A friend is…

To always be cherished….imageIt’s always nice when a sister or friend reaches out and sends us love. It was this beautiful pic above that I really needed…How could she have known that in this moment I needed to be reminded of who ‘I am’…..I am ussually very careful of my words and how I speak, especially about myself. However,  recently words like sad, heartbroken, overwhelmed and lost ….were following my ‘I am’. I am so grateful that she understood that even in this season of grief, I am still accountable for the words I speak as these words are constantly shaping my own reality.

So today…

I am truly grateful

I am filled with the awareness that only goodness surrounds me

I am comforted to know that people care

I am constantly reminded that we need each more than we care to admit….

Yet on the flip side of all this, in this season I have come to the realization that I know nothing……

I am filled with power yet in some situations powerless

I possess unremarkable strength, yet weak

I am the smile, the frown, positivity, negativity all combine

I am the friend that cares

So it’s with utmost gratitude that I receive this reminder from the Universe that a friend out there is thinking and caring about me enough to remind me who I am…..


To all of you beautiful people that reached out to our family during this season of grief….

I am…..

Great because of you…
