I’ll keep a part of you with me and everywhere I am there you’ll be.

When I think back on these times
And the dreams we left behind
I’ll be glad ’cause I was blessed to get
To have you in my life ~ Faith Hill

Four years ago today someone dear left the world. I spent two years trying to figure out how to live without her and another two learning I shouldn’t expect so much. The truth is, if you’re lucky, there are people you will never be over.

Every person who touches our lives teaches us something. Let me tell you what Dani taught me.

1.That thing you’ve always wanted to do– the one that scares you. Do it right now.


2.That place you always wanted to go. Book the ticket.


3.Don’t be a slave to your ambition. Stop and let things happen on occasion.


4.Take a minute every day to look around and register how beautiful life is.


5.Love deeply. You don’t have as much time as you think.


My Dani was daring. She was adventurous. She sucked the marrow out of life and took time to see the beauty in simple things. Above all, she loved freely and deeply.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful soul with me, Dani. I’ll keep you in my heart forever.
