Sometimes it is the little things in life that mean so very, very much.
I like how Facebook will re-post memories with photos from the previous years. I just saw this one again of Michael when he came to visit 2 years ago. He’s visited again since then when we took him to Universal Studios in Orlando this past April. We took my daughter Mary there last year too where we also flew from Orlando up to Tennessee to see Keith Urban (second time for me lol). I love our vacations every summer! I think we’ll be flying down to Alabama next to visit with Eric and MJ in their newly built house. I’m curious to see what winter looks like there since we’re thinking of possibly moving down there and having a home built (we looked at houses the last time we went to visit).
Here’s Michael right before we were supposed to head out to play paintball. We ended up not going and going somewhere else. I can’t recall where though.
Anything that annoys you is “for” teaching you patience. Anyone who abandons you is “for” teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet. Anything that angers you is “for” teaching you forgiveness and compassion. Anything that has power over you is “for” teaching you how to take your power back. Anything you hate is “for” teaching you unconditional love. Anything you fear is “for” teaching you courage to overcome your fear. Anything you can’t control is “for” teaching you how to let go.
If one day you feel like crying.
Call me. I don’t promise to make you laugh,
But I can cry with you.
If one day you want to run away.
Call me. I don’t promise to to ask you
To stop, but I can run with you.
If one day you don’t want to listen.
Call me. I promise to be there for you,
And I promise to be very quiet.
If one day you call me, and there is
No answer. Come fast to see me.
Perhaps I need you.
