I lost my voice. My voice of reason is no longer a few steps down the hall. Now I must be intentional on hearing the voice. I must reach out, schedule lunches, send cards and funny memes to make sure she knows that I am still here. I am so proud of the voice, proud of her for stepping out on faith. It’s so like her. Never moved by emotions, but carefully thought out plans and faith.
In losing one voice, I have found my own. Although the voice is still a loud resounding force in my life, I now need to listen to my voice. Listening to this inner voice is probably the most pivotal thing I can do in my life right now. And when I doubt myself, that other voice is there to give me a little push. Thank God for the voices of reason He puts in your life. Don’t take them for granted. Listen, learn and grow.
