Sometimes, without intending to, we destroy our relationships "Piece by Piece."
Truly - by back-biting, ignoring one another, discouraging one another, putting others before our partners, disregarding that person, thinking the worst of that person, speaking "smack" against that person in front of others or to others.....
You fill in the ways, "Piece by Piece," the ways and the words that you and I have done or said that certainly do not build up and "shore up" our relationships....
Go ahead -- reflect now --- and share your reflections below in the comments.....
Piece by Piece: How have you torn down a loved one? And what did that Piece by Piece equal?
Maybe someone will see themselves in your comments too....... and reflect.....and ponder.....
Then - watch this Kelly Clarkson video referenced below.
(I saw it while reading this blog post: https://protectyoungminds.org/2017/03/16/reason-porn-bad/)
Background of the video: The author of the blog states..."She is singing Piece by Piece. In this song she tells the story of being abandoned by her father at the age of six and rejected by him again when she was older. When she became successful, her father tried to return to her life.
But HER HUSBAND showed her that a genuine father's love can be truly healing.
(And I dare you to watch this to the end and not shed a tear!)"

Kelly Clarkson - Piece by Piece (American Idol the Farewell Season)
This is one of the judges reactions to her song....
And, Kelly's husband; Piece by Piece, restored her heart.
And so I ask you and I ask myself:
How can I be sure that, Piece by Piece, I am building up my wife or my husband or my child or my mother or my father or my brother or my sister?
Now - I ask you to comment below:
How can you build up your spouse, Piece by Piece?
And what will that Piece by Piece equal?
Which will it be for you?
Ponder a moment -
Will your Piece by Piece equal pain and destruction?
Will your Piece by Piece equal protection and restoration?
As always - it is your choice and mine --
Make the right choice my precious "children" - You will be amazed at the results!
With love and honor and respect for all of you!
