I'm sitting in a blue comfy chair in the library. My eyes are filling with tears, happy tears. Tears because all morning I have been pitying myself for not being good enough, happy enough, adventurous enough, and thankful enough. Sitting next to me is a guy my age. He's at a table for two with his friend. His friend has down syndrome. I'm not sure of his age or why he has a black eye patch on his eye but he is trying so hard to repeat the words his friend is reading in the book out loud. My heart is completely melting for I know this time spent together is completely selfless; something I need to do more of. The answer to my prayers today.

Some of Gods greatest gifts are unanswered prayers, but even greater is an answer in the form of an others' selfless act of service.


  1. Brit,
    you have no idea who i am and i don't even know who you are, but somehow i stumbled upon your cute cute CUTE blog. seriously i read through the entire thing and i was still wishing there was more. i can't even imagine all the things you've gone through. every one of your posts inspired me to be better, do better, live better.
    funny, too, that i am leaving for hawaii next saturday :) cannot wait.
    i feel like i can relate to you in a lot of ways. i'm really just trying to figure out who i am and what i want in life. i cry a lot....because i'm so grateful & happy but also because i'm scared and i feel lost, like things won't work out the way i want them to. i pray, pray, and pray more for help and answers. i am so grateful to know that i can be forgiven when i mess up too & that my relationship with Heavenly Father will only be strengthened.
    anyway i'm not making a lot of sense but THANK you. really. you are amazing and so strong!

    xoxo courtney.
