I was catching up with a good friend of mine the other night about different things happening in our lives. I shared some recent events and she did the same. Then before our conversation ended she told me she was making Copious Amounts of tacos for her growing teenage boys to chow down on. That quick two worded phrase struck a cord in me for some reason. I suppose because it isn’t used much any longer with today’s changing language. (and changing it is) Definition: co·pi·ous ˈkōpēəs adjective abundant in supply or quantity.
After thinking about this single word all evening, I realized why it grabbed hold of my thoughts and heart. It is a word that describes who she is and what she represents about life in general. As long as I’ve known her, (she had the teenager now in a backpack running up a mountain when we met), my friend has always shown copious amounts of energy and emotion with everything she does in life.
She sets copious amounts of examples on how to make the world a better place by simply smiling as you generously do for your family and others.
The world needs, right now, more copious amounts of my friends attitude for survival.
Think about a world with COPIOUS AMOUNTS of: Love; Generosity; Compassion; Understanding; Friendship; Perseverance; Acceptance; Helping Hands; Energy; Forgiveness; Self Reliance; Selflessness and True Hearts
To my friend who has shown me Copious Amounts of Love and Acceptance over the years, may the world be more like you one day…….That is my wish for this coming Holiday Season
