Humble and Kind

I woke up this morning thinking of these words. Humble and kind. They go hand in hand. When I stay humble, kindness  seems to pour out of me. I learned this lesson the hard way years ago. Then of course, living in Texas, these words reminded me of a Tim McGraw song. “When the dreams […]
