#40Notes40Days: Someone you’ve seen transform!

Well, Well, Well Bestie…. Saving the best for last, I suppose. Sarah- A blog post to you, about you could not possibly execute the idea and the meaning behind it appropriately.  Though, I’m going to try! As I reflect on where I could possibly start, it is clear to me, that I no longer rememberContinue reading “#40Notes40Days: Someone you’ve seen transform!”

#40Notes40Days: Someone Who Walked with you Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death!

Paul- There could be no other person for me to write this letter to.  For 4 years and 8 months you have been by my side.  Some would say that isn’t very long.  To them I say that is longer than any other person has, romantically. In that time you have endured the wrath, theContinue reading “#40Notes40Days: Someone Who Walked with you Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death!”

#40Notes40Days: Someone you once shared a great meal with!

Aunt Deb and Uncle Rick- When I was thinking about how all of these notes would go to, making sure that each letter went to someone different, it was very hard for me to come up with who this letter should go to. The thing is that when I think about great meals, I can’tContinue reading “#40Notes40Days: Someone you once shared a great meal with!”

#40Notes40Days: Someone who is a Peacemaker

Marsha- I was so lucky to have you as a minister for 8 years (I think) in my adult life.  In that time you opened my eyes and my world to how much we need to progress and transcend as a people in order to find peace in the world.  I know that you didContinue reading “#40Notes40Days: Someone who is a Peacemaker”

#40Notes40Days: Someone who works for Justice

Paul Perez- Well you are the first and most obvious person that came to mind when thinking about this topic.  You worked so passionately for JFON (Justice for Our Neighbors), something that you believe deeply in.  I know that even though you had to transition, you are still actively involved. “Paul Perez, who led theContinue reading “#40Notes40Days: Someone who works for Justice”

#40Notes40Days: Someone who does a Service for you

There are two people who came to mind with this topic and I will write to both of them. Melissa- Thank you for everything you do for my kids during the summer when you are home from school.  They look forward to spending time with you. 2 years ago, I panicked when I got aContinue reading “#40Notes40Days: Someone who does a Service for you”

#40Notes40Days: Someone Who Hurt You

  Jess- I am not sure where to start this letter. You came into my life as a stranger.  Someone who worked with my husband, who I ran into a couple of times.  A person who I was leary of and warned about from the start. I am not sure if I was naive, ifContinue reading “#40Notes40Days: Someone Who Hurt You”

#40Notes40Days: Someone who is a Good Dancer

Elise- You are the very first person that I thought of.  All of your beautiful pictures from your contra (I think?) dances.  I remember when you used to do a dance every once in awhile in church. I haven’t seen you dance very often at all, but all the pictures that you and your MomContinue reading “#40Notes40Days: Someone who is a Good Dancer”

#40Notes40Days: Someone who is a Mother-Figure

So here is the thing, since my own Mother is in my life….there is NO one else I could possibly write this note to. Mom- I know that I am a pain in the ass. I am so loud and so outspoken, so much different than you.  I know that at 35 years old, IContinue reading “#40Notes40Days: Someone who is a Mother-Figure”
