Be kind. For everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.My husband and I volunteer as greeters for our church one Sunday per month. Last Sunday, I couldn’t help but sense some people were down, stressed, forcing a smile, and going through something I had no idea about. I found it ironic that I was especially noticing this sadness this particular day, and then in our volunteer group meeting, the topic of discussion was what it means to genuinely and profoundly care for one another. Unfortunately, in this life, we can’t escape difficult times; that’s what being “human” means. I was grateful I had an opportunity to smile and greet the attendees and try to show care even though it was such a short amount of time. We really have no clue what people are going through. We just don’t know. I’ve loved this quote for some time now: “Be kind. For everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.” {there are a few variations btw} This reinforces the need to be kind and thoughtful as we encounter one another each day. keep reading
