I was watching Ellen just now. I tape it every day, and I admit that I fast-forward through some stuff (don't tell Ellen). Look. My time is really limited. I always watch the monologue and then most of the guests. But if there's someone I don't know, as a time-saver, I skip them. Anyway...
I almost accidentally fast-forwarded this segment on the Collins family, who adopted four boys from Ghana. They adopted the three brothers together, at once. The mother sold everything she had, including her car, and has taken three jobs to raise these boys. When they went back to Ghana to pick the boys up, the best friend of the oldest brother asked if he could come with. He said he'd only eat one meal and clean her house if they'd take him too.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
What am I doing with my life? Who am I affecting? Am I making anyone's life better? It's moments like these that I ask myself if I am living my full potential. And usually the answer is "I don't know," which likely translates into "Probably not."
A lot of things touch me.
I'm pretty emotional.
I'm pretty passionate.
A lot of things make me cry.
But they also inspire me to be a better person. To have an open mind and an open heart and accept what God has in store for me. I'll find it yet...by the grace of God.
