A BRIGHT LIGHT

Sophia and Isaac

This is my sister,  Sophia.  She is such an artist, with paint and with personality.  She helps me so much in areas that I am weak.  Almost everyday she finds joy and happiness in the smallest things.  Things like catching a beautiful butterfly and then letting it go, or picking a flower and giving it to someone to make them feel special.  She brings light to so many people.  I enjoyed going to this lake with her as we chased ducks and watched them play and swim.  She is never shy or afraid of an adventure.  I love her enthusiasm for life.  She also is so interested in helping me with my weaknesses.  She even helps me with therapies and sees my life as one of purpose.

Everyone is unique in strengths and weaknesses.  It’s the combination and blending of these in friendships that make life so fascinating and enjoyable.  I enjoy people who are unique or even odd to some,  because they are not predictable and less boring.  Sophia is certainly not boring.  Those who are unique yet are integrated into society, in my opinion, we must treat them as gems, for that is what they are.  Everyone can take a little strength from their friends who are different, but not if your friends are all the same as you.  Under pressure to be accepted we sometimes pretend to be strong when in reality we are weak.  This robs us from the opportunity to rub shoulders with somone who could help us grow out of our weaknesses, to be stronger.  I cannot afford to pretend to be someone  I am not.  I need help with my weaknesses so I wouldn’t jeapardize that opportunity  for growth for a false sense of approval.

2nd photo Isaac and Sophia   My sister, Sophia, has certainly helped me see life as an exciting journey, revealing the beauty of friendship and acceptance of everyone.  She has taken an odd shaped “cake” like me, and artfully decorated me to be more appealing.  A true artist she is.  We may be just the ingredient someone around us needs to be more beautiful on the inside or out by just being who we are.   Sophia intelligently recognizes me as different, yet she loves me regardless of my limitations.  Not your average 7 year old sister.  To me,  she is priceless.  Just follow her example of meeting  the needs of others while being beautiful, genuine, and young, with only joy and happiness in view everyday.  We  just might open our lives to a little more light, like Sophia.

    1. Isaac,
      I think that you are truly amazing, because with your weaknesses you say you have, you could be dwelling on them and fretting about everything that you have difficulty doing, however, you choose to dwell on the special abilities that someone else has and how they can strengthen you. To me you don’t see what you’re lacking but realize what precious gems that you possess that are inestimable. It’s not really about what people are doing for you. You can’t imagine what you’re doing for others. You truly are special. May Jehovah continue to bless your wonderful life.
      With much L❤️VE,

  7. I love your comments about appreciating all kinds of friends, even if they have “different” personalities! 😄 Grandpa Mike and Grandma Terri were so good at that! We always had people visiting that may have been considered eccentric by others, but they were just part of the family to us. Some of them even lived with us! Your grandparents really encouraged all of us to be unique individuals, too, and I can see that spirit lives on in your family.
