In My Opinion
(Kathy is Guest Writer)
I know I quote a lot of my Dad's sayings but as I get older I realize just how true they were then and now.
A lot of people need to consider that. They seem to say whatever comes into their minds without considering the effect their words may have on someone's self-esteem or feelings.
"Mom, did you see how huge she is?"
"Yes, that is gross."
She is huge but you could tell by the look her face that she isn't deaf. I know her and she is currently losing weight, having a difficult time of it, and hearing that hurt her so much I had to talk myself blue to keep her from blowing her program for that day. That mother should explain, a lot of medications - particularly mood altering drugs and steriods - usually make a person have no control over thier appetite and to not be so judgemental. If you have never had a weight problem, a scar, a disease, or any other kid of situation that made you "different", great and thank God for your good fortune (because that is a gift from God), but please, also be gracious to others with a kind attitude or God may just feel you need a lesson in humility. Just like Dad said, you may get to eat your words!
