A Higher Standard

"Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you. Never excuse yourself. Never pity yourself. Be a hard master to yourself-and be lenient to everybody else."
— Henry Ward Beecher

A Pastor once said that his beloved mother said to him...."I simply won't trust you with these people (the parishioners) unless I see a random child run up and hug your legs."
So true, isn't it.
I hold myself to the same standard....and strive to remain worthy of those hugs.
By the way....
She trusts her son....
