It’s taken me 3 months to write this post.
I’d like for this to be an incredibly well written piece. I’d love to be witty and awesome and put together the perfect words to describe my love for the people in these pictures and the extreme amazingness of this event even happening.
But the words still don’t come.
Instead – I’ll tell you the story behind a picture in this post and a person who I will never forget…
That night (the one where I got to have a dream come true and meet one of my favorite authors in the history of EVER) a precious lady stood up during the question time.
- Please leave a comment here for Jessica. She will be reading today. Let us show her we cared enough to STOP today and say Ansley’s name. Let us tell her that she is not the only one who is feeling the width and depth today of the loss of Ansley. Also, in your comment- tell Jessica where you’re from. It makes the love feel more real when you can see that it’s covering the globe.
- Then please, in honor of Ansley and Jessica- call to mind a friend who has suffered a great loss and then reach out to her. If you can’t call her, email her. If you can’t email her, text her. Don’t let your lack of time or the perfect thing to say stop you. Just do it. Stop the world for a moment in honor of her. That’s what we do when we pause in the middle of a busy day to reach out to someone who is hurting. We say “to me, you are worth stopping the world for.”
Some of the ladies that made this night happen. THANK YOU. You ladies are incredible…
May I just pause and tell you what an honor it was to meet Tisha? (Glennon’s mom) I adore her. And watching her beam with love over her daughter was one of my favorite parts of the night. I learned so much by talking with her and watching her love for her daughter.
Afterward, they opened up some time to come by and meet Glennon. I loved seeing the stories and moments shared…
Gardens. Little amazing miracles, my friends.
Her husband needed a little coaching on how to say “Momastery”
These are some of the fabulous ladies that made this night happen.
