reflecting and sending a big thank you

out of all the flowers, dresses, weddings, advice and recipes i’ve posted, monday’s post about bullying was one that really resonated with all of you, and i wanted to say thank you.

thank you for the comments, for the emails, and for the messages on facebook.

thank you to the kids from my hometown (yes i can still say kids even though we’re all 30) who read the post and were able to share with me their own experiences (and some responded with surprise, not knowing these things were going on).

thank you to my college friends for being the wonderful “family away from home” to make some of the experiences i had that much more tolerable.

thank you to one of those bullies for now being my friend. forgiveness is almost as important as the kindness factor, if you can find it in your heart.

but most importantly, thank you for taking action.

kindness is more than just signing up for a number, it is shown in the actions we choose to make every day. remember, you never ever know what someone else is going through until you’ve lived in their shoes.

so this weekend, do something nice. it might not mean much to you, but to the recipient will mean more than you know.

happy friday, everyone.
