Just wanted to stop by today and share a bouquet of Sunflowers that I picked and took to my dear friend, Shirley, yesterday. I am so very thankful that Shirley has returned to work after being off for a while due to some heath problems. She is my bright spot at work and I have missed her so much. When I found out she was back to work, I knew I needed to take her some of my Sunnies. When I first transferred up to Pain Management, Shirley received me with open arms. She is always so happy to see me and it just makes me feel good.
A person shows their true self by how much they need other people.
I saw this wonderful quote recently and it brought to mind Shirley and my need for her love and acceptance that very first day on the job. I soon found out that Shirley also needed me! We need each other. I never have wondered the "whys" of where I landed where I did. I know why I am there! God brought Shirley and I together and I can not wait to see what Blessings he has in store for us.
Every time we share with another human being, we add something to our spiritual bank account, allowing us to draw on it when extra demands are made upon our courage. In the measure in which we share our burdens, they become lighter.
Just as I am thankful for Shirley, I am thankful for each of the friends I have met on my Journey here at Spark People. You give and give and give and I am inspired to give back. What comes around will go around! Thank you all for the fuel that feeds my fire today. I just hope I can give back as much as I have received as I do believe that it is in the giving that I am able to fully receive.
God Bless us Everyone.
