I received an email from my niece today -
In the subject matter it said ‘lucky you’ –
In the email there was nothing to read just a link to click on –
I clicked –
I watched –
My day was instantly brightened -
And then I sent her an email back telling her I was going to bed now and that she must be sure to call and wake me on the day it is released –
Starting tonight, it’s 130 sleeps until April 4 –
Anyone who knows me will confirm that 13 is my lucky number –
Getting an email like this makes me feel very lucky – that someone took a moment out of their busy day to brighten mine – that’s a special kind of lucky –
Click here with your volume up, to see why I am feeling so lucky!

I have been struggling with what to post. I have been struggling with how to shift from the previous post to a new post.

My father in law’s passing, combined with the whole process and experience of getting my mom through her post-surgery journey have been nothing less than daunting. In an on-liine conversation with Angel recently, she asked me how we were all doing. I told her that we were trying our best to make our way through and adjusting to what is now a new normal for all of us.

Change can be difficult, especially when you don’t see it coming and when the impact of it all takes you by surprise.

Today however, I came here with a greater sense of ease than on any other day since my last post.

I came here and it seems appropriate to be here to say THANK YOU.

This is a THANK YOU specifically for YOU … my friend in blog land – as YOU, yourself read this. If you have left me a comment, then it is YOU and your words that I thank for the comfort you provided.

If it is YOU who has been here and not left a comment, I hope you will feel motivated to let me know you were here so that I can know it is YOU I am thanking.
In today’s Notes from the Universe, I got this inspirational message:
~ Do you know how to give folks what they most, most, most want from you, Dawn, without even asking them what it is?
In all regards, just be yourself.
That's what they were after when they manifested you into their lives.
Whoa! The Universe ~

I give thanks to, and for - YOU.
