Thanks for sharing in my joy!!
You are loved.
"This too shall pass." These four words have helped me get through some of the most challenging times in life, and they are my favorite four words. Whenever I am facing an uncertainty or fear that seems too difficult to solve, I often ask one of my friends to quote my favorite four words. After hearing it the first time, I ask for the phrase to be repeated, and then I ask for it to be repeated one more time. By the third time the other person has told me this, I truly believe that the other person believes that it will pass.
This gives me hope and (either quickly or slowly) I will come to believe, too, that it will pass. After I fully believe that it will pass, the situation has changed from being a problem into a source for the solution. The real gift is getting to share this with others when they are going through a challenge or conflict.
My goal for many years has been to encourage others to hope and to not give up, and this is one of my ways for accomplishing that.
You are loved.
Dream, dream, dream; then, follow your dreams
into reality. They can become treasures to share
with others--to begin new dreams of their own.
Dreams, Feelings, and Encouragement:
These three words are the focus of my website.
I really, really enjoy observing and following
the DREAMS that materialize for others.
Expressing our FEELINGS truly enhances
the depth of genuine friendship.
ENCOURAGING others is a treasured
gift to both the giver and the receiver.
Prior to having my own website, it was only
the beginning of a dream--until Roger
(mentioned in my "Turtle Story") encouraged
me to make it happen. Ever since 1998 this
website continues to be a reality and my
dream is continuing to unfold.
Encouragement is a gift that really works.
It's been a joy sharing this process with you.
I sincerely encourage YOU to follow your dreams:
into reality and beyond.
Tears of joy are included within the pages of my website,
and they have been instrumental in creating this website.
Tears are definitely a form of healing and cleansing.
If you experience these tears (that gently spill),
it is my intent that they be fully experienced as:
"TEARS OF JOY."
