You are what matters


You are the difference. You are what matters. They need you.

You are what gives them eyes to see. You are the voice they hear in their minds when they are seeking approval.

You are what they need.  No accomplishment, no activity, no team, no achievement will fill it.  Nothing, nothing, will fill that space but God. But God put you in it.

The girls have been sick for days. We all have. This evening, Matt took us all on a drive through the mountain and snow. Some air and light. We listened to The Christmas Carol. Scrooge’s chilly voice and snow draped trees surrounded us. We were coughing, we were in pajamas. But we were together. It was enough. It was us.

And I hope forever, it will be us.

    I’m so sorry to hear you’ve all been sick, Ann. So tough this time of year. Your family drive through the snow sounded like wonderfully good medicine for the body and spirit.

    Wishing you all well very soon!

    Merry Christmas!

    Oh my sweet friend, how I lived through those days, and what an excellent tonic to get out in the fresh air and BREATHE…
    Christmas is here…it’s magic, you are living it, in sheltering and nurturing your little ones even when you are fighting this illness yourself.

    May you continue to improve and be about ALL that makes your heart filled. Love you much!

    Merry Christmas!
