Aloha Beautiful One! 


How goes your summer?  Or maybe it’s more like, there summer goes :-) Yes it’s flying by for me & my family too.


I haven't written since June and honestly, it's a challenge to write you just one monthly enews because so much happens each precious day.  Sometimes I don't know where to start.  Can you relate?  


Especially with Robin William's death recently, I've found that people everywhere can't just do "small talk" any more.  Even before Robin Williams recent passing, conversations & connections with folks this summer seemed realer & deeper. 


So here are just a few sweet things that everyday people have said to me...golden nuggets for happy living: 


Tom (Muscley Manicurist) - "We have to be the change we want to see & love people where they are."  


Kai (my 3 yr old) - "Mommy...please don't get so angry."  Okay, I say, then I breathe, smile & see what the next moment has to offer.


Crystal (Verizon tech on the phone) - "I know God has got my back & I am happier than I've ever been."  Referring to her recent divorce, new start in Phoenix & joy in being a mom to 6 kids


 Luke (Our young plumber) - "I love my job...I just keep growing, getting better each day."


Rachel (Sassy lil' Zumba instructor - Vietnamese accent & all) - "Don't hold it all in.  Reach out for help, babies." on Robin William's recent death


Mailbox/Copy Machine Guy from Nepal - "Why worry or fret?  Just take it moment by moment & all will be fine" in regards to his 1st baby about to be born & the fact that they have no family here, they’re all in Nepal


Me to myself - "This is the BEST time ever!" as I looked around the park at the concert-goers, many who I met in person, before I got on the stage & performed w/ no sleep, no luggage, no shower - straight from my delayed flight.  And I meant it!  Somehow losing my luggage & all my travel misadventures to Michigan, freed me up to just be present with the moment & the precious people who came. 


Trader Joe's Clerk - "It's all about the fun!"


And so much more...all I can say is - enjoy the ride, enjoy the people on the ride (even the grumpy ones), and enjoy YOU along the way!  If not...I'm coming for ya...haha!



Here's to "big talk" & real connections!


Bliss-filled hugs,


Faith
