I am so happy you are here! Have I told you lately that I love you? I am 100% positive that what the world needs now is love, sweet love.
Are You Willing to Lend a Hand?
Hurt people hurt people. Are we loving and caring for each other like we need to be? Like we are supposed to be? What if we helped parents be better parents, made mental health our priority and accessible, and made supporting and loving each other most important!
We have become so disconnected we have lost our “villages”, those support systems that help us when we are lost …support us day to day…. You can only handle stress for so long. We can all use a hand.
My Village, My Story
Personal note. It has always been a bit bumpy for my family. Often we have felt hopeless, overwhelmed, and out of control. What would I ever have done without my village?
This is how our friends and families have been our village.
- they came along beside us when we were too tired
- when we had no hope left, they encouraged and supported us
- they helped us find professionals who still work with us, teach us, and listen to us.
People have no idea how completely exhausting mental illness can be. We have been the beneficiaries of a tremendous support system, “our village”.
Like a teacher who would show up at our house to help us get our son to school, someone who opened their home when our son needed to be hospitalized in another state, friends who took CPR so they could watch one of our babies born with a heart condition, friends who collected money for us when we had none, countless meals that have arrived at our home, the list is long!
Be the Pebble in the Pond; Start A Ripple Effect of Love
Thankfully, I learned showing support doesn’t have to be a big overture. Noticing each other and making each other feel loved and valuable can be easy….. we just have to do it…… say it.
Please join me in filling this world with a bit of love! Use these little tags to attach to anything … flowers from your yard, a baked treat, or just slip the tag where they will find it.
