GRATEFUL GIRL’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
My Pop always tells me to stop taking on the problems of others.
”Ever since you were a little girl, you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders,” he said recently. He’s not wrong. #dadwisdom
I feel very deeply. I care very much and empathize and emote almost to a fault.
When someone is happy; I share their joy. When someone is in trouble or need, I worry and pray with and for them. And when someone is hurting, especially someone I love, I hurt, too. A lot.
Many view this as a weakness; they think me soft or feeble. But I believe the opposite is true. It takes a pretty tough chick to assume the feelings of another, no?
And when I saw one of my son’s best friends in pain last night, it literally broke my heart. I told him that whoever was the cause was going to have to deal with me and I MEANT IT. #mamabear
I told him that I’m really a lot more intimidating than it might seem. I’m scrappy, yo. And when someone messes with one of my peeps, LOOK OUT. Because I may not be the best at standing up for myself but hurt one of mine and I will cut you. Seriously. #backoffmyboys
So, call me a wimp if you want; but if you go hurting someone pk loves — you better run. ‘Cause it is on. Like Donkey Kong, capisce?
1:46-56 Mary said: "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior. for he has looked upon his lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed: the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is his Name. He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation. He has shown the strength of his arm, and has scattered the proud in their conceit. He has cast down the mighty from their thrones and has lifted up the lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty. He has come to the help of his servant Israel for he remembered his promise of mercy, the promise he made to our fathers, to Abraham and his children for ever.
