Author: raybuteAdded: May 18 2001Views/Reads: 1172/1Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
The Weakest Link is about a single mother having to do the jobs of so many in one day and also provide care for an elderly parent as well.
 



THE WEAKEST LINK 

I AM ONLY ONE PERSON THAT HAS TAKEN ON THE ROLE OF FIVE PEOPLE. I FEEL
AS THOUGH I AM THE WEAKEST LINK. HOW CAN ONE MANAGE? THERE IS NOTHING 
FEMININE ABOUT ME. I AM THE DESPONDENT MOTHER THAT CLUTCHES HER BIBLE, 
I AM THE FATHER WITHOUT ANY MASCULINITY, I AM A COUNSELOR WITHOUT ANY 
GUIDANCE, A COOK WITHOUT ANY INGREDIENTS HAVE I BEEN DISOBEDIENT? I AM 
A MAID WITHOUT ANY STRENGTH, I AM ALSO THE OFFSPRING WITHOUT THE TIME 
TO CARE OH HOW I LOOK ON WITH SUCH DESPAIR. 

I FEEL AS THOUGH I HAVE EXPERIENCE IN EVERY FIELD IN THE WORK FORCE BUT
THERE IS NO RECOGNITION, BENEFITS OR VACATIONS. IS IT REWARDING? I 
ASKED MYSELF. I STRETCH MYSELF THIN I BEND TO THE NEAR END. 

AS I END THIS DAY TO PRAY AND ASKED,"AM I THE WEAKEST LINK?" "I DON'T
THINK SO" A VOICE SAYS, "THE WEAKEST LINK IS THE LINK THAT DOESN'T ASK 
FOR STRENGTH, GUIDANCE, KNOWLEDGE, COURAGE OR PATIENCE." 

I HAVE GREAT STRENGTH TO CARRY ON THE ROLE OF FIVE. YES THERE ARE
BENEFITS AND RECOGNITION AND EVEN A VACATION ONE DAY. BUT MOST OF ALL 
THERE IS A REWARD A REWARD THAT ONLY GOD KNOWS ABOUT AND YOU WILL 
RECEIVE IT ONE DAY.
