thank you dear friend

thank you dear friend

Hello dear friend,

We may have never met.  I may not know your name or may have never seen your face.  But there you are on the other side of the screen and for that I am grateful.  Here I am in NJ cozied up in my little apartment and through this wondrous screen we have the opportunity to connect.  You may be far away but here we are together in this space.  

Thank you for being here.  For showing up and reading my words.  Thank you for the support you give, the love you share, and for your wide open heart that brings so much light to my world.  I am grateful for you dear reader.

When I began my blogging journey I had no idea what would unfold.  All I knew is that I was drawn to this medium and excited to explore it.  In May I will have been blogging for ten years, yes ten years.  Wow!  Some of you have been with me from the start and for that I am beyond grateful and in complete awe.  

My wish for the future is to connect more deeply with you.  To hear your stories, write brave words alongside you, and explore the ways we can make this ordinary life extraordinary.  I want to see your smiling face in person and give you a great big hug.  

My hope is that I inspire you to explore your own story and live with your heart wide open.  I hope my words open you up and make you see that you are not alone.  Each of us are traveling our own paths but as human beings we are connected on our journeys.    

I want you to know that who you are and what you do matters.  The world needs YOU, yes YOU exactly as you are.  So lift your head up to the sky and say a great big yes to living boldly.  

Thank you for YOU.  Thank you for being here.  Thank you for all the love and light you shine in this world. I am so grateful our paths have crossed and look forward to digger deeper with you.   

all my love
