The Least Among Us…

Bertha…is reminding me this morning of one of my favorite stories from…Bertha-Size Your Life!…simply called…Gravy

It’s all about someone else’s perception…of…the least you can do…and…it usually isn’t…least…at all…

For me…it isn’t even always someone else doing the talking…it’s that…other…nagging voice inside my head…the one called…Rita…in the books…the one who is always trying to tell me…I’m not enough

Anyway…for whatever reason…Bertha…wants me to remember…and tell you…that…

The least you can do is…nothing…everything else is gravy! ~Bertha

That being said…I’m wishing you lots of gravy today…and…maybe…a few of Mama’s biscuits to go with it…now…that’s definitely…something…

A Smile is a Smile…

Bertha…gave me an affirmation this morning…and…I’m not quite certain…what it means…or where it’s going…but…what I do know…is…that…resistance…is futile…so…here it is…

When in doubt…smile…

Hmmm…I had to ask for clarification…and…a second cup of coffee…

She…of course…was happy to comply…with the clarification…I had to fix my own coffee…anyway…she told me…that a smile gives the appearance of…confidence…she went on to say…that…I have the answers that I need…to all my questions…in my heart…and…that…the reason I can’t always hear them…is that…I doubt them…sort of like the Wickersham Brothers…from…Horton Hears a Who

So…here it is in a nutshell…the more I smile…the more confident I appear…the more confident I appear…the more confident I feel…the more confident I feel…the more I’m able to hear my heart…and…the more I hear my heart…the less Who-vians…get boiled in…Beezle-nut oil

Okay…okay…I get it…I’m smiling…was there ever any doubt

Yopp!
