One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed.
She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, “Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?”
The Mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. “I can’t, dear,” she said. “I have to sleep with Daddy.”
A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice: “The big sissy.”
On the other hand, you have different fingers.
Thought for the day
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” Galatians 6:2 NIV
You don’t have to share your feelings with everybody, but you do need to have one person you can confide in. Someone you can go to and say, “Hey, can I just tell you how I’m really feeling right now?” This is someone who will listen, share in your pain and frustration, and then help you move forward.
