“Let me encourage you to get up every day and focus on what you do have in life. Be thankful for the blessings of the little things, even when you don’t get what you expect.” Victoria Osteen
There is no hurt in the whole world that this incredible woman can’t get me through, my beautiful sister has stroked my hair and wiped my tears away more times than I care to remember. She has never turned me away or been too busy to hear me talk, she is my rock and a woman whose opinion matters most to me in the world. Believe me when I tell you there is something incredibly joyous about wrapping up super warm and walking to the local park for hot chocolate and good old chat and cry. I am yet to find a subject that I can’t talk to her about, and although through our teens we weren’t close as we have grown into our own women we have developed a wonderful bond and friendship.
Naturally, we can’t leave this little beauty out, god I hope she learns from all my mistakes, I am forever whispering to her that she will change the world with her strength and that she can do anything and everything she likes. And with a mother like hers, I have no doubt that she will accomplish the most magical of lives.
Never underestimate the power of fresh air, long walks and good old chat because these moments are where real happiness lies.
“The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.” Henry Ward Beecher
