Today I Choose:

To be kind, even if those around me aren’t

To be patient, even if I am in a hurry

To listen, even if I have much to say

To be compassionate, even if I disagree

To comfort, even though I am hurting

To smile, even though I’d rather scowl

To offer understanding, even though I may not ‘get it’

To serve, even though I am thirsty

To love…..because I am loved….first, last, and always.
