why it is not the worst thing in the world to be needed

For the days when you need a reminder of the strength of you.

For the days when you need to remember the beauty of being needed.

For the days when you need perspective on the being overwhelmed.

This is your reminder.

The strength of parents.

The strength of loving. Of putting life as you know it on the wire. And still living with hope and beauty and joy and love and the willingness to see YOU and YOUR FRIENDS and ALL OF US with eyes of patience and love and not competitiveness and jealousy.

Life is a risk when we live awake.

Life is a risk when we love more.

Don’t waste your days wondering if you measure up.

Waste your days loving you, loving your kids and loving the gift of your today.

    I love the idea of God giving us grace for today. A week, a month… that’s too far out, but we can have enough grace to get through today. That is a huge blessing. Thanks for sharing this video.
