Heavy is the head that wears the crown

I was looking over answers to the 7 questions with leaders this morning and this story popped out at me from an Australian deputy principal. She shared how an encouraging letter from a father at the school made a difference, he wrote,

"...This too shall pass. And always remember, 'Heavy is the head that wears the crown.'"

It was an encouragement to the leaders of the school and it made me a bit emotional. I think more leaders need to hear this.

You're doing well. It's not easy. Many people envy the crown on your head but completely misunderstand the weight it carries.

I hope that's an encouragement to you today like it was to me when I read it.
