Herbie is blind but I can certainly read this new sign that appears on the lawn.
So, I put his leash on the ground beside the sign and say, "stay."
I go into the clubhouse long enough to sign up for an up coming event.
I feel like I'm a dog-mother but my mind jumps to mother's
of all children, made in the image and likeness of God.
Being a mother is one of the hardest jobs you will ever have.
No one ever tells you that. But, you will always be the mother.
This child will bring your greatest joy and your greatest pain.
It's important for children to learn early about their bodies.
That whatever their bathing suit covers is not be touched by ANYONE.
The doctor is an exception to that rule because a nurse or parent is present in the exam.
It isn't difficult imagining a stranger or crazy person molesting a child
but a father or step-father molesting? I mean, after all,
they sit and eat at the same table, help with homework, give rides to school, protect and support this child.
RAISE YOUR AWARENESS and TALK to the child that
looks normal or excels in school or sports and class. Yes...it can be her.
And TALK to the one that drinks or parties or is angry or promiscuous...Yes, it might
be her too. Just be aware please and pay close attention to your sons and daughters.
If you think something is amiss...it is.
If you think something is wrong...it is!
