Bridgett was on the brink of a breakdown because she could not say no to anyone. If someone needed a meal, she cooked it. If someone needed a ride, she drove them. If someone needed a place to stay, Bridgett housed them. If someone needed a babysitter, she was there with graham crackers and crayons.
To most people, Bridgett looked like the perfect representative of Christian faith.
But the ugly truth of it is that Bridgett didn’t want to say no to anyone. She knew the dark secrets in her past and she was sure that God was mad at her for the choices she’d made.
By providing a hand up or hand out, Bridgett was hands down trying to make up for what she’d done and pay back what was paid in full.
