It's been a long week. Actually it's been a long month, with more at times than I thought I could handle. Between loosing my brother and mourning him, my work, volunteering commitments, my health and my family I am definitely tired, and more emotionally tired than physically tired, but tired nonetheless.
I got home tonight, 14 hours after I left this morning and remembered I had no post today for the A-Z Challenge. Oh no, the letter L. I have not finished any art projects to post so I thought about what came to mind starting with the letter L. I immediately began singing "Lean On Me". What a great song.
I could have posted about the song, or about how important it is to have others to lean on. And how important it is to be the one they can lean on when necessary. Showing up for each other and supporting one another is important. We were not meant to do life alone. Along with supportive people around us, I think there is also something deep inside each one of us that keeps us going through thick and thin.
For me, it's LOVE.
I am there for my children regardless of what I am going through emotionally or physically,
because I love them.
I listen to a friend that needs to talk no matter how tired I am,
because I love her.
I go to my job when I want to just stay home in bed,
because I love what I do.
I volunteer although I may also be in need,
because I love my neighbors.
I pray and give thanks, even though I may be hurting,
because I love God.
I show up every day for the A-Z Challenge no matter what,
because I love this opportunity and this community.
True, unselfish love is one of the biggest things that keeps me going through all times, difficult and smooth.
What is it that motivates you to keep moving forward no matter what?
