Day 118, April 26

"Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."

A friend sent me this quote.  It immediately resonated within me.  As I think of my friends and family, I cannot think of one who is not fighting a battle of some kind.  Health, financial, emotional, family problems--we are all struggling in some way.  Struggle is part of the human condition. 

I am ashamed to admit that I am not always kind, much less kinder than necessary.  I am frequently impatient, judgmental, even mean upon occasion.  The kindness that I want to give eludes me in my own selfishness and laziness.

So, for today, I am grateful for those who are kinder than necessary.
