Find The Light That Inspires

“You were placed here for a purpose greater than you know, and you have a long way to go on your journey to fulfill that purpose and find that joy from having an abundant life full of pleasant memories and lots of hope and love.” ~ A Grieving Mother

Inspiring Light - 100PedalsAddiction is the most frustrating of experiences for a parent.  The hopes, dreams, and wishes for our children are slowly destroyed before our eyes.  Worse, there is not enough love in the world to save a lost soul.

This quote is from a mom in an open letter to her son and others in the wake of his passing due to an overdose.  Unfortunately, this happens far to often.  Even though I have come to find out it is painfully common, its tragedy is never diminished.  I have thought many times about the possibilities that my son’s life could end this way if he doesn’t find his path to peace in time.

My message to all — find the light that inspires.  Chase after it.  Run toward it.  And, never turn away from it.  What inspires you, drives you.  What drives you, guides you.  Anything that is positively powerful, will eventually save you!!
