I have a lot to be thankful for this month!  I first want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes, cards, texts, emails, messages, homing pigeons, clinks of glasses and more for my Birthday.  Last Sunday I turned 22 X 2 and for so many reasons this birthday was amazing beyond all my wishes which I will share.   First off the cards……..hilarious, special and pure fun………


I think my parent’s card really hit home with my Word of the Year……Believe


I received such special gifts from friends…….


and this lovely Origami Owl necklace personally designed and selected for me by Nichole Lewno!  She put all the items that mean so much to me.  If you are looking for a GREAT Origami Owl rep than Nichole is your girl.  They are great for gifts!

I was given so many things but the thing that meant the most was time…..time with my family, my friends and sharing my special day with my loved ones.  I have so much more to share about this day but for now I want to just say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.  As every message came in that day all I kept thinking about was all this time we have we cross so many people’s paths.  You may impact them in a big or small way but it made me feel so good to take that path and remind myself you just never know when you will make a difference.  But sometimes………..time is your greatest gift.

In the digital age we live in it’s all too easy to fall into the trap of sustaining our relationships through digital means only.  Although it’s nice that technology is making the world smaller and making remote relationships easier to manage, nothing can replace the intimacy of physical human connectedness.  Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a hug, a handshake, a kind pat on the back, a listening ear in a shared space, or the smallest act of caring for someone close by, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
