Simply an image?

So let’s say you’re at Kroger (or your grocery of preference) for your regular grocery trip and you pass someone on the cereal aisle that has an outline of Africa on their shirt.  What do you think?  What’s the first thing that pops in your mind when you see that shirt?  Or do you even notice?
This is where my kids live, so naturally I’m drawn to this image.  Whether worn on a shirt, necklace, bracelet, sticker . . .  it’s more than simply an image.  To me it’s 
support,
love,
encouragement. 
Several months ago I was meeting my friend Casey at a Murray State basketball game and we decided to have supper before the game.  As we were shedding our coats to settle in for some quality conversation, I saw it.
  
That beautiful image right there in front of me on her shirt and I was overcome with emotion.  That’s for my babies.  She loves them.  She supports them.  She loves me.  She supports me.  I totally was not expecting the emotion, but what an amazing feeling of love and support when I didn’t even realize I needed it.  And time and time again I’m touched and humbly grateful for the love and support others are willing to demonstrate through something as simple as an image.
