Morning Motivation: A Lesson from the Movie “The Help”

I have just recently finished the book “The Help”  When I found out there was a movie I could not wait to see it. There were many times during the movie I found myself angry at the injustice and other times touched by the tenderness. The love in the quote repeatedly spoken by Abilene to the little girl in her care touched my heart.

“You is kind. You is smart. You is important” 

Words we all need to hear when we are little and continue to understand as we age.  They are words of encouragement, support, and love.  In our humanness, we sometimes fail to encourage others with words they may desperately need to hear.  Sometimes we fail to give the hugs, the support, the time.  We get caught up in life and its problems, its busyness.  In the times when we feel alone, when we feel unimportant, or feel downright stupid, we need to remember that is not how God feels.  To God we are essential.

“God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.”
  ~St. Augustine

 

God Bless You!

Hi, I am a mom, nana, and writer living in the beautiful state of NC. I was married for 37 years and then blindsided by my husband, a former pastor. After decades he filed for legal separation without a word to me. It has been a rough road coming to terms with this new life that has been chosen for me. My blog is a place where I share "The Beginning," this place I found myself, a place I did not want to be. "The Journey," the things we need to do as we traverse this new road. Lastly "The Joy," and yes there is still joy to be found even after great pain. I have finished my first book "My Story My Divorce God's Promise, The Beginning." I am in the process of writing The Journey and The Joy. Please join me on my adventure to a new life. Always remember God's Promise "I will never leave you or forsake you."
