The last “unofficial” day of summer.
There’s not much I can write today that hasn’t been said already…
I’m sad to see summer go.
I’m sad that a friend left our world way too soon.
I’m anxious over the massive “to do list” that begins tomorrow.
However, I am also grateful.
Grateful for the memories I made and experiences I had this summer, and for LOCAL SUMMER, which begins tomorrow.
Grateful that my friend is no longer in pain. Grateful for how his story has brought so many of us together, strengthening our bond, and for the memories that bring a smile to my face. Grateful for a new role model in his incredibly strong wife.
Grateful that I have a “to do list,” giving me purpose and focus.
Most of all, I am grateful for the person I found this summer. She’s no longer afraid to share her story. She’s no longer on the outside. She’s on the right path, right where she needs to be. She knows the importance of NOW.
She is me. And I’m finally here.
I am looking forward to continue sharing my story with you, and hope you will join me for the journey yet to come.
Until next time,
