Love these Words

• 11 December 2011






















A beautiful set of words that popped into my mind last week...

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."

So often we think we understand what is going on in another persons life, but in reality we know very little, as not everyone wears their challenges/struggles/"battles", on their sleeves.  This quote serves as a sweet reminder to be softer, more understanding, less judgmental and forgiving.  Happy is the person who masters this, yes?

Pretty sure that's a Marjorie Hinckley quote. http://theideadoor.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1865:marjorie-pay-hinckley&catid=144:quotes-from-church-leaders&Itemid=2483

Sure love it!

So true, especially this time of year! The holidays can be hard for some.

I really love that quote. It is a good reminder that not everyone shows their vulnerable side....but we all have our story and our challenges. xo

I love this quote as well. I have it saved on my computer so that I see it often.

Thank you, by the way, for your kind and thoughtful comment on my post the other day. It brightened my week :)

Yes. I really do try to live by these words. I used to be a counselor and it is so true...so many battles.
