This was a post I shared in my “life challenge” group. It was a profound day given recent events. I wanted to share it with you.
I went to a funeral today where my friend’s husband was remembered.
He was cherished for the laughter he caused others to have, the love others felt when they were with him, and the legacy of positivity that was left behind him.
One of his friends paying tribute quoted Les Misérables. During one of the final scene of the movie, Victor Hugo says, “To love another person is to see the face of God.”
This friend said that his friendship made them closer to God (or your higher power) because his infectious smile made everyone happy, his positivity had a gravitational pull to everyone, and that his words were always about “GREAT” things. How daily life is great, how people are great, and how he made everything great.
His wife told me she spoke to someone recently about my engagement weekend and the happiness Rick and I had. She said it was “great.”
I’m humbled to say the very least.
I may not be great at posting over the last few months. I pulled back a bit to mend some things that were going on but I promise I’m trying. I hope you keep trying, too. The amount of hope I get from each of you is immeasurable.
I feel so much hope, love, and positivity when I see your pics and read your posts. Hope makes me feel so close to you all. It shows me the commonalities we all have and the possibilities for growth that we’re all so welcoming to.
Showing anyone the possibility of growth in challenging moments is showing a divine, undefinable force.
Hope shows me the face of God through my friends smiling faces, strong minds, and willing hearts.
Hope doesn’t float, it soars.
* Glittery, hope filled love from my girls.
