I think it’s past time for me to pay props to an unexpected gift from the Universe. This all happened in an organic way, kind of like kismet or serendipity. However it happened, I was blessed and today during this time of year I am also grateful.
When I started writing last year during a difficult time I noticed someone reading that would comment on a regular basis. I loved reading the comments and they always had a humorous edge to them mixed with a softness and lots of admiration and love. Reading them made me feel good and made me think I was doing something special by sharing.
There were plenty of other folks that commented on my writing too, but the difference was that this lady commented consistently and always with the same intentions. Never once did she say make a judgement about how I could improve my behavior. Never has she ever made me feel petty, or small, or scolded. What she has made me feel is special. She is the peaceful calm in comments that I looked forward to after each grueling and heartbreaking post.
In life, you get lucky enough to feel the grace and the generosity of a person on rare occasions. To be given this gift without provocation, without reason and without expectations attached, is truly a mission in extinction. She participates only because she wants to and only because she can.
And I’ve never met her.
She has become my Guardian Angel of feedback.
To thank her, to show my appreciation and gratitude, seems pale in comparison to the magnitude of love she has shown me. I have no words. I have only love in my heart and I know she has seen it.
