|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. BY JACQUELINE RAY BUTTS Tweet
