Everyone Has A Tale To Tell

Show a little kindness
To everyone you meet
You'll never know the story
That makes them all unique

Everyone has a tale to tell
Some happy some are sad
We all can be affected
By the kind of day we've had

So if your waitress snubs you
Or a clerk is less than great
Showing a little kindness
May help to change their fate

Instead of scorn and ridicule
Help 'em above the fray
Pass along some happiness
So they may find their way

Show a little kindness
To everyone you meet
You'll never know the story
That makes them all unique

    Beautifully written. My father prides himself on being excentric... He knows better than to act the way he does... He is unkind, and controlling. But he just doesn't care since losing his wife and having cancer... My being here... He's beginning to care again... Always meet them with kindness... It's helping him...

    If there's one thing my dear old Daddy taught me, it was that we're all cut from the same cloth so treat others kindly and as equals. Everyone is just trying to get from point "A" to point "B" with the least amount of hassle! Good words to live by... hugs and much love, Jack
