I have just recently finished the book "The Help" When I found out there was a movie I could not wait to see it. There were many times in the movie I found myself angry at the injustice and other times touched by the tenderness. The love in the quote repeatedly spoken by Aibileen to the little girl in her care touched my heart.
"You is kind. You is smart. You is important"Words we all need to hear when we are little and continue to hear as we age. They are words of encouragement, support, and love. In our humanness, we sometimes fail to encourage others with words they may desperately need to hear. Sometimes we fail to give the hugs, the support, the time. We get caught up in life and its problems, its busyness. In the times when we feel alone, when we feel unimportant, or feel downright stupid, we need to remember that is not how God feels. To God we are important.
"God loves each of us as if there were only one of us."
To all my blogging friends and to Erica, T-Josh, Stephanie, Josh, Caleb, Maggie, Bruce, Carol, Brandon, Vanessa, Kristin, and Melissa and to everyone else that brings joy to this world,
"You is kind. You is smart. You is important"
Happy Monday Everyone!
Enjoy Your World:-)
(This post is a blast from the past. I have Maggie my 15 month old grandbaby this week, so there will not be much blogging going on. There will be a lot of Nana and Maggie cuddle time, and I can't wait for that. I wrote this post before Joseph Voshell left me in 2013. Initially, I gave him credit at the bottom in the list of names but no longer. I have added Maggie who warms my heart and of course T-Josh who is wonderful:-)
