"Humble And Kind"

You know there's a light that glows by the front door
Don't forget the key's 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 wasted 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 mountains 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 flyin'
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 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

When it's hot, eat a root beer 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
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind

"Humble And Kind"

<snip excellent lyrics>
Thanks very much for this.

I'm happy to say that these are pretty much the values I was raised with in my immediate family. But my Mom also pushed 'pride' in appropriate situations, though in what to me seems in a reasonable manner.

Ex: "How did you let this thing happen? Don't you have any pride in yourself"?

Maybe it's an Italian thing.

She also added a pretty good one, too. And that's to be very grateful for, and give undivided attention to, someone you've approached for interaction. Why? According to her: ""When someone stops to interact with you, they are giving you the most important thing they have - their time"!

She may be lacking in formal education, but she's an extremely knowledgeable women!

Everything but the church and the AC part I agree with.

Church is fine if you're a believer. If you aren't, don't pretend to be just because momma wants you to.

And I'm willing to open the windows and eat popsicles up to a certain temperature, but beyond that, I really need the AC!
