boys and girls

i was thinking today.  well, i think every once in a while.  don't be so shocked.
God is so awesome.  his purpose-ness is so cool.  i was listening to another favorite song and it made me think about another maybe not-so-obvious difference in boys and girls.  this is one that i love though.  what happens to men/boys when they see someone cry?  they get mad and instinctively protective.  they feel the urgency to HELP! 
what happens to women/girls when they see someone cry?  the immediately feel sad and want to comfort. 
i <3 that!!!
it was cute the other night.  we were giving us all labels.  jones was heading it up.  he's the protector.  aleemay's the organizer.  boo's the teacher.  starboy's the cheerer (for now).  adejay's the helper.  i'm the nurturer.  pop's the provider. 
Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." COMMENT! IT SHOWS ME THAT I'M BEING READ!!!
