On Your Heart Tuesday
Hello sweet friends, hope all of you enjoyed a wonderful holiday weekend. What is on your heart today? Well, let me tell you what is laying upon my heart today. I know, we have all probably experienced this situation in our lives, at one time, or another. Someone, be it a friend, or family member, tells you something that they plan on doing for you, and they never do it. I absolutely hate it when this happens. But, what truly bothers me, and very much hurts me, is when your in the hospital, and it happens. When I had my stroke, and was laying in intensive care for 11 days, I had quite a few visitors come to see me. I will forever be thankful, and appreciative for that. My family really made me feel loved, and cared for. Several of them, said things to me, that meant alot to me, touched my heart. They told me, that when I got home from the hospital, things were going to be different. They said, they would be coming to visit me, calling to check on me, ect. Four of them, said they were going to treat me to a day of pampering. They were going to take me, and buy me a wig, and let the people there fix it really nice for me. Also, they were going to take me, and let someone fix my makeup, and eyebrows, buy me a new outfit, and take me out to eat. Woo Hoo!! Well, in June, I have been home 9 months now. I never hear from anyone, no one calls, or comes to see me. As for a day of pampering, never happened. I am not upset because they did not take me out, and pamper me. Truthfully, I would not want them to spend money doing all of that for me. But, what hurts so much, is that they never even visit. I long for conversation, and companionship. I would love to go for a walk with them, or out to eat. I just want to feel loved, like I did when I was in the hospital. Friends, please be careful with your words. I beg you, do not say things, and then not see them through. Do not be guilty of saying things, just to make someone feel good at that moment. Keep your word, do what you say. It is so important. Praise God, He always keeps His word to me. Thank You Father, I love, and appreciate You.
