I recently celebrated my 41st birthday and I had a wonderful weekend with friends and my family in Shanghai. I also heard from people all around the world. I received so many thoughtful messages. Incredible. Connecting with people and keeping in touch brings me a lot of joy. I am thankful to have met each and every one of you throughout our journey and have so many wonderful memories…..from my teaching time in England, to Glenn and I moving around North America every couple of years and now, China. Thanks for keeping in touch and being part of our lives.
I received a beautiful compliment the other day when a friend of mine replied to a comment I made on Facebook. She referred to me as her “intrepid friend”. Intrepid is not a word that I use and I had to think of what that actually meant. So I did what I always do when faced with this situation…..I asked Siri for the definition of ‘intrepid”. (I just love that woman!) When the words “fearless” and “adventuresome” popped up, I was over come with emotion. I don’t always feel fearless, although I am working on that with varying degrees of success :-), but it felt really nice to have someone view me like that. So thank you, Becky. You just never know when words of kindness can really resonate with someone. I’m thankful to have met you during your visit to Newfoundland and love getting to know your beautiful family through your photos.
So to my intrepid friends…be fearless and adventuresome and dauntless. Those are great adjectives to live by. I’m having a lot of fun. I love you and want to thank you for loving us. We have a beautiful life and the incredible people we connect with along the way really do sustain us.
41 is pretty fabulous so far! Thanks again for the wishes…..they meant the world to me.
And in case you needed a reminder…😂😂😂
