Hope is a Journey….

Through Thick and Thin….

To all of my friends who have rejoiced, celebrated, struggled, screamed, laughed, raged, and wept in the face of losing “Normal” – you are amazing, incredible, inspiring, and uplifting.  Even in our darkest moments while we are struggling to find our new “Normal” – we are able to hold on to the one thing that matters…our friendship.

It doesn’t matter what the journey is, what matters is that we walk it together.

We can’t dictate the path that lies ahead of us, but we can choose how we view the path.

To see the people you love face a serious battle is truly heartbreaking – and often, when the going gets tough….people start to disappear.

I think that one of the most beautiful things in this world is to be a witness as the beauty of true friendship and unconditional love blossoms.

So here’s to all of you folks out there who have stuck by a friend in need…no matter how hard or long the road is.

You can’t truly appreciate the good times without enduring the bad times….and yet, in the bad times (yes, even the worst of times), there is something to be said about finding a way to still rejoice in the precious moments that shimmer like a diamond in the rough.

This post is a tribute to all the friends in my life (in photographs and not in photographs) who have stuck by me through it all.

You have no idea what it means to me to know I have such amazing people in my life.  I honestly don’t think words could ever even begin to describe the depth of my gratitude and love towards you all.

AND…to my dear friends…what can I say?  You all are so incredibly special, so unique…SO worth sticking by…through thick and thin.

No matter how tough the road ahead gets…’All you need to know is….I’m never gonna go…..away. ‘

Love and Light,

    Thanks Stefani …. wish we lived closer. But extra glad I met you in person. God Bless you and your family. I love reading your posts. “remember just because you can, doesn’t mean you should” … take care of yourself. You can’t help anyone if your not taking care of yourself. Lessons that I seem never really to learn, but I try to be consistent when things get weird. Love you my friend.
