I Give Thanks
It’s Thanksgiving time here in America and I wanted to pause for a moment and let you know how grateful I am for you. Because of you I have kept moving forward. Because of you I have continued to write newsletters and record podcasts. Because of you we have saved lives.
I wanted to share a recent email I received. The following message is as it came to my inbox.
Dear, Ms. Jeanie,
I can’t even begin to tell you how much your response to my email has uplifted me. I don’t what part of the universe, what act of mercy from God made me feel like you were the one person I should reach out to, the one person I should email who might give me some hope. I’m crying as I write because I’m so grateful you took the time out of your day to try to uplift
and encourage me. Your email made me think a lot about how I treat myself. I give love and acceptance to others but how it that admirable if I can’t even do the same for myself. I am a big believer in faith as well so thank you for reminding me to look towards God again. I came across this article that mentioned that God never truly leaves you. You just forget that He’s there. I forgot that even if the world was to turn on me, God knows what’s truly in my heart. He knows that I mean no harm, and I’ve come to the conclusion that, that alone, is enough. I also believe that God sends down Angels in human form to us whenever we need them the most. It might be a silly thought but I truly, in all my heart, believe that I was ment to come across your name in that dark hour last night when I had no one else to turn to. Sometimes the people who can give us the most hope are mere strangers. I believe that God wanted me to reach out to you and tell you my worries because he hasn’t given up on me, to remind me that I still have hope, I still have potential. I could have came across no one to email or emailed someone who wouldn’t even have time to email me back, let alone 3 times. Ms. Jeanie, I don’t know you at all and you have already shown me so much care and love that I am truly moved to tears right now. You had no reason to check up on me, yet you still did. I feel so loved right now, you have no idea. I cant thank you enough. Even if everyone I know was to reject me and call me the meanest names in the world I will always have you to remember. I will always remember that Ms. Jeanie believes that I am valuable, she believes that all I have to do is to learn to love myself. And to learn how to love myself, I will. I pray that you get all the happiness in the world, Ms. Jeanie. God works in mysterious ways and sometimes when it all seems so bleak and gloomy, he pushes you towards hope, towards a reminder that He’s still here. He pushed me towards you. I promise I will not harm myself, I will not bully myself, I will not allow others to determine how I should feel about myself. I will learn to be a woman of strong character. I will work on building a strong, indestructible foundation for myself. That I promise you, Ms. Jeanie. You have truly given me hope. You are my human angel. And if it ever seems tough, and I need a little push, a little reminder, I will turn to you again. Thank you so much for being a friend, a calming voice for me when I was so so confused. I promise that I will work to build a loving and mutual relationship with not only God, but myself as well. I believe when you love God, you are also loving yourself. Thank you so much. For everything. We may never meet but know this, you have truly changed my whole outlook on life. I have hope. And I will never give up, I will always remember what you have done for me. You checked up on me and that, to me, is most loving and caring gesture. I’m overwhelmed by your kindness. Thank you. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I will always remember you whenever I feel isolated and alone. An I will pick myself back up. I know I did not come across your name online as a mere chance, a mere coincidence Ms. Jeanie, I hope you always smiling because you made this confused girl smile again. Your kindness means to world to me. I will not give up on myself, Ms. Jeanie. I promise
Because of you we are bully proofing the world one community at a time by improving confidence and personal value from the inside out.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support.
May you be blessed this holiday season,
