Thank You. Those 2 words when placed next to one another can be so powerful. I really feel those words can’t be said, written or expressed enough in our world. This post is meant to be a thank you to all of you–for reading the blog, following along, sending e-mails, saying kind words in person, sending notes. From Boston to Brisbane, Berkeley to Bangkok, to right across the lake in Bellevue, and so many other places and from so many kind folks, I have received such incredibly heartfelt words of thanks. That the daily posts brought inspiration, a smile, thought, happiness, connection. I have been asked often over this close to 5 years since I started writing each morning, why I do it. I think each and every one of us has something unique & special in our lives to share, along with so many different avenues in which to do so. In ways big and small. For me writing each day to you all is a way of sharing a thought, idea, flower, quote, shop good, recipe–whatever inspires me at that moment. It is about sharing, making us all, myself included, aware of all the beauty that is around us each and every moment. We just have to see it, be aware of it, be thankful for it. Life can throw at us all sorts of not good things. These things can at times outweigh or dampen the ability to see the good. My hope is that the post each day is a reminder of that good & beauty in our world. Again, in ways both big and small. I find it such an honor to be part of a moment of your day. Your kindness along the way has always been such an inspiration to me. For that, I say, thank you, to you.
