A Kinder and Gentler Mr. C

It's something we all know is true
But God, it's so hard to do
To love your brother as yourself
To pretend, no, "know" that there is nothing else
To turn the other cheek
Although it paints you meek and weak
To know throughout your heartaches
When love prevails, hate abates
So, what's to lose?



Friday Flash 55 at the G-Man's

Mr C's off to North Carolina to visit the gandkids.  See you on the flip side.

  3. I wonder when and where the notion arose equating kindness with weakness. Just as an empty barrel makes the most noise, a man who bellows and bullies has an empty heart... and head.

  5. I agree it's too bad kindness and weakness are equated. I don't remember the song title, but Albert Collins sang "don't mistake kindness for weakness."

  8. Having cut Thanksgiving down to babysitting 2 dogs while the wife works so the rest can be with their family I have found that also is a course to no drama.
