*low feedback whine*
We interrupt this tripe for an important message!
The following message is being broadcast to you via Black Ink Pad, courtesy of Sharon (here)...
"...on Tuesday, Sept. 21, ... look at your own world, for just that one day, with unconditional love....show your appreciation to the people you appreciate....because you know that life is short and unpredictable, and you don't want another day to go by without telling people that you appreciate and love them for who they are and what they do
...Because we have all lost someone dear to us unexpectedly, with words unsaid.
On Tuesday, Sept. 21, we will say what is in our hearts without fear of rejection or reprisal, so that everyone in our world will know they are unconditionally loved, and despite whatever may have transpired before, all is good now.
All that is asked is to tell the people that you love, (not here, but in your own life) that you love them. That's it. That's all. And to as many, or as few, people as you need to tell it to.
I have lost far too many friends this year, and unexpectedly. Life is too short and unpredictable to let another day go by without telling the people in our lives that we love them.
Even if your message is met with silence, even if unacknowledged or even rebuffed, the very act of planting the seed leaves the possibility for a change. It would be far better to make the attempt, than to not attempt, and always wonder.
Please share this event with as many people as you can.
I am inviting every one of my friends, and I have over a thousand. If every one of my friends reaches out to at least one other person, individually and privately, imagine the exponential results....
Only light can dispel the darkness."
Gypsy here again. Thanks for tuning in folks. And, thank you, Sharon for such a relevant, poignant post.
As trite and smarmy as it might sound, all of the people in my life are in it for a reason. I love all of you, unconditionally, as only real love can be (if you're unsure of what "real love" is, please go read more about it here). I love you not just for what you are, but because of who you are and for every bit of who you are. I mean that.
Go forth and spread some love... because, as Stevie says, "Love's in need of love today."
