Its been a while since I blogged but I hope what you are about to read about inspires you in some way!! Here it goes....
I've had a rough last week or 2! One of my Uncles passed away and he was the coolest...COOLEST literally. I will always remember his cool voicemail greeting, the fact that he thought I was thee flyest person ever...HA! so I will always leave the house as fly as can be even on my bad days lol, and most importantly his CONSISTENCY in attitude and having a heart of gold no matter the day, no matter the weather!
Consistent: Acting or done in the same way over time;;
It wasn't until this week in my life that I learned the true meaning of "Hard times will reveal true friends". . . Anyone can gossip with you, laugh with you, celebrate an accomplishment with you, but those that will catch you when you fall as well as celebrate you when you're up are those that you should keep around. Hearing that someone passed away on the news breaks my heart; & Hearing that one of my friend's loved ones passed away breaks my heart even more, because I know that they're hurting. When you genuinely love someone, you feel their pain. Now is there something that someone can do to take that pain away? Absolutely NOT! But to know that someone cares surely feels good!! A text message that says..."Hey are you ok?, I'm really praying for you!, I love you!, & Im here"!...MEANS EVERYTHING! Now...how many of those messages did I get..quite a few, but from a very very small group of people! Someone stopping what they're doing mid day to drive by to make sure I'm legit ok... thats truly appreciated. Thank you ALL for being consistent in my time of need! I love you & appreciate you! God has blatantly showed me who has my best interest at heart and my goodness does he answer prayers, because I constantly pray for my friends and ask him to constantly reveal who is true! It doesn't always have to be a death of a loved one, but we all as human beings will have our down days and you too will need a shoulder to lean on...Who will be that shoulder?
Life is too short for any type of negative energy....SO, be consistent with your love! Be consistent with your friendships! Laugh often preferably a few times a day lol. Go to Dairy Queen a few times a week! Don't complain, because it can always be worse! Most importantly......Tell those that you love that you love them everyday...I sure do!
