The Love Jar

Today was better than yesterday. Not great but better. And for that, I am grateful.

My big sister visited this weekend. She helped around the house, caught us up on our laundry, helped me organize my life and snuggled my little man. All of these things were so wonderful. I can’t thank her enough for all of her help and support this weekend.

You know what’s even more wonderful than all of those things?

Sister snuggles. There is nothing quite as amazing as sister snuggles. There is something about a warm hug and a belly laugh with a sister that wipes away all the bad in the world. That, in itself, helps the healing process.

My sister, with the help of incredible friends and family, created a “Love Jar” for me. It is filled with memories of fun and laughter, inspirational words and love – stories, quotes and thoughts put together just for me. I have only read a few so far – and they brought tears for many reasons.

There is something magical about it. Reading each piece of paper gives me strength. It’s easy to get caught up in the everyday right now, especially with the whirlwind that has been the last month. The Love Jar reminds me of the greatness that is life – and the way it impacts everyone differently. It is inspiring and humbling all at once.
