Finally, caught up. This is been a bit of a week for me. And I have to ask the question...WHY?
Yup, you have it. WHY is the word for the day. I started thinking about how many times a day I or in fact anyone else uses that word in the course of their day. WHY am I doing this? WHY do they ask that of me? WHY did I say yes to that? WHY do I have to go. WHY, WHY, WHY??????
When we question ourselves, our motives, our promises...we always seem to ask WHY? It is as if we doubt everything we do at times. Think of how irritated we bocome when a child, keeps asking us "WHY". WHY is the SKY blue? WHY do they call that a shoe?
WHY do I have to go to bed? WHY do I have to brush my teeth? I cannot imagine that we as adults taught them that word. Where exactly does it come from? Perhaps a child says it because it is in our nature to ask the child WHY all the time. WHY did you not pick up your toys? WHY are you not eating your vegetables? Why must you do that?
Interesting thought! We are a questioning society, are we not? We ask WHY everything needs to be done. We ask WHY the government does what they do. We ask WHY our lives turned out the way they did. If we look at the question mark??? it doesn't even know which way it is going!! It is curved, straight, a dot. REALLY??? Is there even an answer to this? I hope this leaves you counting for the day. How many times do you say the word or hear the word in the course of a day.
