I hear this response, in your voice, in my head, almost every time something wonderful happens. On the flip side, you are also the friend I go to when something not-so-wonderful happens. Your love is big and full. You celebrate our (ALL of our) wins, and you mitigate the pain of our losses. In many ways you are the burden bearer in our tribe. I see you doing it in our greater community as well. I admire your strength, and I am humbled by your constant love. I am in awe of your internal compass, and the fact that you constantly walk in the direction in which it points you. YOUR ACTIONS ARE LOUDER THAN YOUR WORDS!
I am thankful that I now find myself surrounded by a tribe of loving, talented, ambitious, courageous, non-pretentious women, because you brought me into your world. Over the past 8 years, I have felt your warmth and love in big ways. You’ve been present for my big moments, organized celebrations, counseled, consoled, and spread your witchy wonder all over my life. You’ve made me part of your family, and I will never take that for granted. I love you. Thank you.
