One thing I have always know is that my daughters are sweet-hearts. They have the most gentle, kind, compassionate hearts. A friend used to call it ‘tender heart’ and that truly fits because their heart is so open and full, so tender, with kindness that it leaves itself unguarded and easy prey for someone who is wicked. Something that I have noticed is that when their beautiful heart gets stomped on, the pain of the brutal act is not what bothers them the most, it is the act itself that completely bewilders them. Their sweetness cannot fathom someone who could be so cruel. It is a double-edged sword that hurts twice as much because they are trying to feel compassion for the person the wielded it. It is a hard learning experience for all of us. It is important to be kind but is also important (vital even) to protect your heart but I would hate to think that their lovely sweet hearts could be mortally wounded only to become cold bitter-hearts. We need kind, loving hearts in this world to warm and heal those who are unkind and cruel. I hope that’s how it works. If not, there is always KARMA …
or ( my Mamma bear primal reaction) my boot to their butt. Ha, ha.
Be kind to one another. Blessings.
