This girl has a HUGE heart! When Sam called me to reschedule her session, I was blown away (in a wonderful way) with what caused the change. She was chosen from a small, nay, TINY group of young peeps to work at the Special Olympics. Sam was so excited about this opportunity and I jumped up and down with her :) She is a talented athlete who has a heart for the mentally and physically challenged. The compassion in her voice and face as she described her trip soon led to my eyes leaking...Did I mention that she flippin' plays the cello like no one's business too?!?!
I seriously had to check myself after meeting this senior. What am I doing for others? What can I do to make a difference? Sometimes I get so caught up in myself, whining about how "busy" I am...I'm just being honest here folks. If I would just take the time to do something for someone else...giving a sad child a word of encouragement...giving an elderly person a visit to the park...giving the guy with the sign on the corner some change WITHOUT judging what he will do with it...If I would just GIVE. Even if it's just my time, I know I would start to realize how not-so-bad I have it.
Thank you Sam! Your example has sweetly reminded me about what truly matters...for that I sincerely am ever so thankful!
The symbol on the left is what Sam wants tattooed someday :)
So I stumbled across this sign...yea, flippin' hilarious!
