Recieved a surprise package in the mail today! Thank you @westlindsay you are too sweet of a human!
The theme was "Feeling blue because I miss you". I had an off day and have been working through some person things as of late. To receive such a sweet "just because" package from a friend brightened my whole day.
Don't forget to tell those you care about them that you are thinking of them. You may just turn their whole day around 😁
As I inch closer to my 40th birthday I want to highlight some of the people who have helped me get here. This is my friend Angela she has been one of my greatest gifts since moving back home. We have laughed so hard we have both had to run to the bathroom or have accidentally shot wine out of our noses. She helped me pack, move, unpack, and decorate 👈🏽 now that’s a good friend. She loves my kids like her own and encourages me to cherish my children as I watch her cherish hers. We are doing life together and encouraging one another in those rough and dark places. I am looking forward to more laughs and more adventures with her. Thank you for loving me well friend. By the way - my selfies need some serious help but I actually love how this one turned out. I see love and light in this.
It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor,
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Many of us grew up listening to Mr. Roger’s neighborhood song! Sweet and innocent.. then we grow up!! It is not always beautiful in the neighborhood and for various reason some may not want a certain type of “neighbor.” Our new friend, James, is in our neighborhood. He wants to be our neighbor but for his struggles with life it is not easy!
On our second visit with him he invited us into his “home.“ His tent was left behind from a previous homeless person. This tent has seen it’s day. The inside is taped up with duct tape to keep the rain out. The tent poles are bent from going through rough weather. He is sleeping on two thrown out chair cushions. These tents are not made to live in long term!
We have to take these relationships slowly. There is a reason a person lives out in the woods in these conditions by themselves. So when a couple of strangers come into your space it can be overwhelming, especially if you are already struggling with trust issues (majority of our homeless struggle with that). Today we left him with supplies that will get him through the week and this upcoming cold weather. We discussed with him about setting up a new encampment and a better suited tent for him. We also discussed getting him to the area where resources are set up for him. Needless to say he was once again overcome with emotion. It always leaves us speechless when we see our friends so lost for words and tears streaming down their face because someone showed them a simple act of kindness!! What have they seen in their life? What pain have they endured in their life that kindness is so overwhelming to them?
We may learn the answer in time but for now he know “YOU ARE IMPORTANT”
Read this verse again this morning l.
I’ve read it many times in my Bible reading, often people use it in context of marriage.
But these famous verses are referring to relationships in general, and their importance.
We were made for relationships!
For community, camaraderie.
I was thinking about it yesterday as I was posting in my accountability/challenge group, receiving encouragement and ideas from the other ladies. Ladies who are crushing their health and fitness goals, who are pushing each other and uplifting each other in their highs and lows. Who are cheering each other on towards their finish lines.
It’s proven that these people are more likely to accomplish their goals when they work with these groups, with a Coach.
Looking back to the start of my journey over 5 years ago, I lost my most weight successfully when I was part of a thriving team that was like minded.
This is what “two are better then one” looks like... or ninety fierce woman kicking butt;)
We pull each other up when we fall.
I FLIPPING LOVE THESE GROUPS!!! If you’d like to be apart of my next challenge group drop me a 🙋🏻♀️ below.
Let’s talk! Let’s talk about your goals and find you a plan of action that’ll accommodate your lifestyle.And let’s kick butt together. Because guess what, I’m in the same boat😬
And because two is better then one:)
I’m so sad, but it’s time... 😭 I have to say goodbye to all your beautiful faces! Thanks for putting a smile on my face every time I walked by through December and January... Love to you all! XOXO 💋 #procrastinator#ilovechristmas
Thank you to all my friends who are there for me, support me, and cheer for me! Today I had lunch with an amazing friend who I don’t get to see as often as I’d like. We were able to catch up, share dreams, and laugh a lot! She let me know that a couple quotes I had posted had inspired her to dream bigger, to chase her goals! I ❤️ lifting others up and am so grateful to friends like Darlene who are blessings in my life! #friendship#weriseupbyliftingothers#grateful#loyalty
•Dedica ad un' anima pura 💕
Tu, nella tua unicità, migliori il mio umore.
Tu che sei esattamente il mio opposto, e nonostante ciò, i nostri caratteri si incastrano perfettamente portando avanti un' amicizia duratura e profonda. Ci siamo trovate, poi perse e ritrovate lungo questi anni. Ma non ci siamo mai smesse di volerci bene , sostenerci e aiutarci quando fosse stato necessario.
Sei leale , sincera , testarda , sfacciata il giusto, sempre di corsa e incredibilmente brillante (delle volte , non farci l' abitudine 😂) , sei tantissime cose che andrebbero sempre apprezzate , capite e gestite nella giusta maniera. Siamo cresciute e divenute donne ma questo non toglie che siamo e resteremo sempre quelle due bimbe che giocavano in continuazione insieme felici e spensierate, che nonostante le diversità caratteriali andavano estremamente d'accordo.👭 Dunque Lisa del mio cuore, sappi che sei un pezzo della mia infanzia e parte integrante della mia vita presente e futura.
La tua pigrona per eccellenza 😚
