Overflowing With Gratitude – Loving Kindness in Action Followed by Quaking and Rolling

March 20 2020

Overflowing with gratitude for a beautiful human who made a grocery store run for us. I went grocery shopping last week BEFORE the craziness began, and it was just a regular weekly trip. So, we were running out of things.

Except for walks, we’ve not left the house since Saturday. Lillian has a weak immune system so best to stay home. Incredibly grateful for your kindness, Constance Aguilar!!! Team TLC thanks you!!!

And … how about an earthquake to go along with dinner tonight? Sure …

It was big for this area (5.0), but, I don’t think there was damage anywhere. It’s just the most unsettling feeling. It always takes me a bit to get my equilibrium settled. Lillian felt it the most, Thomas didn’t feel a dam* thing (HA!), and I felt it, but what got my attention was the loud noise the 3 big windows in the living room made! Hugs to you!! xoxo

Thank you Toilet Paper Faeries!! Who knew there were faeries for TP? Well, there are and we are grateful to all of you. We’re also good with toilet paper now. Deeply grateful and incredibly blessed by your thoughtfulness and kindness. 🙏♥️♥️♥️🙏 A photo of the sky as I chatted with the faeries.

**Update April 4, 2020: We’ve had another trip to Trader Joe’s by different friend, in addition to using Insta Cart. We are incredibly thankful and deeply blessed.

Let Them Know They Are Loved


October 8 2012:

After she had just shown me EVERY Mardi Gras costume she has designed, made herself and worn in New Orleans at Mardi Gras since 1992; I said to her, “YOU are a talented woman! What do you do? Are you a designer?”

She got quite, her eyes welled with tears and I could feel the hurt and pain. She went on to explain that she has an MBA and things just haven’t lined up how she wants … she’s in limbo … she hasn’t made any money in a long time. She’s disappointed in herself …..

I instantly felt a connection with her. Those who know me, know why. I touched her arm and her heart, looked her in the eye and said YOU Are an Amazing and Talented Woman, What you Want WILL happen … I shared some of my story with her and gave her one of my books. When it was time to go, I gave her a big hug and repeated what I had said earlier. I could have changed the subject right after I asked the question that brought her to tears. I could have. I chose not too. I chose to let this woman know that she is loved, that she is perfect and that she is worthy.

We have a choice when we come across these moments …. We have a choice … Let others know they are loved … No matter what … xoxo
