PROMISES

PROMISES WILL BE OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY.  I WILL START THIS POST OFF WITH A QUESTION:  DO YOU KEEP YOUR PROMISES?  I FEEL PROMISES SHOULD BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY AND ONLY MADE WITH THE ABSOLUTE BEST INTENTIONS TO KEEP THEM.  PROMISES ARE A PERSON’S WORD.  I HAVE BROKEN A PROMISE OR TWO IN THE PAST.  RIGIDITY IS NOT ONE OF MY FAVORITE WORDS.  PROMISES WITH RIGID FEELINGS FROM THE OTHER PERSON SHOULD MAJOR CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE AND IT LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP OUR WORD.  SOMETIMES INFORMATION CHANGES FROM THE TIME WE MADE THE PROMISE THAT IS OUT OF OUR CONTROL.  AGAIN, RIGIDITY FROM THE OTHER PARTY YOU MADE THE PROMISE TO IS DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH.  

RIGHT NOW, WE HAVE A MAJOR PANDEMIC ON OUR HANDS.  I PROMISED MY DAUGHTER TO GO BACK TO IDAHO SOON AND WAS PREPARED TO BOOK A TICKET.  HOWEVER, DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS-19 OR COVID=19, EVEN WITH A MASK, IT, IN MY OPINION WOULD BE A MAJOR MISTAKE TO FLY FOR ME. I HAVE AN AUTOIMMUNE CONDITION THAT IS CHALLENGING ON MY IMMUNE SYSTEM PLACING ME IN A HIGHER RISK GROUP TO COME DOWN WITH THIS VIRUS.  SINCE SYMPTOMS HAVE UP TO A 14 DAY INCUBATION PERIOD, WE EASILY COULD BE AROUND SOMEONE WHO APPEARS TO BE ASYMPTOMATIC AND THEY HAVE THIS.  IT WILL NOW NOT BE POSSIBLE FOR ME TO KEEP MY PROMISE TO MY DAUGHTER.  LET US TAKE A LOOK AT THE DEFINITION OF PROMISES IN OUR WEBSTER DICTIONARY AND THE DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION.

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF PROMISES-1. A DECLARATION OR ASSURANCE THAT ONE WILL DO A PARTICULAR THING OR THAT A PARTICULAR THING WILL HAPPEN.  

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION-1. A COMMITMENT THAT WE SHOULD ALWAYS HONOR UNLESS THE EXCEPTIONS ABOVE APPLY.  WE ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS THE WORD WE GIVE AND KEEP.  

PROMISES APPLY TO LIFE IN ALL SITUATIONS.  I WILL SHARE A PERSONAL STORY ABOUT A PROMISE I BROKE THAT I GAVE TO MY CHILDREN.  I ALWAYS “PROMISED” TO KEEP THEM SAFE AND PLACE THEIR INTERESTS BEFORE MY OWN YET, I SMOKED CIGARETTES IN MY BEDROOM AND WAS ON MEDICATION SOMETIMES FALLING ASLEEP WITH THEM STILL LIT.  I BROKE A PROMISE AND TOOK A CHANCE OF A FIRE HAPPENING AND WAS NOT AWARE UNTIL THIS YEAR JUST HOW MUCH THIS AFFECTED MY DAUGHTER.  APPARENTLY, SHE LIVED IN FEAR EVERY NIGHT SHE WAS HOME THE HOUSE WOULD CATCH ON FIRE.  THIS IS WHY PROMISES SHOULD BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY AND NEVER BROKEN UNLESS THE ABOVE EXCEPTIONS OCCUR.  

I ASK YOU NOT TO JUDGE ME JUST AS I WILL NEVER JUDGE YOU WITH WHAT YOU MAY SHARE.  BENEATH THIS ARTICLE, IS A PLACE TO LEAVE COMMENTS.  I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOU THOUGHTS ABOUT MY STORY AND YOURS.
