"Without gratitude, we have no wings. The highest and best freedom is to feel ever-increasing gratitude." Laura Teresa Marquez
Some weeks are amazing....in fact.....they're almost perfect.. This week has been one of those....an awesome week....a week that's been affirming..... empowering. And it's been a reminder life really does hold meaning.. I'm grateful for......
-the group of women who came to hear me speak....for the opportunity to tell my story....and to show that nothing is impossible to overcome. They left hopeful....I left humbled. And I get to do it again next week.
-Won the Barnabes Award for my writing. A sign for me...there's purpose in my writing.
-Writing ....I've written 53,000 words in my Dancing Softly story. I get so caught up in it....in the hope I want to show...spending hours trying to string words together in a way that slides down into the heart of whoever's gonna read it.....it's the best feeling ever.
-Friends that are kindred spirits...and like the family I never had. People like M and R and S who are there always.....steady.....supportive....in my corner....believing the best in me...They give me wings to fly.
-Mostly for Him reaching so far down to pull me out of darkness. He's the one that really gave me wings to fly.....and He's the one who truly made me a winner. He's become my anchor and hope.....no matter how dark things might get.....His Light will always eventually shine.
