Friday's Fab Five

I know, I know. This is going to sound like a church talk but it's what is on my mind so bear with me! These are the things that feel so fabulous to me right now;

1. Humility - There is a detoxing goodness about being humbled and a quiet sweetness that accompanies adversity.

2. Kindness - Simple and caring acts mean so much and make such a difference. Thank you Kougy for always checking in and making me laugh whether you mean to or not!

3. Past experience - From it we build character and gain strength that fill our reservoirs that we draw upon in the future (when we don't feel strong or wise).

4. Service - It is the quiet, loving effort of others that lift our heavy hearts. Thank you for the visit and dinner on Sunday, Cynthia. You are wonderful and I do so love you, my friend.

5. Learning - I love to learn and that's what we're here to do. Most of the time I learn the hard way, kicking and screaming the whole time but ultimately I do learn and that part of it feels good.

On the B Side: I am grateful for the simple things in this life and appreciate the love and support of so many!

I really enjoyed this post and didn't think it sounded like a church talk... just personal experience talking. I'm glad that you have great friends and family that support you too. The world is so much better when we all take care of each other!

I WISH I heard such inspiring things at church! :)

Love your guts. I was supposed to call you, but I fell asleep and now it feels too late. (12:25am) I'll catch you in the mornin'!
