I Am

Happy throwback Thursday to one of my favorite blog posts and one I needed to hear this week.

I AM:

IAM.words_

I am strong. I am worthy. I am respected. I am loved. I am capable. I am.

Do you ever wake up in the morning and wonder how your day will go? Will something good happen? Something bad? Will you help someone on the street or be hurt by a friend?

It is only early afternoon and my morning has consisted of me sitting in the car for almost 4 hours. I’m waiting on my mom in the doctor’s office. A few weeks ago, she had her annual mammogram and was called back to the office for more tests. More tests. Those words scare the living daylights out of me. Knowing my family’s history with cancer, the phrase “more tests” often means there is something we need to worry about and that there will more waiting for test results.

As I sit here, typing this post and reflecting on the morning, I am constantly drawn back to my “I Am” motto above and how those words keep me going. Yes, the phrase “I Am” is the motto for the Invictus Game, created by Prince Harry, but they have also special meaning to me. Those two words paired with another give me the strength I need to take on the day. I am loved. I am worthy. I am strong. I am.

Whenever I begin to worry, I just repeat my motto and remember I can do this. If my mom does have breast cancer (and hopefully, she won’t), my family will battle it like we do any challenge – together. If you’ve been following along to the blog, you can easily tell that my life is in a whirlwind right now. However, my “I Am” motto helps me keep my balance. What is yours?

Be a Snowflake

At various times today, I’ve found myself staring out the window and watching snow fall from the sky. All day snow has fallen here in North Carolina and we are now up to about four plus inches. I can’t help, but think how peaceful, calm, and quiet the world seems right now. Also, there is something about a winter snow that brings out the 6-year-old in all of us and just makes you, well, happy.

From the texture, the coldness, and the beauty of it, snow just amazes me. One thing that is especially wonderful is the uniqueness of snowflakes. We can’t tell with the naked eye, but every single flake that falls from the sky is carefully created with its own design. No two snowflakes are identical.

Sound familiar?

No two humans are identical either. Every one of us were designed in our own special way. There is no one like you and that is a true sign of God’s love. Be proud of who you are, your personality, your style, etc. Everything about you is special and should be celebrated!

One time I saw a video on Facebook that showed snowflakes close up. The variety of the designs were beautiful; just like the variety of human beings in this world. Be a snowflake and be who God meant for you to be.
