She even added. "I'm sweaty."

I'm praying at this time next year I will be enjoying the Summer weather.

Enjoy your Saturday!

They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
