My five and half year old won a stuffed animal cow at the festival this past weekend. It was one of those "pick a duck you get a prize" games...hence, not the highest quality material. She loves this cow named "Moo Moo." The next day she was swinging the cow around by it's arm (after being warned not to of course). She continued and long behold the cow's arm tore. I told her I would sew it and it would be fixed up. That is exactly what I did and she was so pleased. One would think that cow was made of gold or something...she loves it and has been sleeping with it each night since.
Don't you wish all hurdles were that easy to get over? When you fall, you could just patch it up and all would be healed. Relationships can be tricky. They can be difficult to manage at times. Different things make different people tick and sometimes it isn't that simple to figure it out.
I'm the type of person who analyzes scenarios and converstaions over and over in my head. Sometimes I get myself so worked up and stressed over things I may have said or done. I try really hard to be a good person. I am trying harder to think through my words before I let them slip through my lips. I also know that sometimes we can be saying all the right words but it doesn't matter. The person on the receiving end does not want to hear it or for whatever reason does not want to believe it. When this occurs, I try to let it go. LET IT GO (alright, I've seen Frozen one too many times).
I am learning that we can't always make people happy. The imporant thing to remember is "Did we do what was right and just?" If we did, then there is nothing else to be done.
I read somewhere that God is more concerned with the attitude of our heart. I love that. If you are listening to your heart and choosing to show God's love than it may not be the "easy" thing but it certainly will be the right thing.
Love one another and you will be happy. It's as simple and as difficult as that. ~ Michael Leunig
