To make a difference…

To know you make a difference means a lot.  This was shared by a dear friend and artist, Yvonne while I was away:

"Tonight I sat down and
doodled. I missed Tracy
and her class and did some Zendoodling. It's not my original work….I worked
off a 4-part series on YouTube. I thought of Tracy and all the inspiration
she's given to all of us every Monday night and decided to doodle. You can

A Facebook page, another group,

That's all it was no doubt.


I asked to join, to try and learn,


what this Mixed Media stuff was about.


Mixed Media Mondays was the name,


And I lurked and read each post.


I clicked on like as I tried to decide,


Which post I liked the most.


A Ustream class, I soon would discover,


And just had to go and see.


A user name I had to pick…


Well, Suzy 800 it came to be.


I joined each Monday to watch and learn,


and to Tracy I would listen.


Glue Mom and Dad, and then the Glue Dots,


What was this woman sniffin'?!


As I tuned in each week, to listen to her,


A new friend I was getting to know.


Her smile and her genuine love to share,


Was just within her & it would glow.


She has a way, of looking within,


And brings out the best in you.


She encourages and pushes, where she sees fit.


A rare talent that is shared by few.


My Mixed Media group, of three hundred plus,


i consider my family, I do.


So many good friends, I've come to know,


I'd not change out this crazy crew.


So Tracy, my friend, I have to say,


You're one in a million to me.


How do I say thanks, how do I repay,


What you've done for me, there's no fee.


I'll continue to watch, to learn and to play,


And one day I hope to greet.


This wonderful person who I've come to know,


Face to face…..one day we will meet.

Thank you Tracy for being who you are…….thank you for sharing what you do…..thank you for encouraging and pushing like you do.  You have a gift and I’m ever so grateful you’ve listened to your heart and do and share what you do.  You are a blessing."

I returned home to a package with her beautiful art, card and note….

 So I don't always know what I am doing, where I am going or what this all leads to but…….maybe you don't always need to know and just wait to see how it unfolds.  For now, I made a small difference.  Thank you Yvonne for sharing yourself, your art, and more.  There are so many who are afraid to do that.  You are not one of them!

So as I get back in gear with life I keep on doing what I do and love.  You never know when it may make a difference……

Tracy
"Within you there is a formidable and undeniable sense of purpose.  Happiness comes from making a solid and persistent connection to that purpose.  When your intentions are supported by a “why” that has meaning, you will find the “how” to bring them to life."
