Saying Goodbye to Internet Radio

"There are no little events in life, those we think of no consequence may be full of fate, and it is at our own risk if we neglect the acquaintances and opportunities that seem to be casually offered, and of small importance."
~Amelia Barr

Do you ever think about the people in your life? The above quote was on the back of Kim's business card, a painter I met at Home Depot who sparked a conversation because he thought I looked like an old girlfriend's sister. We talked as though we had known each other our whole lives and I wondered why this moment had presented itself. As I was leaving, he said to be sure and check out the website on his card www.allencarrseasyway.com
that helped people quit smoking. My prayers for that week had been to make my son's cigarette habit disappear. Our conversation seemed divinely guided and I was glad I allowed him space to chat. Are we a society that thanks the unseen world for the people who come for a season, a lifetime or just thirty minutes while the paint gets mixed? Do you go day to day without noticing and thinking nothing is for you?
As I reflect on my friends, I say thank you to Wendy. She came into my life to breathe just enough air to spark a fire so that I would remember to write. For one year, we met and interviewed the most amazing people on Conscious Living www.talkshoe.com. but lately, I started to feel like a duck out of water. My place is no longer with the show and I will be moving on to concentrate on my art projects and creative writing. Looking at the bigger picture, I now know Wendy and I were gifts for each other to last a season. She awakened my desire for words and I stuck with her with true blueness. Now she stands better alone, knowing I will always be there and I am once again, grateful for divine intervention with another friend.

Who breathes on your dreams? Pay very close attention for there are no little events in life!
