Thankful Thursday - The Difference

“One day spent with someone you love can change everything.” Mitch Albom

Sometimes I go about doing whatever it is I do.....taking care of things I have day to day with all of life's must dos, and then I stop, take time, grab someone I love, and everything changes. 

Being with someone(s) I love, experiencing the moment.....revealing in the day, giggling, sharing - those are the absolute best times, what really counts and what pumps me to keep going. I love those moments, the moments when love takes over.  

I'm grateful for those in my world who I can be myself with.....the people who love me just as I am.

There was a time I couldn't feel love. I ran on all the lies I had been told, I was worthless and undeserving of love and kindness. It's what I'd been told and what I believed.

All the kindness and love in my life started b/c He touched me, broke the chains,  and stayed. Love is so incredibly powerful. It frees and it makes me want to reach out and give back...again and again and again. 

Love makes all the difference. Happy Thursday, Guys.

Yes, LOVE makes all the difference! His extravagant love is amazing and when we realize that He loves us just as we are, we want to be better by giving back to Him and the world. Have a fabulous day, Nikki. Great post!

Blessings and hugs from PEI,

What a lovely post Nikki, and I also liked your choice of picture.

We are all too guilty of rushing around and not always remembering just what and who is important.

Hope you have a good weekend

All the best Jan

Nikki, I love how He can break the chains and show us that we are so very worthy of love... always.... I had to learn this all over again and I am grateful to be getting there more and more each day xox

As my mom slides ever more into dementia, she becomes more needy of my presence. I am seeing that sometimes just being with someone is the greatest act of love you can give.
