Rachel, that is beautiful.
Being a wonderful listener is a gift, and to help others hear what their own words are saying is treasure!

Beautiful introduction, Rachel--the words, the sentiment, the color, the flowers, the
"g(listening)"...everything about it. Looking forward to reading your book! It's on my wish list.

All the best, as you continue to march fourth ; ) and light the way for others.

Susie said...

Thank you Rachel for having the insight and the 'golden' spirit that lives in your heart and soul, from really listening and gleaning all of this from the many whose lives you've touched and now share in your beautiful book.
