Day 21: Today I am thankful for people who tell you things. I think people think nice things about others all the time. I don't think that they always tell people those good thoughts. I believe that the world needs to hear all of the positive things that are out there. To keep them inside does not really do anything.
Today a lady stopped by work with her precious tow headed 2 year old. The little ones curls....on my lord.....amazing! I used to supervise the woman a long time ago. She was one of those needy people that always had static going on in her life. She always made me tired. So, when she came by today, I was not exactly thrilled to see her. I was sure that there was some other drama playing out in her life that she wanted some help with.
Today she looked at me and said *I wanted to stop by and tell you that I have such a great amazing life now! I think about you each and every day. You did not know it then but, you saved my life. You yelled at me and kept on pushing me and that was why I made it. If you had not cared, you would have not pushed. I am alive and my child is alive today because of you and I thought that you needed to know that today.*.
I never had a clue.
I cried. Oh my God I cried.
My last few weeks have been so rough. I have lost my best friend...someone that I love deeply. I have felt so lost and so rough. I believed that nothing that I do/did ever mattered. Then this woman, someone that I have not seen in 2 years, feels the need to stop by and tell me those words today. She is a busy person. She has a 2 year old to keep up with. But she made time to stop and tell me something that I clung to.
So today, I am thankful for the people that take 2 minutes to lift you up with their words.
I am so thankful
