I am so very blessed. I try not to forget this in my everyday life; I frequently say thanks and tell those in my life how much I appreciate them; however, recently my blessing have had a very physical manifestation.
This past month it was made very clear to me how much I am loved and how very fortunate I am to have such wonderful, caring and loving people in my life.
I used to think that everyone else was lucky to have me in their lives – I’m smart, funny, witty and a great listener. 🙂 Now I fully believe that the opposite is true. I am the lucky one. I’ve had more people reach out to me than I ever expected.
And it wasn’t out of obligation, either!
I heard from people that genuinely cared! I heard from people that I new in high school, people that I knew when I moved out of the house for the first time. Mentors that have been there for me since I started in the industry and I heard from the friends I have today. It was amazing. I mean, I know I’m loved, who wouldn’t love me, right? (Okay, there are a few, but I think it’s a defect in them, they must be missing the right gene!)
I wanted to just take a minute and not brag or boast, but to tell everyone thanks. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for being there for me, for reaching out. For all of the well-wished, cards, text messages, emails, phone calls and flowers, thank you.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I’m blessed and my cup runneth over.
So, feel free to just put You’re Welcome in the comments box, cause you know I’m talking about all of you guys, too! (And notice that it’s totally against my nature to be so mushy, so I had to throw in some e-cards to lighten the mood!)
