Sometimes It Takes Less Than 30 Seconds To Be Amazing

I shared on Facebook recently that my Grandma has been moved to hospice. It’s tough to deal with, especially when other things in your life are less-than-stellar.

Despite the darkness, there’s always someone cheering you on. This is what I woke up to this morning from one of my blogger friends.

This made my morning!

That’s Brooke from Diary of a Determined Momma and her two boys. She’s one of my blogger friends and she totally made my week with this video. I know it probably took her less than 30 seconds to film it, but that 30 seconds means an awful lot to me.

Thank you for cheering me on Brooke!!!


  1. Aw I love it! Stay strong Jen 🙂

  2. Awww, I love you Jen! I’m happy the boys and I could cheer you up. I’m always here for you lady! *Mwuah!*

  3. What a sweet friend! I am sending lots of light and positive vibes your way from SE Ontario (Canada).

    I’m so sorry that things are really tough for you now. Please be extra kind to yourself. “The darkness defines where the light is…” – although this thought may not help now, perhaps soon. Take care. 🙂

  4. Well Miss Jen-cake lol that is so sweet Brooke and her kids did that for you! It just goes to show 30 seconds can do so much! Love Ya

  5. Brooke is amazing. 🙂 And so are you! <3 We are all here for you. #randombloggers 😉

  6. What a wonderful friend! Keep her in your life, forever. My grandfather was recently moved to a nursing home, for a very progressed case of Alzheimer’s. Lots of hugs from my corner of the country, Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri!
