My children have asked me why I've begun doing this blog thing. So here's my answer...
Recently, I read a quote by Bay Area-based artist and landscape design guru Topher Delaney. She faced and beat breast cancer and was asked by an interviewer about the experience. She said, "It’s important for people to know. Getting breast cancer was a gift from God. It opened my heart and made me understand that I have a gift. I am still alive, I believe, because my work is not done. Having cancer completely changed me. I have become very passionate about two things: being of service—and being awake to life."
I'm always looking for new things to share and in the process, I am grateful. And I hope I'm teaching my kids about being awake in their lives.
