Bucket Filler


While searching google for more Bucket filler ideas, I came across a very interesting article.

Are you a Bucket Filler, or a Bucket Dipper?

Do you go through your day filling people's buckets, paying compliments, giving service? Or are your a dipper? Do you forget to think of others, focus on yourself, or gossip?

Today, be a bucket filler. Do something for someone else, to help fill their bucket.

You'll probably get your own bucket filled in the process.

I like to think that I'm a filler, but I do have my dipping moments.

I so HOPE that I am a filler, I try, but I think like Kristina, I do my fair share of dipping.
Today, I resolve to be a filler!
Thanks for the thought..... I love them!!

Interesting. My #2 daughter embodies this principle to me. I call her a depositor. (As in "in the bank acct of my life.) It's amazing how she adds to whatever situation she is in. Rare withdrawls -and we're all in need of SOME. She is a great example to me of service and work and a great attitude. And no, she did not get all of that from me. In any way!

This reminds me of an analogy I heard John Bytheway share once. He talked about how we come to church. Do we bring a cup to hold all that we can learn? Do we bring a bucket? Do we put our hand over the cup/bucket?

I'll be a filler today.

My brother used this for a talk in Sac. Mtg! We do need to fill others buckets and to do that... well, we have to fill our own too!

I'm like Kristina, but do my best to be a filler when I can.

I do my best to be a #1, but I think sometimes I may be a #2.


Don't go there. :>
