Blog Alert: This post is a Proud Auntie moment! My niece, Kelsey Charron, has started her own blog. One of her first notes frames my thoughts for these comments.
It requires so many decisions, doesn’t it?
Family choices about elderly parent’s care.
Business choices about direction.
Personal choices about priorities.
And then it’s time to get out of bed.
So as I was thinking last week about
what to do, what to do, what to do…
Kelsey’s writing reminded me of the importance of
who to be, who to be, who to be.
Her beautiful, heart-felt words said this…
What do I want to be when I grow up? I want to be the person who notices the kid standing alone in the corner and makes him or her feel important. I want to be the person who steps up and leads in difficult situations, even when nobody else will. I want to be a people-loving, litter picker-upping, laughing-till-you-pee, light for the Lord. I want to be the best version of me that I can be, and I want to glorify God with everything that I am, during that process.
Keep being that person, Kelsey.
The kid standing alone in the corner is waiting for you – and for me – to show up.
