedbyorshowing kindnessandcourtesy."
Being gracious distinguishes us, especially in situations when it is challenging to do so. Road rage is an all-to-common example. People can't make mistakes without someone taking offense rather than graciously acknowledging that "things happen" and letting it go.
Life is not a race where we need to elbow each other aside to get ahead. Let's face it--we are all headed to same end game. Why not make the journey with grace?
