Simply Grateful


All my life I have wondered from place to place meeting people after people.   I must admit that I have often taken these experiences and people for granted.  For whatever reason (I call it head up my ass syndrome) I never really stopped to look at what was before me.  –You-.  So this note is for each and everyone one of you that have entered and yes even for those that have exited my life. 

I have come to realize that I am a summation of those interactions.  Each of you has left an indelible mark on my DNA that has come to be known as –Me-.  I have come to the realization that many times I was too busy, too disinterested and yes too distracted to really acknowledge you standing in front of me; caught up in my mind’s games of important. 

So I stand here, simply grateful to all of those who have made their way through my life, impacted me in ways you may never begin to understand.  To all I say thank you.  Thank you for sharing a bit of yourself with me, thank you for holding your place in the world and thank you for simply being you.
