A Levesque #61 - Last Rope

 I can't even begin to describe the feelings that I have built up inside of me lately.  This is going to be personal mainly because God gifted me with the ability to not care about your opinion, and this blog isn't for people who know me per se.  It's mainly for my children so they can look and see everything will work out.   NO MATTER WHAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HOPE. I've been struggling. Never have I seen such selfishness. Never have I seen so much greed. Never have I seen so much betrayal.  Never have I seen families ripped apart because of ego and pride.   My house and my family will not be torn apart in the process.  We serve the Lord, and no weapon formed against us will prosper.  We are formed on a rock, not sand to blow away when trials come our way.   Somedays will be hard. Shit, somedays are hard. Somedays it will rain. Then, Somedays the sun will shine so bright you'll forget that it was ever raining.  Never give up on those you love.   Pray for them from

A.Levesque #20 - Did That Kid Flip Me Off? YES!!!

Today I was out again, you know living life here in Vassar, MI.

I was pulling into a parking lot tonight and I spotted a child who maybe was 10.  As I pulled in, she looked up.  Her hand rose above her head and she stuck her middle finger up.  Oh dear goodness, you read that right.


So no one saw her flip me off, except me (I think).

I immediately pull towards her and slow down, roll my passenger window down.
You can actually see the panic in her eye.  She didn't think I would stop.  But I did.

As a responsible adult, I ask if she is okay.  She replies, "Yes, my mom is inside."  We all know I just scared the living beans out of that kid.  Not only did she think I wasn't going to stop, but her reaction showed that she expected a different response in me.  Of course, Mrs. I Can Save The World...  

I pull around the building and park.  Just can't seem to let it go.  Because I tend to follow my "gut."  I send my 11-year-old daughter in on a mission with a direct order to say, "Hi, my name is blah blah.  My mom really wants to make sure you are okay."   

Turns out she was fine.  After a while, her sister I think comes in, and she knows my daughter.  We all go outside.  The girls are chatting.  Big sis seems a little mean.  It's normal to have some kind of sibling rivalry (if you must) but we should be teaching our kids to love each other.  

The little girl was sitting outside alone.  
She did flip me off.  
She was also so little.  When I was little, I sat alone. When I was little, I did rebellious things, and for all the wrong reasons.  Making her feel important and special was something I was going to do, I knew that.
That is when life just opens up and offers you the opportunity.

Off in the distance, there is a deer.

It catches my eye.

I told all the girls a story about a lady I met that feeds the deer.  Right out the back of where we were.  That is when her eyes lit up and said, "I know, I took a bunch of pictures of it with my phone."

Pictures for my blog posts...  

I told her how awesome it was and asked if she could take some with my phone.

When I handed her the phone, the reality settled in.  As I was asking her if she knew how to use the camera, just making sure.  Even though I am sure she could use it better than I could.  Her sister reached right over her hand to grab my phone, and said, "You don't know what you are doing." 

My hand, just like, intercepted her hand instantaneously and I handed her the phone that the little girl previously had before I handed her mine.  I told her,  "No honey, it's okay you can have this one."  That older sister looked at me like I was crazy, but didn't say anything.  (I can be a little scary, at least to little kids)

The little girl sitting alone on the side of the building flipping me off when I pulled in was now holding my phone gleaming with so much happiness and pride. 

Mission Complete... 

So she actually took so many pictures of the deer.  
I can't really make out the deer in most of them. 
I told her I was going to post them on my blog because I was so happy I didn't have to search for a picture tonight when I wrote. 

This is why I am writing.  This is why I am here.  My purpose.

I am going to add the best picture to this post.  The rest can be viewed at my A.Levesque Facebook Page 

I had a lot on my mind today, and I had lots to share.  I could literally write all day long about the experiences I have already had.  Then these stories just get put on the front line.

I am happy I made that girl's day.  I am happy I left her better than I found her.  

The only advice I really have though is teaching your children to love and accept each other.  Show them that by doing it.  Your family unit (whatever it may consist of) should be loving and supporting each other. 

Think about what you say to your children. 
How many times do you tell them they don't know what they are doing?   

Their foundation starts with YOU, and YOU have to make that foundation stronger.  

Thanks for listening tonight.  Have a bunch to share, as long as people are reading I will keep sharing.  I would really like to see someone talk back to me.  

Big shout out to Gregg...  I see your comments.  Thank you, my friend, for opening up.
