While I’m out taking a break and healing from surgery, some of my favorite bloggers and bestest of friends have kindly agreed to help out with an LCMF blog series:
This series will hopefully answer some of your most frequently asked questions about “what can I do?” for someone who might be needing your help or support.
2) When I first met my husband we mutually noted that we weren’t each other’s type. We were quite different, but we quickly became great friends. After several months of hanging out, his feelings for me progressed. I could tell that he wanted more, but the idea made me a bit nervous because I wasn’t sure how I felt about the whole thing.
One night he walked me to my door and started to address the subject that I had been avoiding. He frankly told me that he wanted more and that he thought our relationship could really go somewhere. He said he knew I wasn’t sure, but he told me that he wasn’t going anywhere. He would wait until I sorted things out. He gave me a kiss on the cheek and drove off. Wow. I loved his confidence in himself and in me and it wasn’t long until I realized I felt the same way he did.
He continues to believe in me, supporting me in my blogging and anything else I take part in. I am so lucky to have him.
So, when I know someone in my life is struggling I think one of the most important things I can do is to believe in them and make that belief known. When I was in labor I never wanted my husband to say “You’re okay.” I wanted him to say “You can do this.” I believe we have the capacity to handle the trials that come our way, but sometimes we need a friend to remind us of that.
Believing in each other helps us to rise to our potential and become the person we want to be.
Thank you Cheri. What an inspiring and different way to look at service. It might mean THE WORLD to someone. I’ve had several teachers that made me feel that way. I want to try and be more supportive and uplifting to the people I am around.
Please visit Cheri at her amazing blog: I Am Momma. (We first bonded over the nastiness of Dino Chicken Nuggets. And made a pact not to eat them. Plus, she still owes me a duet. She’s an AMAZING talent!)
