we never really know when we are going to leave this earth. you know, some people might want to ask the question ‘why’? God works in mysterious ways, but has a reason for everything. this little girl fought and she fought hard to stay here, but God had a different plan. there are people who might wonder what kind of God would take a little girl away from her parents… God doesn’t do these without purpose. and though we might not see it now, maybe one day we will see that purpose. she was stronger than any little person that i know. she gets to be in Heaven and be a kid now. she gets to run and play with her long hair that she always wished she had. whether any one knows it yet or not, she has been an inspiration. she has shown so much strength and so much fight.
when i was driving home tonight after hearing the news, i got another feeling. a feeling that wasn’t sadness, but rather reassurance. like He was telling me that He took her, she’s safe, she’s comfortable. her little body doesn’t have to fight anymore. she can rest now. and i felt okay knowing that He wasn’t leaving the ends undone.
it makes you take a look at your own life. what have i got left to accomplish? what else do i want to do? how much time do i have? what’s really worth it? some people think that i am crazy when i say i feel like i might run out of time. this is why. i don’t want to waste any time away. i want to open my eyes. see the beauty and the blessings. we all go around in circles living lives that we might not be happy living. why? we all wonder what life might be like in someone else’s shoes … what’s wrong with yours? every single person has a purpose. every single one of us. so, maybe this girl was put here to inspire all of us to live every day. take deep breaths and enjoy this life while we have it. appreciate those you have in your life, regardless of the differences. appreciate your experiences. start to dance, sing, and smile regardless of who’s watching. live. simple as that, look above and let the light shine.
