I know that on days like today make you feel like giving up.
There’s so much to breathe for, live for, fight for, smile for.
Warm sunshine kissing your skin on long, lazy days of summer.
Flying kites and sharing popsicles.
Fields blooming with your favorite wildflowers.
Ice cream cones with a good friend who asks “How are you?” and means it.
Toddlers in floaties squealing with joy as they jump into cool blue water.
Flip flops and swimsuits with a backdrop of fluffy white clouds in a summertime sky.
Watermelon juice dribbling down innocent faces and sweet tea in mason jars.
Your favorite feel-good song piping through speakers of an old radio.
Dancing in the rain like nobody’s watching…
Followed by curling up in bed with a really good book to wait out the storm.
Long walks down a country road with a faithful old dog by your side.
Sipping fresh squeezed lemonade on the front porch swing while
Watching the fireflies blink hello in the soft glow of evening.
The smell of BBQ on the grill and a delicious meal shared with those you love most.
A campfire and s’mores while watching the firelight flick across familiar faces.
Staring up at the stars and taking in the majesty of it all.
Sunday morning worship when you know God showed up just to give you a bear hug.
I know you are a warrior in the disguise of a tired woman. I know you remember being a girl who had dreams and plans and goals and passion. She’s still in there and I still see her. Press in, press on, and welcome tomorrow with renewed hope. You are more than enough. <3
