I know 5 incredible women and I am humbled to be a part of this group of 6. They are funny, intelligent, loving, giving, insightful, creative, gorgeous, real, sassy and so many other things. They make me laugh, cry, feel loved and challenge me. I am incredibly thankful for them and know my life would be less full without their presence in it. One of the ladies had a wonderful word of wisdom one day ~ "Breathe". To remind us of that another gave us all lovely bracelets with that word inscribed upon it. Mine arrived yesterday with such perfect timing for what I've been dealing with.

It is upon my wrist and when I look at it it reminds me:

  • to just breathe
  • that I have friends that care for me deeply and though I cannot see them daily they are always in my corner and they really *know* me
  • of one of my favorite praise songs Breathe
  • of Psalm 150:6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
  • to center myself to focus on that which is within me
  • that when things seem out of control, when I seem out of control all I need to do is breathe
  • to be thankful for every breath that is given me and those that I love

  1. I am so glad you have such a wonderful group of friends! Life without friends would be very very dull.

    Keep breathing.. its a good way to reflect on Gods will for our life as well as the direction He wants us to take
