I received some good news today...I took a tiny step closer towards a dream of mine. A little slice of success. But this post is not about sharing that news yet....I do not want to blog about it until it's closer to being a tangible part of this world. This post is about a person who helped me take that step.
I wrote about her once before. But I feel the need to do so again, because I know, in the very core of my being, that I had not met her, if she had not graced with me such a wonderful friendship, that my life would be very different today. That dreams would still just be dreams...something hazy in the distant land of maybe and someday.
Many of us have people in our lives who encourage us. Who bring honesty, sincerity and a sense of what's genuine into our lives. Who are always rootin' for us. My friend is all of those things and more. She exuded such belief in me and in my abilities that it compelled me to face my fears, to ignore my doubt and to do the one thing we all need to do to get that much closer to our dreams...her belief in me made me try. And I will never, with all the words of the English language at my disposal, be able to articulate to her how much that means to me....what she means to me.
And when I arrived home from work today, after sharing my good news with her this morning, I found a wonderful bouquet of tulips waiting for me. A message of congratulations from my friend. Buds still....on the edge of blooming...like me, I hope. Her thoughtfulness and unabashed enthusisam over my good news touched me in a way that I will remember in my heart forever.
My friend, b&g girl, is also a fellow blogger. She is relatively new to the scene. I encourage all of you to visit her blog and get to know a little piece of this wonderful person. I have never met anyone like her...nor do I ever expect to again. She was a driving force behind the creation of Finding Sirius...and her wisdom and humor helped to forge my incredible bond with Sophie.
And to you, b&g girl...there are friends and then there is you. One of the best parts of my story is you.
