**I originally wrote this on May 7, 2018. I feel like it is worth a share. 2018 has been a difficult year for me. I feel like I am constantly being tested. We are not alone. I believe our loved ones continue to watch over us and will guide us if we open our hearts and ears.

Clear as day, I hear her this evening….almost like she is literally whispering in my ear. A rallying cry!!
“Now is the time. Now is YOUR time.”
MaMaw Nina reminding me that my entire life I have watched the Bundick women display amounts of strength and courage like I have never seen. And with such dignity and grace. All while lifting their grateful eyes at the heavens. They helped prepare me for so many things that I have gone through and will go through. Grandma Bundick, a true Proverbs 31 woman, with such strength and faith that seemed to never falter.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.”
“Now is the time,” she whispers with urgency, a rallying cry.
“Now is your time.”
