#BecaToldMeTo

Love and Condolences To

The Schofield Family

condolences

The following article was taken from a news link on the web… I believe it was written by Sarah Petz.

Forgive me for not internet savvy, I don’t have facebook or the like so I couldn’t share it there or tweet or anything else. But I wanted to share some love for the young lady known as Becca! Here is the address where I read the article. Below you will find a portion of the article.

Becca Schofield, the Riverview, N.B., teen whose campaign to spread kindness became a global movement, has died at the age of 18. 

Her family confirmed that Schofield died Saturday night after a battle with brain cancer. 

She became internationally known after she asked people on social media to do something kind for someone else. That request sparked the #BeccaToldMeTo campaign.

She inspired the movement after finding out her disease was terminal in December 2016. 

In an interview last February, Schofield told CBC she had received responses to her campaign from as far away as Spain, Japan and Australia. 

The movement even attracted the attention of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who took note of Becca’s kindness in a message on Twitter.

In a statement posted to her Facebook page, her father, Darren, said she passed away at the Moncton Hospital with family by her side.

He thanked those who participated in her campaign for giving her “strength and courage throughout her journey.” 

“You gave her the profound blessing of knowing in her too short life that she had made a difference,” he wrote.

“You gave her hope that all the good and the bad of the past three years had a meaning, even at times when that was hard to see. Our whole family has been lifted by your love, and we will continue to feel you holding us up in the hard journey ahead.” 

While the campaign may have propelled Becca to international fame, Darren Schofield said she never intended #BeccaToldMeTo to be about her.

“Her legacy is not all the good that came our way. It is the thousands of acts of kindness that grew exponentially outward from our home in Riverview, spreading across North America and beyond,” he wrote.

“We pray #Beccatoldmeto will live on. Keep her dream alive, and our beloved Becca will live forever. Be kind.”

My intentions this evening was to come and share some words about love which we so desperately today…  before doing so I thought I would glance at what was going on in the news. I came across this story about Becca.

I don’t believe in coincidences. I’m thankful I came across the story. So in closing my prayers are for the Schofield family. I pray for comfort and peace in these upcoming days, months, and even years to come. Let’s all do our part to keep #Beccatoldmeto living on.

  • This nation needs love, and it needs to heal.
  • We can have different opinions and not be disagreeable or hurtful.
  • We can align  with different political parties and still respect the office and position of President.
  • We can be housed in different shades of skin color and not hate one another simple because of those differing skin colors…

Let’s All Give Love A Chance! Do Something Kind For Someone!

Happy Valentines Day

A Day Lauded As The Most Romantic Of The Yearpexels-photo-261974.jpeg

My prayers are that you are blessed to have your love ones around you, and that you will not waste any opportunity to let them know that you love and care for them. Life is too short to remain angry, hold grudges, or not speak to your friends and family.

Some families will go to bed this evening with someone missing. It is sad that this normally joyful day will forever be marred for some by the tragedy that took place today in Florida.

I left home this morning and enjoyed a wonderful day with my husband… it wasn’t until we returned home this evening and turned on the news that we learned of the the shooting that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

My hope and prayer is that comfort, and peace will come to all those that have been effected by all this senseless lost of life.

Good Bye To Megyn’s Nana

You did it Megyn…such a lovely tribute to your Nana.  I know you and your family will miss her dearly. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family as you say good-bye.

Talk about transparency, to share such personal look into your heart, and you did it with such class. Not in a distasteful way, trying to pull on your viewers heart strings to drum up popularity.

It’s not like I know you personally, but I admire the way you handle yourself and how you report the news. With all this said I just want to say I’m sure your Nana would be very proud of you today.

Prayers for you and your family. May God bless you all as you walk through the coming days and months.

Remember the good times!

Tears

My eyes filled with tears as I watched video of the museum goers (tourist) in Tunis,Tunisia run for their lives. What probably started out as a pleasant trip was ending in gun fire, screaming, and ducking for cover.

Terror…. it’s not new by any stretch of the means; it’s just the evil that is currently sweeping the world.

Those images and the recent stills that have been on the news and the net are meant to strike fear in the hearts of those that view them. Don’t live in fear, that can be tormenting; but do be aware of your surroundings. Use wisdom, and common sense when out and about. Don’t throw caution to the wind, we are living in a different day and time.

My prayers for all who have lost friends, family, and love ones today..

Praying for love and peace for you, and for all others who have suffered lost recently. As a close relative is suffering from chronic heart failure I am dealing with a lost that maybe soon to come.

But for the life of a love one to be taken in such a senseless way…..
no more words 😦
