I care about doing what is right and sticking up for those being treated unfairly or poorly. I have a great affinity for the underdog and big dislike for haughty-we’ve-always-done-it-this-way arrogance. I cannot stand to see people left out.
I care about doing a good job, about doing my best and trying my hardest. It doesn’t matter what it is, big or small:
When I cook, I want it to taste good, be good fuel, and satisfy. When I clean, I want my home to feel fresh. When I care about someone, I want them to feel like they are the most important. When I sing and play guitar, I want it to sound good and touch hearts.
When I ride, I want my horse to be comfortable because I groomed and saddled him well and I treated him gently and with respect. When I teach, I want to be sure I hold every student to the highest bar and that I’ve treated each one as a human being.
When I decided to love, it is forever and I work to love in all the ways I can, discovering every day who they are and encouraging them to their best. I will love them through good and bad, happy and grumpy, joy and sorrow, and if they forget who they are, I will be there to remind them.
