Bright & Shiny

Not going to lie here... this has been a difficult month... one daughter in the hospital since before Thanksgiving and now looking at a kidney removal, time of the year when we've lost loved ones and I have found myself overwhelmed by sadness and grief a lot of the time. 
BUT...
This morning I drove through Dutch Bros coffee to get lil a drink and this bright and shiny girl just bubbled life and joy out like crazy! It made me snap out of it, get out of my own head and realize life is still amazing even when we are engulfed with the hard circumstances it can present. There are others around hat need that smile, that touch on the shoulder, a word of encouragement...
When I left that window with coffee in tow, I was smiling!
So to the Dutch Bros girl... thank you for uplifting my spirit and shaking me out of myself....
So I pass that sparkle, that glimmer of hope, that touch of joy, that encouragement that you can... and it will get better...

Today I will be that bright shiny bit of life to those I see...intentionally

be alive, fit & free,

Vickie
