Happy Friday

It's Friday and I'm thankful and blessed to partake it.

Within the past week I have had two friends that have been diagnosed with cancer; along with having friends that are struggling with addiction, depression, and financial hardship. I know that we all know of someone that is struggling with something in their life, but if it's not our personal struggle we sometimes forget that life can be difficult for others. Life doesn't always turn out to be the journey that we have imagined, so it's understandable that it's difficult to be thankful at times. But we need to cherish each day that we're given regardless of what we're walking through - open your eyes and your heart to the little miracles that we're blessed with each day.

It took me years to get there, but even on my worst days I'm thankful for it. I only get one chance at  life and I'm going to live it by really living. For me that requires taking chances, having no regrets, sharing my story in hopes of inspiring someone, and being there for those that need me. I'm a dreamer, a doer, and someone that cares. I'm living life with a full heart.
On that note, have a happy Friday and remember that this is the day that the Lord has made. Be thankful, feel blessed, and live life to it's fullest.

Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
