Today is the beginning of a very busy set of days for me. I won’t bore you with the details.
I have nothing profound to say today.
I feel bad for that.
What I do have is support. A feeling that I am cared for. A knowledge that I am loved.
That in and of itself is a profound statement. If you have that you have a lot more than many people in the world have.
That is what I have for today. I know it isn’t much where the written word is considered but it is a lot in the grand scheme of things.
There are people in the world who don’t even have the support of their parents or other family members, let alone friends who they can count on for love and support.
Support is a big deal for everyone on the planet. It reminds us that we are important, because we are. Every one of us is important (yes, even the ones we don’t like). We all have purpose and will impact someone on this planet.
If I could have a wish granted (that didn’t have all the movie caveats) it would be that the world would be free of slavery by the time that the pope has proposed and that all the people who are now free would have support. That they would have at least one person they could look to and say, “They care about me. I matter to them.”
But what do they say about wishes? If wishes were horses, beggars would ride?
Instead, we work tirelessly to work toward justice. To find a way to support those who cannot support themselves.
The way I am working toward this end is by wearing dresses this Dressember.
How can you help?
