Remember, you are the office blessing. It is waiting on you and it desperately needs you. You are no small wheel in anyone’s cog. You are the quiet blessing that creates power and love in the atmosphere.
Can you imagine how God would feel he felt the childlike love and posture from us embodied in this drawing…a heart that says I love you. You are my best friend forever.
