Sometimes I feel enormously insignificant. Sometimes I feel so small that I feel like my thoughts, visions and dreams don’t matter. No matter how much I take on, or try to change in the world, it makes no difference. Everyone has these thoughts at least one time or another and I can guarantee that if one person shared with you how they saw you it would change your whole mindset. I log onto Facebook and see the following from a dear friend Susie Lukens: because you are wonderful and important to me.
Such a small but powerful phrase with so much meaning that just warmed my spirit. Even though I am one of 7 billion people in the world there is a least one person who thinks I am still just as important. Susie and I haven’t known each other since kindergarten and we are not beside each other every waking moment, but she is someone who I can call on and I know she will be right there no matter what. So thank you Susie, my Vice President for always being so loving and supportive.
It’s such a joy to have friends that you know will be around for a lifetime. Aristotle said: who would choose to live without friends even if they had every other good thing and I totally agree. My friends have been there for me when I was at my worst! I could never feel insignificant around them. I mean look at them!
Each of these people has been placed in my life for a reason. My wonderful friend Lila Miller told me that I am an extraordinary woman and to never forget it! “Never let yourself stop you from reaching your dreams, because you have what it takes to make all of them come true.” My friends are my dreams that have come true! I am surrounded by people who will never think of me as small, insignificant or powerless.
I am enormously significant to them and they are enormously significant to me,
so let it be that we all are friends for eternity.
This is dedicated to anyone I have ever called friend especially Da Annex!
