Sometimes when you think you’ve reached rock bottom, you’re actually finding firm footing. When you feel stone-cold solid rock beneath your bare feet, curl your toes into it. Press hard. Wipe your tear-filled eyes, and look up. You may be surprised to see the many hands of true friends reaching down to pull you up, while others’ hands are folded in prayer on your behalf, and still others’ hands are lifted in praise for your abundant victories yet to come.
Take the hands reaching out for you. Feel yourself being lifted.
Share your gratitude and joy, as it’s contagious, and so many need your smile.
The bountiful blessing you’ve just received is wasted unless you share it.
Now is good.
Share it now.
And if you find yourself at rock bottom as you read this, reach up. Take my hand.
Thank you to those of you who’ve extended your hands, your love, and your friendship to Randy, Jacob, and I, as we toppled, keeled, and pitched headlong downward, found our footing, and looked up toward you for friendship, encouragement, support–and found love.
You know who you are!
