Caring for others is what makes this world such a beautiful place to live in! There are always negative things that can go on all around us, but fortunately we can choose to just work around them and focus our attention on the positive and encouraging times. God loves us and I have learned so much over the last year to not dwell on the negativity but to try and uplift others and be as positive as I can. Turn all that negativity into a positive passion.
Back in May, I was hospitalized for 7 days with at the beginning not really sure totally what was going on inside my body. It was very scary, dark times the first few days in the hospital by myself. I had an awesome friend that took time out of her busy schedule to sit by my beside for not one, not two, but THREE hours to console me, make me laugh and just be with me. Her presence being there with me was such a priceless moment. Then the very next day was my Birthday and this awesome friend made her presence once again into my hospital room with a priceless gift that I will never forget. She took the time and got several friends from this gracious blogging community to film videos of birthday shout-outs for ME. All for me. I was in tears when she was showing me. My heart was bursting the seams with just thankfulness.
See her video here on where she is explaining how she paid it forward from a friend doing the same while she was in the hospital room.
See how we can use what happens in our lives and pay it forward. This is what friendship is all about. Uplifting others, encouraging others and just plain paying it forward. When is the last time you helped out a friend in need? Let’s make a difference starting now!
I am truly thankful for all you did Sarah.
