Bill Cosby “I’m 83 and Tired”
I’ve worked hard since I was 17. Except for when I was doing my National Service, I put in 50-hour weeks, and didn’t call in sick in nearly 40 years. I made a reasonable salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, it looks as though retirement was a bad idea, and I’m tired. Very tired.
I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.
I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; Muslims burning schools for girls; Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.
I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries use our oil money to fund mosques and Madrasa Islamic schools to preach hate in Australia , New Zealand , UK, America and Canada , while no one from these countries are allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia or any other Arab country to teach love and tolerance..
I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.
I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses or stick a needle in their arm while they tried to fight it off?
I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of all parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.
I’m really tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.
I’m also tired and fed up with seeing young men and women in their teens and early 20’s be-deck themselves in tattoos and face studs, thereby making themselves unemployable and claiming money from the Government.
Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 83.. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter and their children. Thank God I’m on the way out and not on the way in. There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference.
“I’m 83 and I’m tired. If you don’t agree you are part of the problem!
5 years ago today the Lord bestowed a most precious blessing upon me.. Thank you Abba for trusting me with such a gift. Thank you for giving Matt & I such a beautiful, healthy, & happy baby boy. Thank you for giving me clarity, peace & joy through him. In celebrating his life today, we celebrate you Abba ♥
HAPPY B-DAY JULIAN! MOMMY & DADDY LOVE YOU! ♥♥
I am thankful that I am here. I am thankful that I was blessed to reach this day, this moment, this far into the year. I am thankful for my health. I am thankful that I have a Father who is always there watching over me. Over all of us.. I am thankful that I have a healthy, happy, baby boy. I am thankful that he gets to be a child, unaffected by the stresses of the world and the ugliness we are forced to endure daily… I am thankful that I get to say “Oh God I am exhausted!” Because it means that God gave me the energy to burn in the first place.. I am thankful that I can say, “Oh it sucks right now that I can’t get this, that I want, but don’t need” because it means the Lord has provided me with the means to take care of all my needs and the needs of my son… I am thankful for my family, my friends, my Nallum, & my loved ones who are not here with me today physically, but in spirit…
I am just thankful to you ABBA for providing me with all the above and then some.. Everyday is YOUR day, but I’m celebrating this day because of you.. Happy Thanksgiving ABBA I love you!
Humbled… Thank you ABBA♥
Julian woke himself up this morning singing in his bed “Jesus loves me, & Jesus loves the little children” … and he’s still singing it! He’s been singing these songs for weeks now, but I pray he never loses that certainty he holds in his heart of just where his place is in the eyes of our Father.
In Christ Jesus I pray. Amen
I woke up this morning feeling a little strange. Exhausted from last week & the weekend, but I’m thankful all the same that I can say that.. It only means God gave me the energy to burn! Saturday was another blessing because we got to celebrate Julian’s 4th b-day which also happened to be my mother in law’s b-day. So some of my family & Matt’s family came to celebrate. Julian wanted a “Spongebob theme” so he got one..
I made a huge pot of Skyline chilli, ordered pizzas, made my famous Raspberry-Peach Tea! Everyone had a great time and ate just about everything. And my baby boy had a blast with everything & everyone.
I feel so thankful, so happy.. And the next day we got up went to visit a new church & got a great word from Pastor Tony
* Such a Blessing*
Lord willing we will be back there next Sunday..
Julian said to me yesterday, “Mommy I love to go to church” :D
I need to take this moment to thank you ABBA for the gift you bestowed upon Matthew and I on this day 4 years ago.. I thank u everyday for this, but today is the day that I saw pure love for the 1st time in human form. Thank you ABBA for trusting me with such a beautiful, healthy, happy boy! HAPPY B-DAY JULIAN! Mommy loves you!
