Our amazing community is hosting an evening of Yoga in honor of Steve this week. I can’t even express in words what this means to our family. Every week our friends amaze us with their love, support and generosity. Calling ourselves Lucky doesn’t even describe what we feel. LOVED is really more like it.
Steve is a very proud man, so letting them do this for us has been very hard for him to accept. But he’s realized that this is a way that all the people around us can help me, can take some sort of burden off of me. It’s also a way for him to see how much love we have around us.
I recently posted this on Facebook and I know not everyone that reads this site, is on Facebook so I wanted to repost it today because it’s how my heart is feeling again.
“GOD Places people in our lives for a reason. Take a look around you because they are all there for a reason. You may not know it yet, but you will someday. It may be for a simple reason or a more complex reason. Just appreciate them and love them and don’t take advantage of them. And the more people you have in your ‘circle of life’, is a reflection of the person you are. I had no idea until June, that I was surrounding myself with such amazing people, nor how much I loved them all. And every month since then, they find a way of reminding me that I’m not alone, and I never will be. I never expected to be telling our friends that I love them, but I do and I think we should do it more often.”
