C is for the CARING that you should show every day,
O stands for OFFERING help when needed along the way.

M is for MAKING everyone feel loved from the heart,
P is for PATIENCE you should offer from the start.

A stands for ACCEPTANCE and including everyone,
S is for SHARING the load, to help get a tough job done.

S is for SINCERELY listening to a friend who is in need,
I stands for being INTERESTED, and doing a good deed.

O is for being OPEN to those who are different from you,

N is for NOTICING peoples’ feelings and showing compassion through and through!
