For my daughter….. LOL
Have you ever noticed that your dog greets you the same way whether you are gone for hours or day, or just a short trip out to the mail box. Their unconditional love is always there… often when no one else’s is.
GOOD ADVICE…… Sometimes it’s so hard to hold back and consider before speaking or acting. You can’t take words or actions back, you can apologize but that won’t erase the words or the action. Once out, they are out… like trying to put tooth paste back into a toothpaste tube. There is FORGIVENESS, but I’m NOT sure that the FORGETTING is possible. (But that’s just my opinion)
SCARS can be INSIDE as well as OUTSIDE….. EMOTIONAL as well as PHYSICAL. SCARS are constant reminders of the PAIN or SUFFERING you experienced, but lived through. LIFE is hard, but remember that there is ALWAYS someone, somewhere, who has it WORSE than you. I had CANCER, so naturally I have scars, mental, emotional, physical, but then I have to remind myself, AT LEAST YOU’RE ALIVE, it could have been SO much worse.
TREAT OTHERS WITH KINDNESS…. You never know WHAT THEY ARE GOING THROUGH or WHERE THEY’VE BEEN…
It’s almost comical when I think about it how many times people have asked, “How are you, or How are you doing?” Knowing full well that they don’t actually, really want to know. They don’t want to hear it. Many don’t want to see it either, so they begin to fade away into the past. Like it’s catching. Trust me, if it WAS catching, the Hospital would have you in solitary. LOL
ALSO…. when people ask your opinion….. they don’t really want to know what it is if it’s different from their own opinion. Stupid really, how can you have debate or solve problems if everyone only discusses topics they agree on or they know the other person wants to hear. (This happens in relations too, people try to be what their “other” wants them to be, or what they “expect” them to be. How many hours of Life are wasted on us (anyone) trying to be whatever we think someone we love or revere wants us to be….. be they parent, loved one, boss, date…
An now you can endure reading one of my older poems regarding child abuse. I do not know who the original artist is/was, but I’ve seen the same picture photoshopped to look other ways, so if you know the artist, let me know. Child Abuse is just one of those things I really get dangerously upset about. (probably because as a School Counselor I saw a lot and had to deal with a lot. I’ve been to court in defense of a child more times that I wish to remember)
MAY YOU ALL HAVE A VERY HAPPY AND BLESSED WEEK.
*Stupidity for the week:
1. The guy got into BIG trouble for handing out FREE copies of the Constitution on CONSTITUTION DAY
2. Now OUR children don’t even have to ask US about any sexual questions they may have. NOW all they have to do is go to a GOVERNMENT site, set up explicitly for the purpose of raising our children.
