love is kind
Kindness does not equal being a doormat. In fact, sometimes it is kindness to say and do very hard things (eat your broccoli, clean your room, loose some weight, get a job) in love. Sometimes kindness is doing easy things (eat another cookie, holding a door, using good manners, giving money). I know I need wisdom to know how to be kind. Always. To my kids, friends, neighbors, to the guy who cut me off, to the homeless and helpless. Lord, help me to be kind as you are kind.
