Scatter Seeds Of Kindness



If you have a friend worth loving
Love him. Yes, and let him know
That you love him, ere life's evening
Tinge his brow with sunset glow
Why should good words ne'er be said
Of a friend till he is dead?

If you hear a song that thrills you
Sung by any child of song
Praise it. Do not let the singer
Wait deserved praises long
Why should one who thrills your heart
Lack the joy you may impart?

If you hear a prayer that moves you
By its humble, pleading tone
Join it. Do not let the seeker
Bow before his God alone
Why should not thy brother share
The strength of ‘two or three' in prayer?

If your work is made more easy
By a friendly, helping hand
Say so. Speak out brave and truly
Ere the darkness veil the land
Should a brother workman dear
Falter for a word of cheer?

Scatter thus your seeds of kindness
All enriching as you go
Leave them. Trust the Harvest-Giver
He will make each seed to grow
So, until the happy end
Your life shall never lack a friend

So, in case you haven’t noticed, there’s been a lot of buzz coming from the Royal family as of late. From Megan Markle and Prince Harry stepping out of the royal family to Kate Middleton ditching her engagement ring during her latest outing, there is a lot to catch up on. Prince William gave his mother, the late Princess Diana, sapphire ring to Kate Middleton. So its absence raised some eyebrows. Apparently, however, the dutchess had a really good reason as to why.

 

Now don’t go ahead and start jumping to any conclusions like a scandal or something dramatic. That afternoon, Middleton visited the Evelina Children’s Hospital in London to attend a workshop hosted by the National Portrait Gallery’s Hospital Program. The program is all about how art can help kids. Before the dutchess was able to enter the hospital, she had to follow the facility’s policy and scrub her hands to make sure she wasn’t bringing any germs in with her. According to People, the hospital typically recommends that visitors don’t even wear jewelry so they don’t have to worry about cleaning it. So that appears to be exactly what Kate did.

 

InStyle pointed out that this isn’t the first time Kate Middleton removed her ring to visit a hospital, so please, skeptics and drama-makers, relax. Seriously, germs can latch on to anything.
