I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.
Believe it or not, in my heart it is my conviction that we must have suffering. It is at the most trajic of times that we come to realize how important our family and friends are. I know that when I hear of such trajedies that I look at my children differently. I wonder if I have told them that I loved them and that they know they mean the world to me. Do you have pictures of your friends? I do, at least most of them. Alot of times loved ones are taken from us and at that time of suffering you realize that you may or may not have pictures of those closest to us. You wonder if they really knew how you felt about them. You wish you could have told them just one more time........... anything. How much they meant to you, how being a part of your life made it better each and every day...
As I heard the news, I not only had tears in my eyes, but thought immediately of my children. What if that had been me? Are they prepared enough to survive without me? Will they remember me? Most importantly, WHAT will they remember about me?
As of today, and not just when the next trajedy occurs, send that email you have been meaning to send. Give your kids a hug, laugh with them. Sit and watch tv with them, take a walk. Make memories. Do crazy things they will remember. Have code words for things that you have a habit of saying. Call your friends and get together. Walk around your place of work and make a new friend. Befriend someone who may not be as popular. Forgive those who have hurt you. You know that one person in your family, or a co-worker, that you have a particularly hard time getting along with? Made amends with them. Most of all, recognize the good in people, and bring it out in them.
If today was your last day, what would your friends and family say about you? What is your legacy?
Take the time to find the real meaning of life. You will not find it though money, material possessions, your car or your house. You will find it in the hearts of those who you surround yourself with.
I am truly blessed to call certain people "friend".... these people that I have chosen and have chosen me have truly changed my life for the better. It is an honor to be a part of your lives, thank you for sharing it with me...
To my kids, as usual, you are the best. I am so proud to be your mom and because of you, my life is amazing. I am blessed to have been allowed to have you as a part of my life. Why God chose me, I will never know.. but I am so glad he did...
LOVE TO ALL
