Precious Life..

I have been thinking quite a bit lately about how precious and amazing life is. I went to visit my Grandmother (Mama Carol) this past weekend who has become very sick. My Mama Carol was a very strict, strong, independent women who did everything for everyone around her. She never asked for any one's help and was a very strong women.
This weekend I walked into a room where my strong grandmother sat in a wheelchair being fed by a nurse in my Aunt's house. She did not recognize me or anyone other than her precious precious Husband. (My Grandfather.) It was probably the toughest weekend I have had to deal with in my life. My grandfather is watching the love of his life slowly weaken and its heart breaking. My Aunt looked at me while I was tearing up while my Grandpa tucked my grandma into her bed and said you are learning a lot about true love.
Life is so precious and fragile and it is so tough to hear stories about lovely people who are battling illness and old age.
The only thing I can do is appreciate every single second of my life. Let my loved ones know how important they are to me and help others who are in need.
It just so happened that I received a call from the Children's Hospital while I was visiting my grandmother asking if I could come in and hang out with young girls who have been diagnosed with Cancer on Wednesday. I of course said Yes, and hung up the phone. I felt at that moment it was a task from god :) It is something I can do to try and brighten these girls days. My Sister and I will spend Wednesday together playing with our friends at Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital :)

So this Thanksgiving Week, I want to give thanks to all of my beautiful family and friends and wish everyone health and happiness.
Hug your loved ones tight this week! Hugs to you all and I leave you with some photos of my loves :)

How I Celebrated My Birthday (aka 38 Random Acts of Robyn)

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago my birthday wish was to complete one Random Act of Kindness for every year of my life thus far, as well as asking friends, readers, Facebook fans and fellow Twitter-ers to each perform one Random Act of Kindness and to let me know about it throughout the day.

And love is what changes trying times into bearable times, and hard moments into a good learning moments. Love is where I know I am safe and happy, and I want that for everyone-no matter what they look or act like.

I read a blog that I constantly find quotes and posts from that makes me rethink my life! You might have seen Stephanie Nielson on Oprah in the past. She surrived a plane crash and over 80% of her body was burned. Her life obviously changed forever, but instead of letting that stop her she is still a fabulous mom to four kids and an amazing wife. I read her blog and shake my head just thinking about how strong of a women she is.

P.S. I LOVE that quote! It makes me smile really big and keeps me smiling during a long distance relationship that I really wish was a close distance relationship :)
