Wishing Well

The other day I reached into my coat pocket and look what I found:
One time, my dad told me that every time we find a penny, it's a little reminder that God is thinking of us. Thanks Dad :)

I love when at the end of a day, you stick your face into a pillow with freshly washed sheets and get a whiff of heaven :)

I Love My Dad

Often these words get stuck in my head:
"I love little baby ducks, and good ol' pickup trucks, and tomatoes on the vine."
And then I think of my dad singing this song in my wonderful childhood years. And I always leave that memory with a smile.

How can we....

Love life when its painful, and it hurts, and you just want things to be happy, and whole, and good?

Because tomorrow is always a new day with great potential for good. And each moment has potential to be brighter than the last. The Lord will put the right people in our life when we need them the most. And there is always a way out of the sadness that tries so hard to surround us. It's just a matter of finding it.
And most of all, when it feels like you matter to no one in the world, sometimes not even yourself... you do. You matter. Who you are makes the biggest difference in the world. Regardless of what messages are being sent to you, from how many sources, not one life of those who know you would be the same without you. You are needed. You are wanted.
You matter.
