At one time or another, we've had to deal with people that we don't get along with. Whether it be dealing with annoying people, putting up with siblings, or just trying to hold our tongue from saying something we might regret, we all know how it feels to be tested by others. Part of life is learning to love the people in our lives that test us or annoy us. In today's podcast episode of The Apple Seed, we bring stories to you all about people learning to get along with those that test them. It may not always be easy, but it is always worth it to love those around us. (2:04) "Damian's Limp" by Geraldine Buckley: We've probably been in a situation or another where we think of all sorts of pranks to pull on our siblings. When Geraldine Buckley's brother, Damian, pulls a big prank, it gets on her nerves. What would you do in her situation? Listen to this story to find out how Geraldine deals with her brother and his annoying pranks. (26:49) Radio Family Journal by Sam Payne: Sam shares a memory with us about his favorite action figure toy, Han Solo. Unfortunately for him, the other kids at school also liked his Han Solo action figure. When faced with a difficult decision and having to deal with some annoying kids, Sam chooses to be kind and forgiving. While it may be easy to dislike those who annoy us, it is more rewarding to be kind to everyone. (34:32) "The Soldier's Tale": In this segment, Sam travels to meet with some new friends to learn about a musical score called "The Soldier's Tale". In this musical performance, Stravinsky (the composer) tells the tale of a soldier who goes through many losses and conflicts throughout his life. There are many ways to talk about the struggles we face, and this medium of music gives us a new insight as to how we can get through our own struggles.
