I sit in a wooden chair made by my husband; alone with my thoughts in the middle of the night. I think of how last Friday, I went running through a maze of trails in Sacramento, with my sister, Jenny. I was not the fastest. I was not the most fit between the two of us. But as I fell far behind my sister, I felt peace in my soul so pure and profound, I could not keep from smiling. In a moment of pure knowledge, I felt acutely aware that the place I am at in life right now, is exactly where I am supposed to be. Any sense of competition, any need to prove something or seek validation was null and void.
I feel strongly that one of my main purposes in life is to help you feel of your intrinsic worth through music. Whether that be over the background music at the supermarket, at church camp, in a concert arena, through your car stereo or at a dinner party in your back yard, it just doesn't matter. We may not ever meet, but my connection to you through radio waves or through handshake and hug, fulfills me to the point of utter happiness. So at 12:57 a.m., I feel the need to say thank you for giving meaning to my life.
