An Anniversary Full of Hopes

Today is my blogging anniversary......two years!  I can't believe I have written this blog for two years and that you the faithful have read them.  Life has been a roller  coaster, full of ups and downs and curves I never expected.  The April 27th tornadoes hit, the loss of friends and family,
dealing with my disease......what can I say.......I have just been living like all of you the past two years.

I never expected to still be blogging......but it has been such a wonderful gift for me.  Sharing words and feelings, sometimes a photo.....making it through the good and the bad, just like everyone else every day.  My heart is full of gratitude that I am able to share my thoughts on yoga, music, and life with each of you.  I thank you for reading my words, for sending comfort and kindness when I needed it.

I hope in some small way, I have helped you.  I hope in some way, I have touched your heart, and maybe encouraged you to look at life a little differently.  I hope that your day has been a little brighter because of something I said and maybe on days when your glass was half empty, it became a  little fuller.

I hope that you see the beauty in some of the things I see, that you see the good that I see all around us, I hope you think of yoga in a different light, and that every once in awhile, you think about walking barefoot.  I hope you have given more hugs, smelled more flowers, and gazed in wonder (and howled) at the full moon.  I hope you have taken more breaths, and spent more moments in silence.  I hope you have been kinder to yourself, more loving to your body.

I hope you have smelled honeysuckle,  gardenias and peonies......and eaten a fresh tomato.
I hope you have felt warm breezes and gentle rain......I hope you know that I wish and hope only good things for all of you.  Thanks for reading my blog.
