FINALLY FRIDAY

I am having a hard time to find the words to write about this week but I am going to try my best anyway….

To start on a good note.. this week was birthday and although I get seriously homesick and usually don’t enjoy my birthday away from home much anymore, it was an INCREDIBLE day.

Not because I went above and beyond for a crazy party or got some amazing present but because during the chaos and sadness that has been unfolding this week, I got a day to be reminded of the unbelievable amount of LOVE in my life.

Text after text, facebook post after facebook post, birthday calls with my family, surprise flowers from my brother and spending a gorgeous evening at a Greek tapas restaurant with my love.

I honestly couldn’t be more blessed to have such amazing friends and family.  I am so thankful for their love, generosity, their safety, health and happiness.

Now onto the crazy world that we live in.

I have no words that haven’t already  been said about what is happening in Boston.  It truly makes me so sad that we can no longer trust in the people around us to respect human life.

A quote from my favorite book, The Shack, keeps coming back to me so I thought I would share. (ps, if you haven’t read this book, I would highly suggest it)

“Evil is a word we use to describe the absence of Good, just as we use the word darkness to describe the absence of Light or death to describe the absence of Life. Both evil and darkness can only be understood in relation to Light and Good; they do not have any actual existence. “- The Shack 

This quote keeps coming to me because although we seem to be in some serious dark times right now, there is still light if  you choose to look around. ..

People reaching out and helping each other, supporting each other and coming together to defeat what seems to be an endless roll of black clouds.

No matter how dark things may become, I hope people remember to look around for the light. Even if it is the smallest of glimmers, it is there and exists, and will help lead us in the right direction.

In honor of the victims this week, my friend Emily and I, put on our race shirts and went to spin class and rode our butts off !

My prayers and thoughts are with Boston.

So I thought my FINALLY FRIDAY would be in accordance.

My wish for everyone this weekend is to go out with your friends, your family and your significant other and say I love you, say I am thankful for you, embrace each other and LAUGH.  Feel alive for those who can’t…
