The End of One Journey is the Beginning of Another

Every Tuesday I share the story of a #BeBoldGirl.

This week is slightly different. I want to update you on one #BeBoldGirl’s story.

My friend Cynthia Fantasia described some months ago how she was learning bold lessons on a hard journey with her husband’s Alzheimer’s disease.

For those of you who share similar journeys, you will value Cynthia’s advice to follow God one step at a time.

While your steps may be shaky, be bold. You do not make them alone. For God says:

I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Yesterday, I travelled from New York City to Massachusetts to attend the memorial service for Bob Fantasia.

I remember how Bob would speak so highly of my children, as if they were his own grandchildren. He always had a good word to say about everyone.

We celebrated Bob’s life today.

Bob fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith.

Bob was described as faithful. What a way to be remembered.

He was faithful and loving to Cynthia, to his children, and to his grandchildren. Bob was faithful to his God and Savior. Now, he has been welcomed into heaven with the words:

Well done, good and faithful servant.

As Cynthia starts a new chapter in her life of being bold, I would ask you to leave a note of encouragement for her in the comments.

We all need support to get through hard times.

One day, I hope Cynthia will be able to share other lessons she learned along the way.

For now, my prayer is God will be Cynthia’s assurance every morning, and her defender in the night.
