The meek are not blessed, they are just meek.
This mother blogger, caring for her dear daughter, describes so well her challenge of asserting herself in her daughter's care:
" I realise I have become a little meek when faced with the clinic staff. I wait for their decisions about my daughter. But she is my daughter and sometimes I know better. She is not ill because we have a dysfunctional home or a poor relationship. She is ill because she is ill and this is in spite of the close relationship with her family and a happy home. I call the clinic and tell her primary nurse that I have an alternative proposal. "
