I'LL BE THERE



I'LL BE THERE


HUMMING MICHAL JACKSON'S SONG!

MEN:

WHEN SOMEONE AROUND YOU IS HURTING. JUST BE THERE- DON'T RUSH TO FIX IT!

WHEN SOMEONE YOU KNOW NEEDS SOMETHING, BUT YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT:  JUST BE THERE! & BE QUIET!

WHEN SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT SEEMS A LITTLE "OFF": JUST BE THERE IN THE BACKGROUND!


PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THOSE AROUND YOU. AND NOT JUST WHAT THEY SAY, BUT HOW THEY SAY IT, HOW THEY CARRY THEMSELVES, HOW THEIR LIGHT SHINES- OR DOESN'T! 


PAY ATTENTION TO SUBTLE CLUES AND JUST BE THERE! 


IT'S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT US GUYS--SOMETIMES THE WOMEN IN OUR LIFVES NEED US TO REIGN IN THE TESTOSTERONE AND BE A FRIEND, AND A SENSITIVE AND CARING FRIEND AT THAT.  THERE ARE SEVERAL AROUND ME RIGHT NOW WHO NEED ME TO BE THAT FRIEND. ONE AT HOME, ONE IN FLORIDA AND ANOTHER ONE,
"I THINK".
HOWEVER I'LL ERR ON THE SIDE OF CAUTION AND BE THERE FOR THEM ALL! I DON'T HAVE TO KNOW THE RIGHT WORDS, OR SUPPLY ANY ANSWERS- I JUST NEED TO BE NEAR!


I DON'T HAVE TO RUSH IN AND EGO THE DAY AWAY- I JUST NEED TO HEAR!
LORD: PLEASE GIVE ME EARS TO HEAR AND THE WISDOM TO KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT UNTIL YOU GIVE ME THE PROPER WORDS--IF THEY ARE EVER NEEDED AT ALL!


HELP ME JUST TO NOTICE LORD! FOR ALL MY FRIENDS......
LOVE YOU ALL!

  6. It's hard not to rush to fix it...that's the male part of my personality, I guess.

  7. Dude shutting up is easy.Stop talking, close mouth. It's the listening part without comment that is hard.
