“People yearn to be heard. Sometimes they shout because they feel like no one listens when they don’t.” – Beth Moore
If you have older children, I feel this statement is more than true. My mom always yelled, but I think more of her yelling was that she was German. Ha. No, really. I have yelled more for my kids than at them, I pray.
What do you want to yell about today? Today, I am happy. Feeling grateful for my roof (that needs repairing), refrigerator that is full (still need to shop, and meal prep), clean running water (need to drink more of), a comfortable, warm place to sleep (not under a bridge or without a home), and my family (that I irritate most times). Grateful.
We should yell more about what we are grateful about than what we don’t have. Or maybe even yell for those who can’t use their voices.
