Mary welcomes me everyday here in L’Isle sur la Sorgue

Yesterday was my Birthday, and I recognized even more how blessed I am with family and friends.  I came here seeking tranquility and found it.  I’ve discovered even more, how to just “be”.  The peace that I discovered here will come home with me to share.  I hope you feel it through my blog.

One thing I know is to look upwards with faith.  To let go of anything that holds your spirit down. To choose happiness everyday and it will choose you back.  Lifetime is filled with moments that define us.

I recognize the women in my life who have led the way for me, who share my journey, who hold my hand.  Mother’s, Daughters, Grandmothers, Friends, Sisters, Aunts, Cousins, In-laws, Students, Neighbors…those who share their stories of faith, endurance, discovery, humanity, life, and art.  Thank you for being a part of my life.  I hold each of you so close to my heart.  I’m grateful for Mary, she’s everywhere here in France, so adored.  This statue is so simple and welcoming, it’s lilke she is reaching out here hand to all of us.
