note of wonder

Good evening,

I am so happy to share the last of this very short “chapter on appreciation” posts. Although, friendship may come and go. I am grateful for the learning experience and respecting what friendship truly is. The understanding of how important relationships work. I’m not stating a relationship is defined by dating, but the value of how a relationship is with our family and our friendships. I have learned, recently; you should never be defined by who you are with, but who you are as a person. How you treat others and, most importantly, yourself.

“We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken.” |Fyodor Dostoevsky|

my dear

Good evening! There are moments I am so grateful for amazing people in my life. Especially those I can talk to whenever I am able to. These amazing people in my life deserves to be applauded and they deserve many warm, long and tight hugs. 🙂

I’m going to share this little note which I wrote almost a year ago.

[Written on 4.21.2015]
When you are with me…
Holding me tight during times of trouble.
That’s when I knew you are home to me.



“Grief is as common as your hand; we all experience it at some point. But it’s also as specific as a fingerprint. We all feel it differently. It comes in waves, hitting you at unexpected places. The things you expect to trigger it often don’t, but other little things that seem to have nothing to do with anything suddenly come along and knock you flat out.

It heightens some emotions and neutralizes others. It’s as if the heart can’t figure out how to respond appropriately to anything anymore. Much like a child that’s very tired, that laughs and then cries uncontrollably.

Grief is a wild and woolly monster. At times helpful, at times dangerous.
But always, always unpredictable.”

One of my dearest friends texted me this quote last evening. I resonate with the words so much. Please keep my family in your prayers.


an eager individual

 “I hope you find someone who is brave enough to enter your storm, and respects you enough to love the size of your waves. I hope you find someone who will relish the calm you can have, and who is eager to set sail on the expanse of your mind. I hope you find someone that can’t escape the love they have for you, because now they have you in their very blood, always reminding them that you are the only sea worth exploring.”

tender whisper of love

These upcoming weeks will be so hectic and exhilarating. Prayers of a smooth transition, an optimistic outlook, and a realistic approach as to what this new chapter will be. A good balance with it all, really. This song has certainly resonated with me over the weekend. 
As I close my eyes… “I’ve heard the tender whisper of love in the dead of night. You tell me that you’re pleased and that I’m never alone.”

Letter Three

A Wednesday evening I had one of those instances where I just had a “light bulb” moment. A reflective moment. A moment where I just go “OH. I can see a little more clearly now.” In fact, a moment which I know my worth is so, SO much brighter from yesterday and even more brighter tomorrow because of God’s rich mercy He has given to me. My mind was quite preoccupied with my thoughts, but still letting my ears allow the Lord’s thoughts come in, too.
