Tim McGraw - Humble and Kind

Lately I had a couple of long discussions with my husband on how to raise our children in this society. Are we giving priority to the wrong things? What about beliefs and values? We decided to give them some 'Life Rules' for them to follow. I was still contemplating what should I list down when I heard this song over the radio one day.  

The song is simple, yet lyrics are meaningful and beautiful. I hope one day I may also share this song with my children and explain the lyrics to them, so they will uphold these simple 'Life Rules' in society, which I feel is sorely lacking. We parents need to set the same example as well. 




This is some background on the basis this song was written by Lori McKenna, her reason resonates with why we are considering the Life Rules for our children :

Enjoy the music, enjoy the video.


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
