I just love the restfulness that is whispered so clearly from the simple things in life. Whether it's a walk through my garden, or meeting a friend for coffee, or a conversation at work, or sitting in an adjoining room and listening to my daughters laughing together. I just love it.
I met a friend yesterday for coffee and we talked for over two hours. She had worked behind me in the salon for 12 years and for 12 years I watched a gradual transformation happen in her that always inspired me. She asked me yesterday if I was aware that a year had passed since she had left our salon. It didn't seem possible. I'm glad she mentioned it though because it reminded me of something I had forgotten about. On her last day of working with us, I went home and sat at this computer and wrote a message for her with the intentions of giving it to her at the year anniversary of her departure. I had totally forgot about it. When I arrived back home yesterday I pulled up the document and sent it to her. It was just a simple message of what her friendship means to me and how I saw the Spirit at work in her and the freedom that was available for us all to walk in. It really was about continuing to simplify our lives and to slow down.
Her response back to me this morning made the simple act of writing that message a year ago seem seem pretty significant....turns out it actually was.
You just never know what can happen from such simple acts of love towards others.
