This card was given to me by a very dear friend over 20 years ago.
Inside was a special message; I took this card and placed it in a frame as a reminder.
When I received this card, I was experiencing some challenges in my personal and professional life.
My confidence was gone; I had lost sight of my phenomenal woman.
After receiving this card, I knew not only was I loved but, I had not lost myself; I changed into the Classy Lady you see in this picture.
Inside all of us is our classy selves tucked away for safekeeping until it is time to surface stronger, wiser, and more determined than ever; A force to be reckoned with as you begin to conquer your personal and professional challenges.
Most importantly, my dear friend continues to be an integral part of my life, which is rare; I don't take it for granted, but that is a subject for any day. They have been able to help me navigate my journey and provide sound advice along the way.
As the light shines on this Classy Lady in the picture, remember your light and continue to allow it to shine bright even when it seems the darkness will not end.
