Mom and the rest of us. I'm wearing the cool blue pants!

Mom and the rest of us. I’m wearing the cool blue pants!

Mom is visiting me from St. Croix, Virgin Islands…

And the other day she said something that really moved me. She said she was happy to be at home with me. She said being with me for even five minutes means so much to her.

Her words touched me because we have most things backward in this crazy world that we live in…

We’ve been conditioned to think that life is about what we know, what we’ve achieved, or how much wealth we’ve amassed.

Don’t know about your Mom but my Mom doesn’t care about any of that stuff, and I doubt she ever did. Her comment inspired me, empowered me and humbled me at the same time.

It made me realize that all we need is to be in the presence of a loved one…

Right now, you can empower or uplift others with the sheer strength of your Spirit.

If we can embrace this simple truth life becomes simpler – not easier but simpler.

You don’t have to be something or someone you’re not. You don’t have to know everything. You don’t have to be everything to everyone. You don’t need to have every single aspect of your life together.

Just be there for someone you love…

Spirit will take care of the rest.
