A pleasant and beautiful surprise from a thoughtful friend of mine, Miss Kate Millet. From a wonderful store on Queen West, Ten Thousand Villages is a fair trade not-for-profit organization that sells artwork from artisans in low-income countries. Their mission to financially support families by way of allowing them to market their crafts and share their stories inspires me. How incredible. I think of the hand that crafted this, the story they possess, and that their beauty has transcended onto me.
The lovely Miss Kate picked this up thinking of my most favorite word, thinking of lovehard… and well… just thinking of me=) You don’t know how symbolic this is to me in my most current circumstances. I’ve been reminded again what it means to practice what this word embodies. Courage comes from the heart, and it’s a choice I want to make every single day. It’s the only way to experience life in all it’s possibility.
I’ve spoken my piece.
