1. Chapter 1 by JHalpert [Reviews - 10] 7 (1940 words)
Author Notes: I have recently popped back onto MTT this year, after not being here reading and writing since 2010, my senior year of college. I’m now 32, a lot has changed, I’ve found my Pam, and I think it’s time for me to revisit a passion of mine that I’ve been ignoring for a while...writing. Especially writing about my two favorite characters still to this day.
Just a reminder, I own absolutely nothing.

Thank you all for hanging on with me, I know this has been tough, but I promise it's not as bleak as it seems. I appreciate the reviews and jellybeans so much!
Reminder, I own nothing.
4. Chapter 4 by JHalpert [Reviews - 3] 4 (2324 words)
As promised, good things are coming the Halpert's way. I’m so grateful you’ve stuck with me through this, there’s much more to come. I hope you enjoy all the subtle references in this chapter. As always, reviews keep me going and help the creative process! And of course...I own nothing.
5. Chapter 5 by JHalpert [Reviews - 2] 2 (1762 words)
We're going back to the past here to relive some of Jim's memories with his kids. I love these little moments and how they relate to the larger story. Thank you all so much for your time reading and reviewing. If you haven't left a comment I'd love to hear your thoughts or suggestions!
And remember...I don't own anything. Except a goldfish, named Cookie, who lived exactly four hours.
6. Chapter 6 by JHalpert [Reviews - 2] 2 (1687 words)
Recovering from a major accident takes time, and patience. Something that's not easy for everyone, especially not for Jim. Cecelia may just hold the key to helping her Dad pull through.
Remember, I own absolutely nothing except two adorable puppies who step on my laptop while I try to write.
7. Chapter 7 by JHalpert [Reviews - 4] 2 (1896 words)
First, we do have to return to the past, and while I know it's not easy, trust me, the ending of this chapter is some nice payoff.
Music for me is the key to getting in the right headspace for this story, I thought I might share some of the music that I listen to while writing this story. Theres a wide variety but I'll share some that get me thinking about Jim and Pam.
In my daughters eyes- Martina McBride
Ordinary Miracle- Sarah McLaughlin
Out of my League- Stephen Speaks
Basket Case- Sara Bareillis
Humble and Kind- Tim McGraw
Father and Daughter- Paul Simon
Closer to Fine- Indigo Girls
Remember, as much as I wish I owned these characters, I own absolutely nothing.

This chapter came so naturally to write. I was nervous about writing Michael, but it just fit so perfectly. A little longer this time, please leave reviews, I love hearing your thoughts!
10. Chapter 10 by JHalpert [Reviews - 4] 4 (1885 words)
As this story moves toward the beginning of an end, we discover some of the lurking thoughts of Jim, as well as a surprise at the end.
A reminder, I don't own anything.
13. An Ending to a Beginning by JHalpert [Reviews - 5] 7 (1731 words)
Woof, we have come a LONG way. This is the ending to Humble and Kind, and a lovely one in my opinion. However, I will be starting a sequel here in just a few days that takes place in Nashville, and I truly hope you'll come back around for that! I've felt so overjoyed to work through a true story from my life, and to bring the Halpert's even closer through it. I thank you ALL for your contributions through the discord, your AMAZING reviews, and I hope to see you all back very very soon!
