"Finally, all of you , live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble"
(1 Peter 3:8).
Deborah's tender heart and demonstration of empathy:
Definition of EMPATHY:The ability to understand and share the feelings of another
It is so easy to focus on ourselves and our own feelings. I am so grateful for my children's tender hearts and their ability to "understand and share the feelings of another" (even if it is just an innate object)!!
Continuing to give thanks:
-her demonstration of empathy
-little gifts of love on Valentine's Day
-God's love- the greatest gift of all
-a fun LONG weekend
-when one sibling speaks of another sibling and says, "We're being real tight today".
-a wonderful, Godly grade three teacher
-fun memories of sledding down the same hill as a child
-children free from injuries (not quite the same is true for the adults)
-that she was not with him when he wiped out
-that his injuries are not worse than they are
-filled with excitement as he performs his science experiment testing different bearings
