Some days …
You just wake up and have the comfort of realising just how much you are loved by God …
Today .. Is one of those days ..
I awoke to a beautiful message. Including some precious photos that I’d never seen before .
Wow … what a beautiful start to my day …
The kindness of the person who had sent them – truly made my day .. and I hadn’t even got out of bed yet ☺
To know that God puts people in our lives – who touch our hearts with such generosity of spirit is a blessing.
A surprise card .. or a phone call.
A text message. A spontaneous coffee catch up.
These acts of thoughtfulness are a reminder of the fact that we aren’t doing life alone.
I love that !
It also makes me want to reach out to others.
To notice that they are hurting .. or lonely .. or that they might need a friendly, listening ear.
These last few months, life has been really tough.
I lost my beautiful friend.
No words can possibly describe how her death has affected me.
Grief deeper than I’ve ever experienced. Or ever thought possible.
It has brought changes and decision making. Appreciation of people and of my surroundings.
It has left me feeling let down, uncared for. People have surprised and shocked me.
I realise that this roller coaster of emotion is due to the fact that my friend knew how to be a friend. Knowing her has made me a better friend to others.
Her legacy lives on …
So .. I say .. hug a friend today ..
Arrange that coffee date.
Send the text.
Write that card.
Don’t hold back .
It could be just what the Doctor ordered !
For them and for you 🙂
It even says so in Proverbs 25:11
‘ A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed ‘
