OK...I know I often discuss blessings here...all kinds and maybe too often for some. I could be accused of beating the proverbial "dead horse" when it comes to expressing my gratitude for those blessings.
Well...prepare yourself and the poor horse...cause the beating is about to commence!
For me...it is necessary to express my gratitude frequently! You know...despite the amazing things I experience on a regular basis...I at times, forget..lose sight....lose my way...and get lost in my drama...forgetting the amazing and focusing on the overwhelming!
Tonight...I was reminded of the amazing! Reminded of the beauty of a long time friendship...the resilience of that friendship and the comfort and ease with which it flows!
I was reminded that I have strength behind me!
Also, I was reminded of the amazing gifts that come with new friendship...the blessing that comes from connecting on a heart level...a soul level that kinda defies explanation!!
Over the past year+, I have experienced deepening relationships with some of my oldest friends. I have reconnected with friends from my younger years...I have have been blessed by brief...but meaningful encounters with complete strangers that touched my heart AND I have had the opportunity to experience the joy of being part of new friendships that have changed my heart permanently-for the better!
I think anyone who reads this blog knows that Kerri has been one of those people for me...someone that deeply touched my heart and that I felt an immediate connection with...Bless her heart...I have told her that from the beginning...so much for boundaries! I adore her and tell her as often as I can!!
However...during the same time frame...I have had the honor of being blessed with another one of those once in a lifetime...heart changing friendships...my sweet friend Camille. ..who interestingly enough has a very sweet spirit much like my sweet Kerri Lee! And Again...I adore her and tell her often!
Both of these friendships have further deepened my appreciation for the depth of God's Infinite Love and how He divinely places the perfect pieces to guide me through this Journey.
I AM BLESSED! SERIOUSLY!!!
Over my 46 years on this earth...God has given me the opportunity to experience love in so many different ways....through so many wonderful peeps...so many nuances...so many precious moments!
This Journey has been a virtual cornucopia of unbelievable gifts...sweet moments...mind blowing opportunities and loads of patience, kindness and love!
All of you have put up with all of my emotional exuberance...my deep need to share and overshare!! :)
I spent many years being reticent in sharing my deepest feelings...part of this Journey is about dispelling the fear and living the love...even if I seem like a giant mushy mess!
Tonight my friend Camille gave me an incredibly thoughtful lovely gift...she made me cry...I loved it! And there is no gift more precious than getting to be her friend!
Again...my heart is FULL! OVERFLOWING!!
My cup runneth over!
Here is a pic of my gift from C! Inspiration to Conquer those Waves and Go Deep!
