in our world. It's so seldom we take the time to appreciate what others do for us and use our ability with words to build up or reaffirm someone else's contributions to our lives. I just received a beautiful thank you letter from a new member that joined our writer's WORDshop, It was so unexpected and came with some lovely cinnamon rolls that I have been craving after being sick so long and drooling over Dawn's rolls she posted on her blog not once but twice. Here's the letter I received:
A hurried thank you as we left the Writers Wordshop at your home wasn't enough to tell you what meeting you has meant to me during these past two months. You have thrown me a lifeline and shown me how to live that life more fully. You have shown me that I can write something of value. And I am grateful beyond the telling. Please enjoy these sweet rolls...along with my fondest wishes for you that your life will produce all the great things of which you are capable...and we will see your work in print 'ere long.
Fondly a friend, Marilyn C
How sweet of Marilyn who is very busy caring for her husband who has health problems to thank me as her teacher/faciliator. I hope she'll continue her self discovery through writing that we all need for our own health and growth. Let's continue to support each other in living our lives to the fullest in what ever media or way that requires...I appreciate my writing group and all we are learning together and the friendships that have developed. We will publish a book at the end of this year of our works called "Voices from the Desert."
