wendy has a halo. i’m convinced of it. she is the best-in-the-family at expressing thanks, birthday wishes, words of encouragement, stories of her own life in cards and notes and photographs and letters and all digital methods of communicating. we try to stay in touch and know what is going on in each other’s lives. we have agreed that in all our texts, our snapchats, our chats, we are “sharing life” and there couldn’t be anything more important.
one of the things i absolutely know about wendy is that she relies on the power of prayer. she names people she loves and lifts them up. she thinks positive thoughts. she sends positive messages. and she prays.
i have had many a time on my knees. searching for answers. asking for guidance. hoping for grace. lifting up people i love.
were we to all be like wendy, perhaps we would all have halos too. mostly, perhaps we would all have everyone else’s best interests at heart. perhaps our world would be more compassionate; perhaps it would be kinder.
with or without a halo, i want to participate. to pray for goodness, to be kind, to share lives.
