Bethany King, Guest Blogger #17, is an amazing friend of mine on Snapchat. She wanted to participate in the month of LOVE last year but they had a lot going on in their family with moving out of state. I was delighted she agreed to submit a story this year. She is a steady soul who always has thought provoking commentary on important issues and at the same time is the sweetest, smiliest and friendliest person you’d ever meet. So without further ado, it’s my honor to share her story….
I met Guest Blogger #15, the lovely Aussie April, through Snapchat. She has been involved in my #tellthetruththursday and also the #30daysofgratitude challenge. We’ve connected on Instagram and Twitter too! She is so supportive and a sweet loving lady. So when she said she was working on a LOVE story for the Guest Blogger Month I was delighted. Then when I read her submission I was floored, blown away and in awe at this woman’s strength. Get yourself prepared….
Olivia Kirwin is a force be reckoned with . Because she is a force of LOVE! Always smiling in spite of every reason not to, but her spirit is one of those with a deep strength and deep faith. I am honored to have my dear friend sharing a LOVE story here during the Guest Blogger Month. This Irish lass is someone to look to for encouragement if you have hard knocks. Cuz someone like Olivia will take the knocks, turn them on their head, add in some laughs and instrumental accompaniment and before you know it, it has turned into a symphony of joy!
Offering up my blog to guests to share their experiences of LOVE is just as scary for me as it is for those who are bravely submitting stories. You never know as a giver if people will want to receive. But I decided last February when I started this series that each year I will do it anyway. In spite of the nerves. That is courage. It is being afraid and doing it anyway. And to my amazement people have accepted the invitation. My heart explodes with joy to read and publish these incredible stories. Today’s Guest Blogger Post #7 is another example of a beautiful treasure. Wait until you read Naomi’s love story! Continue reading
