The Help

 Ok, I just saw the movie,  The Help & I read the book a few weeks ago & I’m a convert – loved it!!!  There are so many great take-aways from both the book & the movie with such great life lessons 🙂

One thing that keeps getting repeated in my brain is the quote to a little two year old girl in the movie, “you is kind, you is smart, you is important.”  These are such powerful words & have such positive imagery, not only for a 2 year old but for all of us.  With this in mind, I think it’s super important to consider what we say to each other.  Words that affirm, encourage, support, compliment, refresh, strengthen & even give affection are so necessary in our lives.  I genuinely believe that the people who are in our lives in all of the many different contexts need such encouragement.  And who knows, words like, “you is kind, you is smart, you is important” just might change the world, one person at a time 🙂

One thought on “The Help

  1. I agree. i read the book and saw the movie too. It was fabulous and sure opened my eyes to American History that should not be repeated. I was saved in an all black pentacostal church, the COGIC, What fabulous worship they have! Let us learn from our national history to always love and encourage one another. And never forget, in the eyes of God, we are all equal, rich or poor, black or white.
