thirteen



she has taught me that
hiding under a bushel
is not an option.


i woke up this morning with a realization that sometimes God puts people in your life not when you need them the most, but for when you do. His gifts are there next to you when you need to just reach out in the night to pat them and be reassured of the okayness of it all.

it is funny how we are given the task of teaching and yet end up being the ones taught the very most.

Yes, He does doesn't He? Just when I feel like I want to quit He brings a kind word, a smile or a soft breeze from out of nowhere. I am feelin' you girl~
Aren't we blessed to have our daughters to remind us why we are here? GB~di

So very very true!

And even if you hide your light under a bushel, I can still see it. Diamonds are forever ;) and you are a diamond.
