What is that sparkles and shines about Robin Roberts? One cannot really put a name on it , pin it, or place it. We just know that people the world over tune in to listen to her or see her infectious smile. It's a good start to your morning when Robin jump starts your day. So it was no small wonder I found myself crying over the passing of Robin's mom. I had never before met her or even seen her mom, but still her connection to Robin tugged at my heart and ushered me into a place of deep empathy.
I'm sure we can all think of people like Robin who are like soothing fresh air, who tend to make you feel calm, hum a tune, smile inwardly - A few on my short list would be, Maya Angelou, Joel Osteen, Lady Di, Dr. Ruth, Mandela, Dale Bronner, you get the picture. You may never have met them in person but from a distance they look like a friend. Their spirit reaches out and connects with yours in 'un-nameable' ways.
We can only hope that we come close to achieving this state of natural mystic. Our aim should be to possess or nurture that that 'IT' which makes us beautiful human beings with that incredible spark that emanates outside of our awareness and leaves an indelible mark of goodness on others every time they cross our path.
Robin may your beautiful mom rest in peace. I know her work here on earth was well done because even as her unencumbered spirit rises to her maker, it yet remains in you and you with us inspiring us to greatness.
Love and Blessings
