Who's that Girl?


Everyone Has Something

Writing as a form of expression helps people heal.  It can bring you closer to someone you know and  it can help you realize that things you experience are often experienced by others.  I find that through writing and sharing with you, I heal.  I recently read a blog post by Jason Seiden that said, “everyone has something….”.  That something is something difficult they are dealing with.  It could be a work issue, a health issue or even a death.

I have several close friends who have recently had to face the loss of a loved one or dear friend.  To them, I send my condolences and my offer of prayers.  By focusing on the positive impact they have had on us, we can go on.  I too have lost a loved one in the last week.  My aunt, Ruth Schlater Sterling.  She left us far too early.  Aunt Ruth was a tough, no-nonsense woman.  She taught me how to care for animals, how to appreciate antiques and maybe most importantly…..how to shave my legs!  I’ll never forget her.

In the grand scheme of things, only our personal relationships are important.  

If you have lost a loved one or just want to publicly show appreciation for someone, please feel free to do that in the comments today.  I’d love to hear about the people that are special to you.
