Today I sit here at my computer thinking about what I am going to post about and I am thinking about all of you. Each one of you who take the time to visit, leave comments – or even visit without leaving a comment. It doesn’t matter to me how many comments I get; just the simple fact that you took a moment out of your busy day to visit is enough for me. So thank you for that. From my heart – thank you.
Through the past four years, I have made beautiful friendships with so many wonderful women from all over the world – and I could never have done that without this blog. Each one of you are so special – special in your very own way. Like a rose – similar yet so uniquely different. Beautifully layered with talents, love, inspiration and life.
The other day I was looking at the stats on Site Meter because I am curious to see who is visiting and where visitors live. I found several referral links from a blog that was unfamiliar to me. I clicked on the blog and I froze. I said out loud, “Oh my goodness” and as I read the post, I just wept. A total stranger did a post about me.
I was so, so, so honored to say the very least! Totally caught off guard by a total stranger’s act of kindness! And there was Duhgall, front and center of the photos she had shared of my home. That made me giggle! Little Doogie boy – sitting there smack dab amongst vignettes of cottagey do-dads!
What took my breath away at the end of the post was this photo that had written below it “For Becky’s son, Jordan.” (Constanza, Jordan is smiling down on you right now!) Pardon me as I wipe my tears off of the keyboard right now……
The beautiful blog is written by Constanza – a vivaciously spirited woman who now lives in California but once called England and Chile her home. Her blog is titled Por Amor Al Art and there Constanza shares about her passion to paint, travel, create and garden. She has two gorgeous children, Tatiana and Jon, who are the center of her universe.
Constanza’s home is beautiful and full of wonderful collections that she has gathered in her travels and time living abroad. She has an eye and a heart to collect beautiful vintage treasures that we all love so much.
Constanza, thank you for touching my heart so deeply. You are a beautiful angel! I am blessed so richly today because of you.
I have said this before, yet I will say it again..
You are precious rays of sunshine. Each of you. The world is better because of you.
Shining rays of light.
Full of life and love.
Perfect in your own way.
May the sun shine on you a little brighter today.
