ETERNAL GRATITUDE FOR YOU…MY CUP RUNNETH OVER. January 29, 2015 This wasn’t my planned post for today, but I wanted to send you all a quick note of thanks for your text messages, Facebook comments, emails, Instagram likes/comments, phone calls, blog comments, private Facebook messages and the like. Truly, I don’t think there is a word that can encapsulate my gratitude for the outpouring of love I’ve received from all of you. Like, my cup runneth over…for real.The sheer volume and thoughtfulness of your responses is the personification of a gift that is exceedingly and abundantly more than I could ask or think. I am overwhelmed by your support. And the stories of challenge and triumph that have been shared. And that MY life could be a source of inspiration to ANYONE, which is the greatest blessing of all. At the end of my post, I talked about what I hoped my words would remind you but make no mistake–everything in that post was really about me standing up, in a very public way, for something I have been trying to build up the courage to acknowledge & accept for along time. And since I have chosen to put a certain part of my life on display because of my business, I think it only makes sense to share my life in a way that displays the wide spectrum of what’s going on in my world–the design stuff AND the non-design stuff: my thoughts, experiences, intentions, the God-stuff and…my developing love life. 😉 In the meantime, I just want to let each of you know this:That by reaching out with your comments, likes, calls & messages, you have, in effect, stood as a witness to MY story. To my pain but more importantly, my growth. And in this way, you have given ME a gift that is more powerful than I can convey. Because truly, I think I can speak for us all when I say that all we ever really want is for our lives to be seen, heard & acknowledged. So truly, sincerely & deeply–thank you for being my witnesses.You have seen me, heard me & acknowledged me.And in that, you have done more than I could ever ask.

Darcel January 29, 2015 at 11:03 am (4 years ago) You know, you really should consider writing a book. Maybe not an autobiography, but an inspirational one. I think you have a great way of expressing yourself, not only through your design work, but most importantly through your words. Reading through the comments from your last post it is clear that you are loved and respected. That in and of itself may be the biggest blessing of all. Keep it going and God bless.
