From the first time I spoke to you in my timid, broken and recently suicidal place I knew you were a Light for my soul to follow.
I never imagined I would be a privileged and forever humbled person who would be allowed to call you friend.
My first encounter with you reminded me of all the good things I had suppressed in my life. I looked at only the brokenness and the darkness.
You became for me a sense of Hope. Everyday common-sense things I knew and heard all my life would begin to take on a special meaning: they would pertain to me also.
Since my first encounter with you, I have learned so much to help me along in my daily travel through this life.
Each day I learn encouragement, parenting tips, how to solve problems, marriage and relationship advise, how to become an entrepreneur and put myself out there in a positive way.
Enough said. You are my “life-saver”, my teacher, friend, sister and coach.
I see in you the self-confidence, self-belief and courage it takes for people like me to be drawn to you. Each individual that comes into contact with you with an open heart will receive a warm feeling, a smile that says, “you too are special” and the confidence to believe in themselves–even if only a little–it’s a start. You have a special ability to ” shift” a person’s mind from being afraid/shy into a mind-set of confidence, positivity, and good morality.
Your aspirations for each of us to be a success in life is a challenge for each of us to do better.
You are a great leader who doesn’t find it necessary to minimalize yourself in order to make the world a better place.
Simply put–I love you my friend.
Thank you forever!!!!
