Retrieving the mail from the mailbox, three colorful envelopes peeked out from amongst the usual ads and bills - an unusual sight, for sure. Taking a moment out of my already hectic and stressful day, I sat, a smile creeping across my face as I spied the return address on each envelope. Each card provided just what my heart needed that day, and serve as a reminder that I'm cared for, valued, and loved. How easily I've lost sight of that over the past week, anxiety clouding my outlook and encouraging self-doubt. Dawn brought light into my day, reminding me to take in the warmth of friendship, focus on finding balance, and concentrate on getting through life's trials with grace. I am forever thankful to her for being such a kind, thoughtful friend, and to God for weaving her into the tapestry of my life.
