46. Search others for their virtues and yourself for your vices.

The friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.  ~Elbert Hubbard, The Notebook, 1927

I laugh every time I see this picture.

 You waited forever for this play date with your dear friend. You had grandiose plans that could have kept the two of you busy for a month!

What did you end up doing?

Science experiments.

I was so proud of you - you let your friend explore and try out your snap circuits kit. You gave suggestions and guidance but you didn't take over. 

We are really working on you being a good host - allowing your guest to make choices of what they want to do. 

We are also working on you rising and being the better person. Perhaps someone else doesn't play fair or plays differently than you are used to, then you don't over react. You rise, and remember it's about spending the time together not about what you are doing. 

Search others for their virtues and yourself for your vices.
