Friday Favorites!

Thank you for another Friday linkup, Erika, Narci, and Andrea.

I wanted to take a moment to pass on a few encouraging words of prayer and condolences to the families of the victims that were involved in the Orlando tragedy. This occurred in my home state and so close to Tampa.

This senseless act of violence hit especially close to home for me because my coworker lost his sweet, sweet brother to this terrible act of violence. It hurts my heart so deeply.  The awful reality is that situations like this serve, selfishly, as a reminder for me to slow down and to hug my loved ones because you never know what tomorrow will bring.

Therefore, this Friday Favorites edition will be in honor of Christopher SanFeliz and a tribute to my beautiful family.

1. Thank you to my mom and dad. Who taught me to love.

2. Thank you to my baby sister. Who constantly sees the good in people and embraces diversity and the differences that make this world such a unique place.

3. Thank you to my brother and his little sweet family. Whose sense of humor guides people through difficult times.

4. Thank you to my oldest brother. Who is always a loud voice for those that are not always heard. 

5. Thank you to my husband. Who always fights for the underdog with sincere passion.

A small silver lining did come from this time of mourning for me. I saw the goodness that still remains in humanity. We all united as one to help, offer prayers, platelets or hugs to the families and friends of those who lost loved ones. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. #floridastrong
