The Tapestry of Life or Something Like That

February 20 2018:

Mailing this today reminded me of the stories about the tapestry of life … something like how one action leads to another, to another and they are all connected.

Barbara Hranilovich and I met online back in 2007. I asked her to blog for a website I owned at the time. She did and her articles were incredibly informative and just plain good.

I suggested she make the articles into a book as each article was about being an entrepreneur and each was paired with a letter of the alphabet. I’m pretty sure that was already Barb’s line of thinking as months later, after I had abandoned the blog, I received a book in the mail, titled “E is for Entrepreneur”.

Barb had created a book from the articles and I didn’t even know until she mailed me the finished product. Barb had included me in her gratitude list in the book and hand wrote a note that the book would never have happened without me.

However, I did not see the note or my name on the gratitude list as it came when I was packing. It was put into a box and I came across it a year or so later ….. when I was trying to figure out the style of my book.

It was exactly what I needed to receive, see, and find to shine the light on how my book was to be written. Hence, “D iz for Different – One Woman’s Journey to Acceptance”.

And, I didn’t tell Barb about it at all. I simply mailed her a book when it was finished with a similar message that she had written to me.

Side note: Barb loves fairies. Years ago she mailed Lillian a fairy book Barb had illustrated, plus a fairy house we keep hanging on our wall.

Now, today, I mailed her a book of fairy tales written by Lillian Darnell!

And we’ve never met in person …. Beautiful, magical, and wonderful tapestry of life …. xoxo
