Can you guess who my best friend is?
Indeed, she is.
She has made life a joy for me. She stands by me in sun and in rain. She is closest to me in all ways. She is the love of my life; my honey. She is the last person I see in the night as I go to bed and the first person I see when I get up in the morning.
Her name is Emilia, the one in the picture.
Today she gave me a pleasant surprise. She told me she would write a post on my blog. I agreed. This is what she wrote:
Having followed your blog with keen attention this while, and commented on many of your posts, I like to give you this message. Please, share it with your readers.
I thank God for you. You are a real gift to the world. God put you here for a purpose. He wants to use you for something special; and that is what He is doing.
I am amazed by your passion to uplift, motivate and inspire people to reach their full potentials. I have seen you do this all your life with awesome results.
I embrace all your mighty dreams. Your vision for an excellent world leaves me simply dumbfounded. As you say, out in the world billions of people thirst for an excellent world and are ready to do their best for it. I encourage you to continue to fight for it. Fight for the down-trodden; the voiceless; the desperate; the oppressed; the exploited. You have the talent that is needed and God will put the right people on your path to carry you through. I am also fully there for you.
Definitely, you will meet with setbacks but I urge you not to give up. This is what you have asked people all your life to do. You must put your own teaching into practice.
Keep your eyes fixed on the stars. I have a hunch the world will hear about you and acknowledge your contribution.
You will meet many excellent people who will give you the help you need to carry through.
As you fight to make a difference be sure of my love and support.
This is my gift of the year. What do you think of this gift. I love it. It has energized me. It has fired me up.It reminds me of the letters we exchanged before our marriage.
