Words of Wisdom

I think it’s easy to forget that life is a 🎁 gift. We get wrapped up in our daily routines, plugging along like we have all the ⏰ time in the world. We forget about all of the quiet blessings in life. The days run together in a blur of work, errands, chores, and appointments. We fit in fun along with the responsibilities, maybe even vacations when the πŸ“† calendar allows. Time is on our side, right? The truth is that we don’t know what each day will bring. Lives can get flipped πŸ”ƒ upside down in an instant.

Then what? Those sometimes mundane, sometimes chaotic routines that we often complain about seem pretty 😍 awesome. People in our lives turn into heroes. Time turns β˜€οΈ golden. What seemed like big things turn small.

I have people in my life who are swimming upstream right now. Illness. Job loss. Death. Difficult family situations. Maybe you do, too. Perhaps it’s you. When I need a lift, I turn to words. They offer πŸ€— comfort and πŸ€” wisdom when I find myself searching. So, that’s why I wanted to offer some words of πŸ’« encouragement for anyone who may need a little hope.
