Hats Women Wear

While observing a unique woman yesterday as she stepped out of her car she looked so beat up. I suspect this woman puts on many hats each day. She could be a mother, wife, sibling, business owner, etc. I suspect she has times when she loves many of them. Yet she could be wearing so many hats that the most important one she often forgets.

The most important one is her taking care of herself. You see if she doesn’t do that then those other things don’t matter. So the question then becomes how can we help her? Those closest to her need to take a hard look at how she is spending her day? How much of it is spent wearing the hats she loves versus those things that others can help her with and by doing that giving her time to breathe. She has to feel comfortable knowing it’s ok to take time for her. So what happens if you don’t help her along her journey?

One day her loved ones will be standing by her bedside while she fights for her life. Maybe if others along the way would have helped her out she may have had more strength and will to continue the fight?

Having been there by that bedside all alone it’s a road you don’t want to travel!

People Passing Through

Here is a harsh reality of life. About 90 to 95 percent of the people you come into connect with are just passing through. Yet it’s foolish to think those people were not important in your life. There are times that God brings these people into your life at just the right time. That’s not to say it can’t be difficult because it can and extremely painful. The thing is you never know which are just passing through and which are there for the long term. But then again wouldn’t life be rather boring if you had the same people to look at day after day!
