1 Corinthians 13 tells us all about love...
that it is patient and kind.
I was reminded today of that, to be kind to others, especially when I'm hurried and tend not to take notice of others so much.
People can hurt so much on the inside, concealing the hurt behind a smile...
can be so close to tears, but have to carry on through work or classes or parenting.
There was a beautiful woman I saw today and she was kind.
She was going through a divorce...
She had a black eye.

Give someone some encouragement today:
praise their good work, or new hair-cut, or parenting skills or the sweetness of their laugh
...or decide to overlook someone's fault that caused you a delay or inconvenience.
We all need love and want to be understood; some people rarely receive kind words and actions ...and they so much deserve them.
