I must confess,
I have a weakness,
And my weakness is for those I love,
I mean love, love,
When I love someone,
No matter what they do,
Or how they do it,
I can usually find a reason for it,
Or explain it away as a bad day,
Reminds me of something a friend told me,
She said, 'Angie, when a person isn't on your love list, you can handle them really well,
and most of what they do rarely phases you. But when those of us you love screw up, the one thing we can count on is that you will find a way to make it at least sound better...'
I asked her was that good or bad,
She told me it was both,
Good because those I love know that they can depend on me,
But bad because in many ways it allows them to continue to do stuff they shouldn't do,
And sometimes what they need to hear is the truth...
I know she is right,
And on this Sunday afternoon,
I must admit she was absolutely right,
I stayed absolutely supportive and quiet,
On some things that I should have come out strongly against,
Right at the gate,
And because I didn't,
In essence I was guilty of condoning foolishness,
Well God has forgiven me for my transgression,
Now I am working on forgiving myself,
More importantly, I am working on not allowing my heart to guide me,
When my head and faith are telling me,
To simply say,
"that is just wrong"...and to allow the chips to fall where they may,
Because sometimes we must allow a hard head to make a soft, painful behind...
