FULL of excitement and gratitude! Today is the grand debut of my website... a culmination of my life's purpose, my talents, persistence, experience, and everything in life that delights me. I am so grateful for, and rather in awe of, everything that has led me to this point that I don't even know how to thank God, the universe, each person who has encouraged and supported me, properly! I'm ready to spill love and thankfulness out all over the place! That's a fine feeling. :)
I thought I'd share this piece of writing, authored by my daughter's friend, from the Reflections exhibit this past Tuesday. This is her response to the prompt The World Would Be a Better Place If....
The world would be a better place if people kept the openness and curiosity they had as children. If they followed their life-long childhood dream and didn't let fear overcome them.
The world would be a better place if adults would live to the moment and be enthusiastic about the little things.
The world would be a better place if adults kept an open mind and heart and used their imagination to guide them down the path of adulthood.
The world would be a better place if adults would have a positive outlook on life and if they loved who they are.
The world would be a better place if adults would trust their gut feeling and never doubt themselves.

Abby's hopes rang true to the core of my being, and Abby, I hope I'm an adult that lives into your words. And a shout out to Abby's beautiful mama, Becki. The world IS a better place because of you and your children, and the intentions you just shared with us!
