Today's prompt from Rachel Cole's Savor project is focused on the supportive people in our lives:

Because of [insert supportive person's name here] ...

My meditation this morning called on naming one specific person, but for the purposes of this blog I want to broaden my response. Use it however you would like.

Because of a handful of very special friends in my life, I am loved.

I am comforted when I need to be comforted. I am cared for when my heart needs extra care.

I shine and sparkle in their eyes, which makes it easier to shine and sparkle in my own.

I am stronger.

Because of the special people in my life, I am grateful.

Happy almost-Thanksgiving to my American readers. I'm going off-the-grid tomorrow, so I'll return on Friday. Until then, may all of you be well.
