OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES

The older I get, the more I never want to ask anybody to do anything for me. I'm like James Brown "I don't want nobody to give me nothin' - open up the door, I'll get myself." I forget what song that lyric comes from, but that's how I feel...today. LOL

Now, just last night I felt like I wanted somebody to just come rescue me and take me away - you know - like in the fairytales. And that's where that thought stayed - in the fairy tale.

Now, that youngest daughter of mine really keeps me on my toes. She said to me the other day "you don't let nobody help you. People offer but you don't want nobody to do anything for you. You don't even let people get close to you." I said before that she scares me, well that statement just really got on my nerves. All I could say was "Who do you think you're talking to." Because I was mad that she was right and telling me about myself. And she's so diplomatic - so she says "Well, that's just my opinion." She knows that I've always told them that their opinion is valuable even if I don't agree with it.

Hmmm. I couldn't even say anything. So I turned up the music and began to sing. She definitely gave me something to think about...as usual.
