Pretty much every single day, around the clock, for 3 months.....straight.
Coming from a family of brothers this can be a little.....confusing.
See, here's the thing....
Boys are rough and tough and often detach themselves from the emotional side of things. They don't take offense quickly and when they do, a good tackle usually clears things up.
My boys avoid drama like the plague! This is simply not in their brain wave, and they haven't the coping skills to figure it out. The very thought of hearing about emotional situations seems to give them the "heebie jeebies".
They take risks that often seem just plain reckless and irresponsible and they call it "AWESOME!" When they get hurt it becomes their badge of honor.
Boys create battle zones with army men and tanks and feel no remorse for turning their sisters barbies into hostages . They get dirty and stinky and never consider the scrub down they will get later. Boys are weird.....but cool!
Well, having spent so much time with my daughters, as well as going to a week of girl's camp, I have come to appreciate what it is to have girls, as well as BE a girl myself!
Girls bring a whole different component to life and circumstances.
Girls not only look out for their own safety, but also the safety of others. Because they love deeply and profoundly they are often hurt easier. Because of this nature, it frequently requires some crying and discussing. Therefore, they develop the ability to analyze and stretch themselves to new levels of compassion, as well as new levels of love.
Because of a girl's nature, sometimes drama happens. We are emotional creatures! We crave acceptance and unconditional love. In the act of craving we may seem a little unpredictable. Sometimes we just don't make any sense whatsoever.
Most importantly to be a daughter of God.
