Today we made it to Oklahoma City and it was a long day, but a great day indeed!
Yesterday was a milestone for Trinity hitting 50,000 miles. ——
Today I had the pleasure of meeting a gentleman who two years ago this past May had a rough patch in life.
He was way behind on bills and was struggling to feed his family.
They own a farm and crops had not been generating as much money as was needed to continue to put food on the table.
His best truck had just been repossessed, and his marriage was failing.
He tucked his two girls into bed and went out to the barn to fix one of the tractors.
He saw the shotgun that was kept in the tractor for coyotes and decided that his life insurance policy was the way to get enough money for his family to survive.
He thought about it for a bit, sat down in the tractor cab, put the barrel under his chin, and pulled the trigger.
Not even a click.
He said that he paused for a great while in the same position that he was in with the cold steel of the barrel pressing firmly against the underside of his chin.
After a bit, he got up, went inside and kissed his wife and girls again, and went to bed.
The next morning he grabbed the shotgun, pointed it at the side of the barn, and pulled the trigger.
The shotgun went off without any issues, peppering the side of the barn with holes from the buckshot.
Two days later, his grandfather passed away from natural causes and they received enough money to start climbing out of debt.
He said to me, “if I could tell the world one thing, it would be to never give up and to lean on one another in hard times.”
His story will forever resonate in my mind. ——
Comedy is needed in life, and a friend sent me this today. I found it worthy of sharing. ——

Before you speak make sure that what you are about to say is more meaningful than the silence. God has given us eyes not to insult but to look beyond situation, lips not to criticize but to speak for truth. What other people say about you is their reality not yours. Be conscious of your words especially when you're not in the best mood. You never want to mix bad words with bad mood. You can always reverse your mood, but your words can't be replaced. People may not always tell you how they feel about you, but their actions will speak for themselves. For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness. A positive word of encouragement can help change someone's entire life. Say only what you mean. Use the power of your words in the direction of truth and love.

#truthtuesday Love this. It’s hard sometimes but you can’t let the world harden your heart. ❤️

⭐️ coming atcha with another psa post 😌✊🏼💛
if someone comes to you in a time of need, know that they are at their most vulnerable. if they talk openly about how they’re feeling which isn’t gonna be candy floss and unicorns, you need to know that opening up to someone you trust- hell, even ANYBODY is a huge task.
don’t be a dick. don’t say shit like “ aw don’t worry you’ll feel better soon or “ cheer up, you have nothing to be sad about “. DONT dismiss people’s struggles, thoughts or feelings. in the words of brene brown - ‘ sympathy drives disconnection’. .
i know a lot of you “ masculine “ types will be reading this and probably think ‘ man up/ crying is for the weak ‘ and whatever else dumb gym fake positivity you can throw here.
i’m not going to sugar coat this for you: mental illness TAKES LIVES. your words can TAKE LIVES. you don’t need a weapon to threaten. your words or dismissal can simply be enough. .
also don’t make your loved ones make shitty promises such as “ promise you’ll call me if you feel depressed ! promise me you’ll speak to me “. doing this builds even higher walls of silence. we fear you’ll get mad if we don’t speak to you, we fear we’re a burden if we do talk to you. we fear we won’t be soothed by your words and instead driven away. .
if you really want to help, it starts with LISTENING. being patient, don’t draw up contracts. be there for your loved one, it’s really not rocket science. if you need help with what to say, there are some great resources out there that can help. mind.co.uk is a good place to start. .

"Kau adalah wanita terhebat yang pernah aku temui. Terima kasih ibu atas waktumu, kasih sayangmu, cintamu, materimu yang telah kau berikan kepadaku dan tak akan pernah aku bisa membalasnya. Kaulah orang yang akan selalu mencintai dan menyayangiku tanpa ada syarat apapun, tanpa ada batasan ataupun rasa bosan. Aku selalu mengatakan, aku sangat beruntung karena kau bisa menjadi apapun bagiku dan bisa memposisikan dirimu saat aku benar-benar butuh dan tumbang sekalipun.

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” - Audrey Hepburn
