Strength....... such a powerful word..... and so many ways to interpret:

The strength of a thousand men... the strength to fight a battle..... the strength to get through work.... the strength to pass up dessert.... the strength to stand alone.... the strength to get out of bed....

Happens all the time.... daily in fact. Some things more than others. Some TO more than others. Cause and effect can determine how much strength you need.

And how about the vulnerable strength..... are you strong enough to lean on someone.... are you strong enough to ask for help..... are you strong enough to cry.... are you strong enough to say you don't want to be alone....

Then do you have the strength to share? Are you strong enough to be there for someone. Are you strong enough to hold someone's hand..... are you strong enough to just listen....


Some days you need more and some days you need to give more.... one little thing... one little thing you may say or do for someone can change their entire day for the better and you don't even know it happened. Your strength.... yours.... is amazing. Share it. Take it. Stand up strong....

You hold on to me and I will hold on to you....

I have been so fortunate to have met each and every one of you. You are all my strength as I hope I am for you....

    Oh, sweetheart. You say so many wise things that so many others never realize. No matter what, you have many blessings: your job, your daughter, and your health. All of us are here for you through anything, and we're not going anywhere. You hang onto me, now it's my turn to hang onto you. You will always have me to help give you strength if you can be strong enough to ask. You will get through this. You are strong enough. Have faith in yourself. We're all pulling for you.

    Our prayers are still with you, and we'll be waiting for your update on Friday regarding the matter most heavily on your mind. In the meantime, try to get some rest. Wring out your brain and let it air dry awhile....

    You are LOVED, and this, too, shall pass and once again reveal beautiful days ahead!
