Before I begin writing this blog, I would like to take a moment to send my condolences to those affected in the Las Vegas shooting. My heart goes out to those families who lost their loved ones in this tragedy. I pray that God will give you strength and peace to go through this hurtful moment in your lives.
Each Thursday I think deeply about who or what I’m thankful for in my life. It’s not always easy finding what to write but, sometimes, God reveals to me what to write and then it begins to flow, just like today’s blog. My Thankful Thursdays mean a lot to me and that’s why I think deeply about what I put out here for my lovely audience to read.
Let’s just get into it. Today I would like to dedicate my blog to an amazing woman who has made me proud this week. Her name is Donna Snyder. Donna is a lovely wife, a mom and a representative of Rodan and Fields. She is a fighter and doesn’t give up when things are tough. For the past week, she has taken a task that she didn’t see coming her way and I commend her for that because it just tells me the type of person she is. This task can be overwhelming but she is doing a great job handling it like a pro. Trust me, there’s no reason to go into detail, but rather I just want to highlight the type of character this woman of God carries in her.
The main reason why I’m highlighting Donna today (or should I say putting her on the spot) is because she did something recently that blew my mind. She let her natural hair out!! For some of you who don’t understand the depth of this, you might look at this picture and say, “what’s the big deal?”
Yes! It is a big deal when you have a rare sickness that doesn’t allow your hair to grow normally and you feel like you have to live off of wigs. Well, this courageous woman said no to wearing her beautiful wig and decided to be bold to let it out! I almost cried with joy because I know how much this meant to her.
Donna, I want you to know that I am extremely proud of you. Whether you are wearing your wig or letting your natural hair out, I am still proud of the woman you are inside. You make me so proud anytime we talk and have our heart to heart conversations. Continue to stay bold and beautiful and you never know how your story helps someone out there to be courageous at their current time of hardship.
There’s ALWAYS something to be thankful for. Little or large, what are you thankful for?
