Shine On

Today I am thankful.

I have been reflecting so much lately about the people in my life who have cared. Who have loved me. Who have been there in my bright moments and in my dark times.

Those who have encouraged me with a kind word. Those who have strengthened my faith. Those who have encouraged me to be myself and have loved me in spite of me. Those who have laughed with me, cried with me. Prayed with me. Told me they loved me. Shared a coffee with me. Been a listening ear. A helping hand. Given me a smile. A knowing look.

Just so thankful for those who have impacted my life. Those who have crossed my path that have made me want to be a better person. A better wife. A better mom. Just a better me.

You never know what your kind words/deeds/prayers can do for someone. A someone like me.

On those days that I wanna quit, you make me want to keep on going. To smile. To laugh through hard times. You make me see I can do it, because you did! You share your faith, your experience and don’t look down on me.

And to you tonight, I say, “thank you!”


Life isn’t always easy but it is people like you that make it easier.

I hope in some small way I can give back to you, too.

You, my friend, light up my life!

Shine on.
