You know I am a sucker for a good story. More so when it shares the heart and lives of children. What joy comes from kiddos. My own Grandbabes will be here this weekend. I am so excited. And in having them visit, I am reminded of my own childhood with my grand parents. Of the things we did that was so simple yet meant so much to me. I hope to have that lasting impression on my own Grandbabes as we enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
"Just A Minute", Wess shares the stories of how in a minute we can make a difference in a child's life. A difference that can mean the world. You know what I mean. Think about it for just a minute. Who did that lil something for you that helped you to get through a tough time. Or understand an problem you had been puzzled over. And better yet, shared your heart through laughter or tears.
For me as for many others it was a teacher, Mrs. Rogers. She reached out to me when she felt that things in my life were just too much for me to bear. And she was right in her assumption. As a survivor of incest growing up, I cling to the love and help I received due to this woman's love and caring. Just having her listen to me, non-judgemental and then getting me the help I so desperately needed was a God send. I know that a couple years after that we visited and I thanked her for that love. She hugged me, kissed my forehead and told me that her heart would always be there for me. I will never forget her. And have strive to be just the kind of person she was to me for others.
