A Drop in the Ocean (RE-POST)

Continuing on with my blogaversary re-post week, I'd like to thank everyone for stopping by and entering my GIVEAWAY. You still have until 5pm (PST) May 1st. So PLEASE head over to that post and enter.

Today's re-post is simply indulgent. I just can't help but love this post. It is a really good window into th mind of Corey. AND....I still adore these photos. oh how I loved that hat....and chubby cheeks! ♥ ENJOY!




Mother Theresa of Calcutta once said:

“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”

Often I find myself going about my daily life wondering what I am actually accomplishing. Before Sugar Bear entered my life, I distinctly remember feeling as if I were making no difference in this world at all. I hated feeling like it really didn't matter what I did, in 70 years...there would be no one here to remember me, and what I accomplished. I felt as if there was no purpose. Sugar Bear changed all that. There is absolutely NO doubt in my mind that I was destined to be her mother. My purpose in life is to raise this girl up, and in doing so....I am making a difference.

At the end of each day, I find myself wondering about that "drop in the ocean". I sit back and think about the events of the day, and ponder which of the activities we did, made a difference. Sometimes it is harder than others to come to the realization that EVERYTHING I do makes a difference to Sugar Bear. EVERYTHING!!!

The simple things.....the fun things.....the hard things...the sad things....the loving things....the loud things....the quiet things....and the mad things. All those things put together are making a difference. All those things will come together, and as Sugar grows...they will make up who she is. Every moment of everyday is a lesson. Whether I try or not....I am making a difference.

Even a simple trip to the beach yields so many important lessons in life.

Sometimes life is seen as half full.


Sometimes it is half empty.


Sometimes we are blessed with MANY.


Sometimes ONE is plenty.


Sometimes we need to ask for help.


Sometimes we stand alone.


Sometimes we are the ones drawing the line.


Sometimes we are the ones to cross it.


Sometimes we need to follow...


and follow...


and follow.


Sometimes we just need to lead.



And no matter what....it is ALWAYS better if you have a silly hat, and a SMILE!




LIFE IS GOOD!
