How do you take this statement "Bless your heart"/ Please add a funny ecard!  I never knew this term had so many meanings.

  • Out of curiosity, has she ever stepped on a Lego? Cause that could fix that.

    HaHa- she has. The woman just doesn't swear. It's strange and slightly disturbing how in control she is


    Stepping on a Lego and not cursing is strange and downright demonic in my opinion. How can you not cuss after finding a lego in the dark with the bottom of your foot? Those things are fucking PAINFUL! LOL

  • Because she's a lady and has never, ever, even uttered the word D*MN.

  • aw, love it!!! I like the whole expression in fact. Bless your heart... usually means the person being blessed has made mistake that is almost funny and the person saying bless your heart can hardly stop their eyes rolling. LOL!

  • we use it several different ways in the South. One way, a sick person in the hospital: "Bless his heart, I hope he's ok." Someone being an idiot: "He's about as dumb as a door nail, bless his heart."

  • I take it the way my very religious former SIL meant it: Go Fluff Yourself.

  • From my experience, it depends on the context. Sometimes it is used genuinely, but most of the time it's a fail safe for gossiping about people. You know, the 'did you hear about such and such. This and this happened, and now she's up-a-stream without a paddle. She should have seen it coming. Bless her heart.'

  • Whenever my family has used that term, it was usually when someone did something really sweet. "Aww, well bless your heart- that's so sweet of you."

  • We have always said it when someone is sick, someone is generous, when talking about children, and to say it when we do not want to say or hear anything more about someone who we know does not have all their wires connected. ;-)

    IKR?!

    She has, last I heard, 7? kids. I guess it comes with the territory. Think Mrs. Duggar calm. Eerie calm.
