But is that a good? Isn't it better to be a complainer, more vocal, more aggressive? Nice people finish last, so the saying goes. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. It seems like our culture admires and rewards the aggressive ones. I for one don't like that about our world today. It's the good hearted, nice people that make life worth living. I hope Kate stays her good hearted self. Most of the people I truly like and value are just nice folks.
How do you raise a nice kid? Help them realize that the most important things in life cannot be had by taking them. Or as the Beatles sang, "The love you take is equal to the love you make." There's a nice smile.
Love you just the way you are, Kate.
