True Friendship is not only measured by what a person says or does in your presence or the truth they tell when you’re present.

The true measure of a friendship happens when things are said about you when you’re not around.

Your true friend morphs into a paid attorney, putting up a strong defense for you when someone comes for you and you’re not there to defend yourself. They also hold your secrets in confidence like attorney/client privilege.

Signed,

A True Friend ❣️

Off, Unchallenged Thinking 

How do you ever know your thinking or actions are off if no one ever tells you. Sometimes we think our learned and established behavior or thought patterns are wise and correct. Truth be told, we ALL need that someone who is unbiased and cares enough to challenge our possibly wrong thinking/behavior. Woe be it unto the man who is never challenged in that manner or never challenges those close to them. ~Iron Sharpens Iron~BHicks 

Not For Every One, Just The One

I saw this photo from Shawn McKenzie and loved it. I wrote some encouraging words below it for women like this. I  pray it blesses you. The revelation blessed me.

If you are this, understand that every man is not looking for this. Make sure you’re ok with that fact and remember to not take a step back waiting for someone who doesn’t understand the value of this, to catch up. They just may not be in to you, or ready for you, or just not checking for you. That’s ok. If there is only one for you that means don’t gaze into the eyes of every man in the multitude wondering if he is the one. It may sound cliche but fix your eyes on GOD. If you deal in Faith you know HE will not make you ashamed, HE knows what you need, want and how to give it to you. HE is your Father. Your greatest champion who knows and calls you by name. Speak your name and who you are and what GOD has Himself said about you. It will help you to remember you’re worthy. As for me, my name is Bridgette. Though I had strayed I am called and chosen. I am waiting, I am patient, I am grateful and I Am LOVE. 

Ich Liebe Dich Alle ❤️

To My GrandPA

 July 26, 2016. I always wondered why people sometimes remember and make anniversaries of the days their loved ones passed away. I always thought, why would anyone want to make an anniversary of a sad occasion?

 Well I vividly remember July 26, 2016. It’s the day that one of my first hearts, someone I, we love with all of our hearts, the day I We literally felt the last beat of the heart of the one who sometimes called us “dear heart”.

Herbert, Pa, Herb, you were and are the best. You were smart you were kind and you are important. You are one of the best role models of a man I’d ever known. Mr fix it. I called on you everytime I needed something repaired or moved knowing you would never let me down. I have furniture in my home that you made with your own two hands. Herb you were and are the man. 

On July 26, 2017 I will remember how you only wore Stacy Adams, How we sang Total Praise in parts in the living room and long, seriously long (no shade though pa) talks about current events technology and how I was your tech support for all things computer. 

 Seriously Pa, you are missed loved , all of the above and no doubt, no doubt you are watching over us all and now having long talks with our Heavenly Father up above. 
GOD Bless your life Herbert. You are now Resting in Peace. We love you. 

Your loving Granddaughter, 

Bridgette 

A Soul You Can See

Some people you can look at and discern that behind the smile and kind words a devil lies. Some people you can look at and know that they try hard to be devilish but it’s a facade. Then there are those people you look at and know they’re genuinely good and you can see their heart. Even if it’s buried under some stuff. ❤️The latter are those with whom our own heart desires to connect.
