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 mountains 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”  From Humble and Kind Tim McGraw

When Melissa is in the car she enjoys listening to country music. One day Humble and Kind was playing and she was really into it.  She sang the tune along with her PCA.

The words 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  summed up Melissa’s point of view.

What a joy it has been to witness the reward she receives from the published book, Snowball’s Great Adventure.

What is the reward in her ‘humble’ view?  It is seeing happy people and what that does for her spirits.

It is almost beyond expression but this points to her pure intent.

Out of the blue she recently said, I love life!  When asked why she loves life she simply answered, I don’t know. I just do.

Those would be considered powerful words even by the wisest sage.

Today Melissa was talking about a favorite bird, the hummingbird.  Her caregiver said to her, if the hummingbird is so special then the symbolism of the hummingbird must apply to you.

Upon a quick google this is what was discoverd about the hummingbird.

Hummingbird – a symbol for accomplishment that which seems impossible. It can teach you how to find the miracle of joyful living in your own life.

I would say that applies and is mighty humble and kind.

    This beautiful woman, my daughter, is the sweetest and most caring person I have ever known. The courage and effort she has shown to accomplish this enormous feat will never cease to amaze me. Melissa was fortunate enough to have a very supportive and caring team to help her in her journey. I want to give a big shout out to her PCA, Janine, her mother Kathy and her Speech therapist, Kara. Thank you all for the encouragement you provided Melissa.
    Mel’s dad, Richard
