Hello and Welcome!
Our word this week is humility.
Merriam Webster defines humility as:
freedom from pride or arrogance : the quality or state of being humble
Like, integrity, humility is a characteristic that I have great respect and admiration for: the person who, when praised, gives credit to those who have supported their efforts: the one who has the strength to say “I was wrong. I am sorry.”: and the individual who truly finds it an honor to serve those in need.
