I was just in Florida recharging my batteries.  The management pipes music throughout the entire complex that I stay at which is something that I absolutely love.  One of the days as I was sitting by the pool, I heard this song come on.  I’m not a regular listener of country music, but the lyrics of this song really struck me.  Here are the words to the song HUMBLE & KIND by Tim McGraw:

You know there’s a lot that goes by the front door
Don’t forget the keys under the mat
Childhood stars shine, always stay humble and kind
Go to church ’cause your momma says to
Visit grandpa every chance that you can
It won’t be a waste of time
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why
Bitterness keeps you from flying
Always stay humble and kind
Know the difference between sleeping with someone
And sleeping with someone you love
I love you ain’t no pick up line so
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When those dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

When it’s hot, eat a root beer, a popsicle
Shut off the AC and roll the windows down
Let that summer sun shine
Always stay humble and kind
Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you’re goin’
Don’t forget turn back around
Help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind

 

These are ALL lessons my loving and incredibly hard working parents taught me.  Lessons Andrew and I want to pass on to our babies.  I don’t have a whole lot more to say about this…The universe has provided many blessings for me.  I am so thankful for my parents and the loving guidance they gave (and still give to this day!!) me.
