Guess how much i’m a wimp
Despite my best efforts at hiding it, i know y’all know how much of a sensitive wuss i am.
When my children were little, i often read to them the beautiful book by Sam McBratney called “Guess How Much I Love You”. The only problem was, i could never get through the whole thing without getting all choked up. i’d have to struggle to swallow the lump in my throat in order to fight to finish it.
Last night, the same thing happened while i was reading Saint Francis’s Prayer in the Twelve and Twelve. i was in bed, reading along quietly, when i got to the prayer and, for some strange reason, felt compelled to read it aloud. i tried three separate times and failed miserably each time in making it to the end without guy crying.
So basically, i’m just checking in to let you know i’m still a pansy.
A version of “Guess How Much I Love You” read by a guy who contains his emotion much better than me.
