Stirred To Life

What beautiful thought stirred you to life this morning?

For me, that thought was an e-mail:

Who Do You Love?

Great West Financial asked the dental community a beautiful question: 

Who do you love?*

*And, of course, what a life insurance policy from Great West Financial means to you in the context of love.

Well, dentists and dental students across the nation answered, pouring their hearts across the digital screen in 100 words or less. And I am honored to share that my Valentine’s response was among the 22 winning responses!

“I haven’t yet found the love of my life – other than my little morkie puppy, of course! But I love the idea that one day I will be in love, and one day I will be able to share with my love the serenity of knowing we are in the reliable hands of Great West Financial.  If that’s not an ”I love you” gift, I don’t know what is!”

So there you have it: the latest quote to decorate life insurance policies everywhere 😂

But now, I have a challenge for YOU:

In 100 words or less, tell us about the person you love. He, she, it, or just the idea is such a gift in your life.

P.S. Easter, Passover, Mother’s Day, and more! What a perfect time to give yourself and your loved ones a gift. Head on over to A Smile Blooms on Etsy to pick out your very own inspirational magnets, and to get your very own Values Journal with engaging exercises and meditations that guide you on a valued life.

Affordable. Enjoyable. Meaningful.

Just right.
