DAY 7: A PICTURE OF SOMEONE/SOMETHING THAT HAS THE BIGGEST IMPACT ON YOU
I’m going to go a few different ways with this…Hang on for the ride…
First and foremost:
Besides Eric practically threatening me to choose him, I would’ve anyway. Now besides the super mushy stuff I could say about why he has the biggest impact on me, I’m going to go with the less obvious and hopefully a bit less mushy.
Eric pushes me to be a better person. He doesn’t always tell me what I want to hear – he tells me the truth. There are times the truth hurts, but at times it’s necessary. Eric entered my life at a very crucial time. I could’ve gone down a much worse road had he not entered my life. Eric is honestly my lifeline and he is what gives my life direction.
Okay, how can children NOT have an impact on you? Seriously. Each one of my children has taught me something about myself not previously known. They are examples of virtures I need to work harder on possessing. They’ve taught me that all kids need to be treated differently and they each have special needs. There is nothing better than hearing a very innocent, but so very true, “I Love You.”
NieNie is a plane crash survivor and mother. She is such an example of looking not on the outside but looking on the inside. And no, I don’t know her personally, but how amazing would it be to know someone that can see the positive side of things almost all of the time?
There are so many emotions I have on this subject. It is really hard for me to see this picture or to see videos depicting his death. I cry all the time! I am thankful for such a person that would take on the sins of EVERY single person on this earth and do it lovingly.
