"I am grateful for having a meditative place in Our House. I am grateful for silence; it makes me think, observe, and appreciate the little things around me. For the community around me. I have noticed and appreciate that if I ask for what I need, people will give. And even when you don’t ask, people here see what you need and come forward. I’m grateful for my mother who taught me to dream, my kids who help me realize my dreams and unconditional love, and my friends who shared my dreams. Just for little things... To sum it up: friends, family, health, freedom, peace, seasons, wisdom, beauty, joy, spiritual inspiration, love, creativity, harmony, nature, generosity, simplicity, energy, joy! This place is starting my foundation and I can’t wait for the future."

Thank you, thank you so much."
