Tag: when times are tough
Sometimes it’s just those words of “Thank You” that you say to some one who has been so dear and kind, in such a gentle way, that makes a difference in their life.
Well, this Christmas, I want to say ” Thank You” to someone very dear to me – someone who has helped me in more ways than one. We all have that person in our life, don’t we? When times seem to be so hard and scary, they find a way to lift our spirits.
The integrity as a man that he is; with his wonderful spiritual faith that he carry’s in his heart. It is a blessing to have him as a dear friend and partner. I can honestly say that he means well when he tries to help me see things in a positive way.
And it all starts with me if I want to make a difference and am willing to make a change. It starts with you also – we have to be willing to change. We cannot want to want to change – we have to be willing to make a change.
I sometimes find it hard to understand, or maybe I am just so stubborn. I guess I can say that I am just afraid that maybe I will not succeed. Do you have the same problem? It is easy to be afraid, and easier not to trust.
Yet, I have to trust the only person who has stood right by my side and believe it when he says: “Get out there and Fight!”
Through my trials and tribulations and unexpected heartfelt surprises, I have to trust in God – that his plan is for a reason and is one that will get us through our journey. It is the same with all of us, we have to Trust God.
This is something that Michael has shared with me, and I believe that to be true. If you ever find a penny – especially when times are tough – Please read what is written on it: “IN GOD WE TRUST”. It is a reminder to Trust Him no matter what your situation is. Please Stop, take the time to hold the penny and say: “Okay God, I trust you!” IT is a small reminder of great big deal. Trust me on this, when things are tough – God will put a penny in your path to remind you to Trust Him! We find pennies all the time and everywhere.
So when times are tough – I must continue to be that women that I have always been: “A women of Faith.” I must make that difference for myself, and those that I love, and to Build the Bridge that will lead us to the Top. But i, nor we, can do it by ourselves.
Michael I want to say “Thank You” for all that you have done and that I am grateful from the bottom of my heart. I was blessed when God brought a wonderful person like you into my life. I knew that He would make us partners to share the dreams that once were cloudy to me. I was lost. And, I can still remember when I said to myself: That is a man of integrity. You have lifted me up and offered so much, but most of all you have changed my life to be better at what I must do to be a better person. I want to say “Thank You” for being tough with me and in helping me to be strong and not give up on a dream that means the world to me. God has molded you to be the man he wants you to be, and is why he brought you into my life.
You came and transformed something that I believed in and held on to for so long and gave it life and laughter and gave me the strength to build it better. It’s because of you that I believe that God makes the Impossible – Possible. I can only guess it’s the “Faith” that He saw in both of us. Thank You for wiping my tears of sadness and for giving me tears of joy. I could never repay you for all the help you have given me, but I can stand up tomorrow and say I am ready to fight the battle that I have struggled with today. If God were to take me tonight to live in his kingdom, I would thank him for allowing me to have been a part of yours.
“Thank You Michael – from the bottom of my heart!” May God Bless you and your family this Christmas and give you the gifts that you deserve. He has already given me the greatest gift of all, and that gift was when you became my Best friend and partner.
Now – back to you out there in cyberspace, our guests and friends – you either have this person in your life or you are this person in someones life. If you have someone who has been there for you and stood by you in rough times as well as the good – then stop and say “Thank You!” If you are a person that keeps people on track, inspires, encourages or is even tough on them when they need it – then I will say: “Thank you!” It means more than you know. We all need help, encouragement, empowerment and friends…Let us give thanks or the gift of ourselves to others this Holiday Season.
It only takes one!* One small act of kindness, one kind word, one right move - But that is another Christmas article.
I share this with the world, because to me it is very important to share with that special someone, how much you appreciate them. It is important to know that words cannot always express our gratitude – but as he will say: “Actions go a lot further.” Gratitude is an action! Words fall short at times – but Thank you can be said and done in so many ways and to so many people….
So I say to you: Now it is your turn to go into the world and say thank you to someone who has touched you or go out and touch someone that needs to have their spirit uplifted! May God Bless you all!
