I wrote this awhile back and thought I would share it with you...

"I was asked recently why I say blessings so often when I sign off and see the world as I do. I am sure the story of it has many beginnings, avenues that converge onto this life of exuberance. I could never know all those amazing streets again. The ones filled with tingling excitement, the rain-filled gutters washing with sound, the ones with light-streaming ribbons forming arrows through the leaves above, as they softly whisper, "Notice, notice."

I have fallen into delight with living, with seeing, with all that is this journey. The closest thing to expressing this feeling is in the book, Out of the Blue. There was a point a few years back, even before finding this book, that I realized that "I do not only belong to me."

As said in Out of the Blue, "We are each a thread in the tapestry of life, and without your gifts, your weaving of your own thread, the tapestry will be incomplete."

So, my thread has many blessings, of which I am ever aware, of which I will always remember, and as I get up each day and thread my needle, I choose the gilded, never-ending, thread. The thread that helps someone smile because maybe for them, it was soft and strong that moment they met me on the sidewalk. Or maybe it was sparkling when the day seemed devoid of light. Your choosing as you rummage through your thread box could mean all the difference, not just to someone else, but, it always will end in a day well spent, mended, softer, more inviting, glorified. Giving of yourself, giving blessings, to all you encounter, this does not lessen the color of your lot. Living with vivid exuberance maybe the only thing that replenishes the spirit of your story, clears and makes splendid the paths of your life. "Remember that your glow is never a threat to their glow, just to their darkness. You may actually be able to dispel their darkness with your light. Their negativity may have become a strait jacket of the spirit, limiting their perceptions... Personal blessings are a form of delight and a perfect way to spread delight to others in your life regardless of their receptivity. Hold the image of the person in your mind, and using the person's name, say, 'I bless you and see the best in you.' The person does not even need to know that you are sending blessings their way..."

What a thread to weave in... what a gift to yourself and the person you are caring about...

So, this is what I mean, this is a glimpse into what I mean, when I say, "Remember you are the writer of your own story. You are the creator of your own faerytale happy ending..." It is your thread, pick it up, enjoy the process and know that it all lies before you, a comforting blanket on a blissful cool porch, waiting to be found. This delight, it lays before you waiting to be found...

Dear Amy, I'm sure there is a reason that this post is the first I saw this morning. I am so glad you shared it with us – it encapsulates and celebrates all that you are and do – not just sharing beauty and wisdom, but actually nurturing beauty and wisdom that is inherent in others, in a world that needs it sorely, by validating and encouraging the goodness and greatness in each. Your philosophy of being and existing is stated here so poetically and perfectly that all I can say is, again, how much it means to know you. love and blessings to YOU. – g (p.s. there's that tingle again!)

Hi Amy
I don't know what led me to your post this morning, but as always - you hit me with exactly what I needed to hear today! I just came off an ugly encounter with a 'toxic' friend and this post really spoke to me. "I bless you and see the best in you!" I have to do this. So powerful, and thank you for bringing my glow back to me!!!

Sweet Amy,

This is the most beautiful blog post I've read in many many weeks. It touches my heart and "yes" it speaks to me.

I thank you for giving us the opportunity to remember that we touch many lives with our light ~ sometimes never knowing the brightness we have left behind in our happy wake.

I appreciate your post and will take it to heart for many days to come. Thank you for brightening my days.

Have a wonderful weekend.

xo Cathy
