Per my last post; I’m done school. Hurrah! And for better or worse, all of my new-found ‘free time’ is giving me quite a bit of room to think. Most recently, I unearthed a very important nugget: It’s time to give credit where credit is due.
I would not be where I am, and who I am, without the love and support of my husband, my family, and my friends.
There is the old phrase “No man is an island“. And not to be overlooked, the famous song from the Beetles “With a little help from my friends“. Whichever adage you prefer, the thought process is the same: our lives are richer because of those in them, and we are stronger because of those around us.
I’m not disputing the value of believing in yourself, or the reality that we as individuals can often accomplish much more than we thought possible. But for me, there is no greater truth than that which points to the special people in my life as my true source of strength.
To those people:
You are my rock.
You are the joy in my days and my light when things are dark.
You are what props me up when I’m falling over.
You are my gentle reminder to keep on keepin’ on.
You are the single set of Footprints in the sand when times are unbearable.
You are the reasons I am; You are the reasons I can.
Thank you all so much. My words don’t truly express my gratitude or my acknowledgement of everything you do for me, but they are the only way I know how to give credit where credit is due.
