What is important to you?
If you don’t know the answer look at your bank account, schedule, and relationships. Listen to what you say to yourself and others.
The answer will jump off the page at you.
What do you want to be important to you?
- Are they the same?
- Far apart?
Incredible grief and incredible joy coexist in my heart today.
I am grieving the loss of a precious life that should be, but is not. My auntie heart has been shattered into a million pieces and it will not go back together the same. A perfectly formed little boy who was anticipated, prayed for, and wanted more than anything in this world suddenly and inexplicably died days before he was due to make his entrance into the world.
Pain brings clarity.
Now is the time to live, love, and forgive.
Living without regret isn’t reckless. It is in fact the most purposeful thing you will ever do.
You have to pre-decide what you want and then go after it with your whole heart. It is too late when opportunity arises to prepare for what is at hand.
Invest in people and cultivate love, joy, passion, and purpose.
Build something that lasts, no matter what storms come your way.
In the midst of our sorrow, I look around and see a fabric of love, family, hope, and faith that refuses to be unwoven. The grateful heart and peace that my sister and brother have is not an accident. They decided to be amazing long before something horrific happened to them. They stand firmly on the rock despite the waves of grief, pain, and sorrow which crash all around them and threaten to wash them away.
Learn to be amazing before the storm hits.
Simon, your Auntie Donloree loves you with a white hot love that death cannot extinguish.
You are a miracle in every way and your brief time on earth has been purpose filled. You have forever changed the hundreds of lives that you touched in the nine months you grew to perfection inside your sweet mommy.
My beautiful Simon’s name means “listen or to be heard”.
What is your purpose?
Listen and hear what you must do on this earth and then execute it without turning to the left or right. Be the one thing that you were created to be. Decide to be amazing and stand on the rock where storms still come but will not wash you away.
