I Rock! I make a difference, or do I?

>> Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

I so rock, and rock hard! In my own head I am even more phenomenal then Twilight, even my kids think so.

See this photo of Edward and Bella?  

Whatever Bella, been there! Done that!

This photo of my husband and I was taken in the very spot Edward and Bella stood; only we did it years before them.
See How I rock?!    

I love this photo of us, and it would have never happened if that nice man…whoever he was…had not stopped to offer to take it.   A small act of kindness I'll never forget.

Well, ok I’m a big liar; I don’t rock, most of the time I think I suck. Not the Edward kind of Suck just the lame ol kind.
It’s actually a major problem I have.
I don’t see the good things about myself.  The Differance I make everyday.

Do you see the Good in yourself??....The differance you make every day?

I don’t see that I make a difference, and I don’t take complements well. When someone shares with me that they think I make a difference, I get a real funny feeling on the inside and it makes me all uncomfortable and goofy. "Naw, whatever... nothing big."  Always making less of myself.

Where I fail big time, is seeing the little things I do every day that make a difference to others.  I always wish I could do more, I'm not doing all I can.

I use to wonder why I’m not rich, why didn’t God bless me with tons of money. I want to help everyone that needs it. But we just don’t have the money to help anyone but ourselves.

God is showing me... that showing love, kindness, or just telling someone you care, is just as important as making a huge difference to millions.

Just being there for someone makes more of a difference then what money can buy them.

Here is Conan doing stand up and bringing Joy to thousands!

Here I am *Scary resemblance I know* last summer,  telling a story at my cousin’s wedding, “the tick was this big.” Bringing, what I hope was just a little Joy to her.
She did tell me later it meant a lot to her that I told that story.   I told her I hate that she put that nasty photo of me on Facebook!
 Love you Kell.

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. ~Mark Twain

Love the picture - that's awesome! And some days I feel like a great big pile of suckage, but then I know my family loves me so much and God is so very good and it's all ok!

Hi! I like your blog... your honesty is refreshing!
God doesn't ask us to do great things, He just asks us to be true, honest, faithful and let people see HIS light shine through us.

When I was a teenager, I wrote a letter to myself, outlining a couple of times during my childhood when I felt I'd made a real difference to someone. I filed it away until I really needed it (which I secretly knew I would), and on that day, I opened it and read the letter I'd written myself. It made me cry, but dammit, it helped.

If the day ever comes when you really need it, I hope this blog post can do the same for you. You rock. You really do. Remember that.

Visiting to welcome you to SITS :)
