This Beautiful Tapestry


“You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.”

As I spend time off-line, healing and completely off my normal routine, something struck me and I just HAD to share.  You have NO idea how grateful I am to each and every one of who stop by, maybe leave a comment, share a joke, breath-taking photos,share about your hobbies, your lives, your hearts.  In turn, I get to go look at your blog…

I am so grateful to each and every one of you.  I’m looking at this beautiful tapestry of lives being woven together in front of me and all I can do is stand in silent awe, my heart an endless well of gratitude.  Your stories, your character, your sharing life-changing truths, laughter and tears, and experiences are all shaping my life in a most beautiful way.

I just wanted to say thank you.  You’re making a difference in my life, and I am grateful.  🙂 

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.”
