“EVERYONE YOU KNOW IS FIGHTING SOME BATTLE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT. BE KIND.”
The above is a well known sentiment I hadn’t heard put this way but I did hear Britt Hume say it on Tucker Carlson’s show the other night. I plan to live like this; I hope I’ve come close in the past but I doubt I’ve been kind enough. Nor have I always remembered that others have battles, too. “Be Kind.”
“Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.” 1 Peter 3:8
Have a beautiful Sunday………..Let’s all be KINDER. Sometimes, we just don’t know what battle someone else is fighting…
Actually, I thought I’d share today’s battle…My German exchange student is going home this afternoon. He has been every single complimentary thing one can say of an almost-16 yr old; spoke nearly perfect English, studied hard and got a 3.86 average (highest grade in his History class of all the American kids…His professor and I teased that it’s only because he could properly pronounce Goethe!), sought and embraced every new experience, made fabulous friends (and only the best of the bunch at my school), loved my cooking (!), could talk politics and faith like a 30 year old (one who didn’t go to an American college (Smile)), was respectful, kind, helpful and fun. I will miss Noah so much. Except his room was messy! 🙂 And I didn’t care!
