Today is Saturday. Today, I had the pleasure of being visited by a mini pinscher named Fiona. She is a rescue dog and she is only 1 year old. She is all black with rich brown markings on her face. I am going to adopt her. Yup. Even though I have beautiful plants lined in front of a long rectangle window, they do not respond to my encouraging words other than growing. Fiona will no doubt appreciate my affection.
Today, I found myself enormously frustrated by the lack of respect I have been seeing, especially toward some of my friends. You know, none of us are above being stupid. None of us are perfect. And none of us say things that everyone is going to agree with.
We may not heartily support some things our friends may say or do; but, if the norm is that they are busy doing good, then hey, let’s give some latitude here.
Where is the loyalty people? Can’t we allow some messing up sometimes?
Today, I saw some really mean tactics. It hurts my heart. We are in a battle against some really nasty people who would love to see us divided and conquered. Okay, so someone says something that you just find yourself hating. Tell that person in private how you feel. And if there is no forgiveness in your heart, then cut ties and move on. Don’t spew your hatred publicly. It only makes the rest of us discouraged and unhappy.
Quite frankly, I don’t want to see it. My son sits in prison because of nasty evil people who I want to see exposed. I don’t want to waste what energy I have listening to garbage. I want to focus on helping him and others.
One of my dearest friends has been taking heat because he said something that even I thought was out of character. So, he’s human. I don’t like a lot of things that many people say. I still love them even if I think they are being stupid. Sometimes I’m stupid.
We need to work together more than ever. There are people out there who do not have our best interest in mind. They are monsters. They are who we should be fighting not each other.
Peace my friends….I really mean this..peace..
