Food for thought…

I have a lot on my mind as I reenter my routine this week. I have clearly outlined what I am committed to prioritizing this week, but these words will help me to stay focused on what really is important. I hope you will also embrace these words as you move through your week. It is my hope that good things will be yours as you live true to your vision and passion in your day-to-day routines!

Sweet 16….

My niece Anneliese turned 16 yesterday. I had wanted to write on her birthday, but since I was busy with my experience at U 1st Fitness, I opted to write it today.

Anne is easy to be with, dependable, hardworking and easygoing. She is more of a thinker than a talker, but she is also delightful to have a conversation with. Anne loves to be outdoors and is in her glory if she can be out with horses. Anne is a natural when it comes to working with any animals and has always dreamed of owning her own horse. She is tender, kind, compassionate and a very clear thinker.

I believe I have seen the most change in Anne in this past year. She enjoys High School, is an excellent student and is the captain of her basketball team. I enjoy watching Anneliese develop her leadership skills. One of the things I enjoy most about Anne is all the quiet ways she draws people in. Anne has a powerful presence and is a very good reminder to me that one can be a very quiet person and carry a significance influence!

Anneliese , I am excited for you and hope being 16 is delightful and fun. Thank you for allowing me to enjoy you and your day-to-day life.  I am always here to support you, encourage you or cheer you on. I believe God has big things planned for you. What fun it is to watch you love other people and animals with such gentleness and compassion. I know you are deeply loved and very well liked by all of us, your family, siblings, cousins and friends.

I have a favorite quote and it reminds me of watching you this last year….And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful that the risk it took to bloom.

Your flower has emerged and it is awesome! I am proud of you and love you very much….bloom baby bloom!

I love you with all my heart        Aunt Trish
