Being a parent means having an obligation to protect their children and take them away from any harm or danger. Yes, we might not understand them sometimes, but let us think of what they are going through. We sometimes do not see the hardships they have gone through just to provide our needs and wants.

“Humble And Kind” shares the narrator’s story and what gave her the idea to pen this song. The story goes like this, it was a school day at her house. She took her children to school and went back home.  While sitting in the dining room, looking at her window, she saw a guitar and played it. As the couple stays at home while their children are at school, they had a so-called Spaghetti Day because it was a tiring day and she cannot cook anything for their dinner. They have no choice but to have spaghetti because the mom can cook it in about 10 minutes.

Moreover, as the couple was thinking about what they want for their kids,  they come up with the idea of writing it down instead of saying it because their children do not listen to them.

“Humble And Kind,” it is a simple song from a parent to their children. It lists the things that a parent wants for their children put in rhyme form. The narrator then sings the song and sent it to Tim. The simple song comes with an amazing and inspirational message with the help of Tim.
