A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.
― Steve Maraboli
Holiday Cheer Day 5 brought some much-needed cheer to Michelle. Michelle was nominated by Bettina. Bettina took a moment to put into her own words why she felt Michelle should be a recipient:
“Michelle is a single mom who loves her kids so much. Being separated recently, she took all the ups and downs in life with grace and I am so proud of her for holding her head high and sticking to her gut when it came to life decisions. Going through a separation is hard, but she also lost her father and brother to cancer in less than a year. She has been through so much pain in the past year and I wish her lots of happiness for the future.”
Today I am so grateful that these two friends had a moment to share how they inspire one another. I know that they spent Thanksgiving together and really are family to one another.
Letting those that nominated this year deliver the gifts has been so rewarding. Bettina wrote me last night and I just have to share:
And now my friends, I will call all of you who have helped put this together the “Cheer Squad”. I can not tell you how grateful I am to all of you.
But, I think Michelle described it best in her Facebook post last night:
Wishing you a year full of happiness to keep your cup running over, Michelle!
