I couldn’t sleep this morning thinking about my to do list… you know how is goes…ok .. I gotta get this done, and oh yeah that leads to another list, etc, etc,…. I just wanted to sleep…it was 4:30 in the morning!… but when that happens (it does a lot for me) I try to quiet my mind and meditate and pray…. I just started going through a list of what I’m thankful for and who I am thankful for… and man,! what a list….. some days it just happens like that where you are so grateful for sooo much it just has to spill out… As I am preparing to do this series on being brave and courage, I am asking women to tell me there stories, it’s really exciting to see where we alllll have been and where we are now and where we are going. There are so many amazing stories but I was thinking about a particular friend that has inspired me…. where she has been and where she is now…. I wrote her a letter.. actually I wrote all of us a letter… then of course I started designing a piece specifically for that letter…. I love it when inspiration happens…. anyway…. I will be sharing that with you in the coming days…. I am soo grateful for all the amazing people in my life, for all that I have.. for the friendships, family, and love. Here is a letter to each of us….. ……………. Dear sweet soul, Look at where you have been and look at where you are… I am soo proud of you! You have had the courage to change, to grow, to not be held down by your circumstances. You have the courage to walk through fear and get to the other side. I know that life is sometimes not what we thought it would be, but my dear, LOOK at what you have accomplished… you are amazing! Don’t be so hard on yourself and give yourself a little love, no… a lot of love. You are worth it! You are a fabulous friend, sister, mother, daughter, grandma, niece, granddaughter and wife… YOU are enough!
so grateful……. Shawn
