My heart is so full, it is going to burst!
I am so thankful to YOU. I am thankful that you trusted me enough to share names of your loved ones for me to send a special Soul Candy stone to.
You + Me = Brightened someones day!
How amazing is that?!
Do you ever have a moment when you are getting really inspired and you aren't sure were it came from or how you are going to make it happen, but you just have faith and you move forward anyway?
Well, that is what happened to me on December 4th of this month. I had a crazy idea to sprinkle some extra love around this world, but I knew I could not do it alone. So I quickly made a video (tears and all) and before I lost my nerve, I posted my video with my intention of what I wanted to happen, spread a little bit of extra love around this world.
Thankfully many of you answered the call to work with me in such a special way. I am truly so very grateful for you. I asked for names of people who needed some extra love, right now, this time of year, and you gave me names.
You and I, we sent out close to 75 little pieces of love, just because.
The whole process took me longer than I thought it would, but that is okay. I was hoping to get the stones in the mail sooner than I did. But you know what? Everything always happens as it should, right?
I have to share with you a little something about me. I was feeling a bit Grinch like this holiday season. I am not totally sure why, I was just having a hard time getting into the spirit of things. I decided that I needed to change that and the best way to change a mood (a bad one at that) is to focus on others.
And guess what?! It worked!
That feeling I was looking for arrived when I changed my mood by focusing on others.
I am so thankful that YOU trusted me enough to share with me a little bit about your loved ones. It was truly a moving experience. I know we all have heartache and pain in our lives. Some times that heartache and pain is larger than others times, but when we (you and me) focus on helping someone else it takes a bit of our own heartache and pain away and I am thankful that this is what happened for me.
Sprinkling the world with Soul Candy has been my goal since the beginning of my company in 2012. And by having this giveaway we were able to sprinkle in a big way. Stones were sent to California and New York and just about every state in between. Stones were also sent internationally to Australia, Belgium, the UK, and Canada. (maybe a few more that I can't remember at the moment)
Check this out.....so much love!
Maybe you can see now why my heart is bursting with love. It felt so good to write and wrap up each stone and send it off hoping it would bring a smile to someone's face. And the stories coming in are confirming that that actually happened.

I hope you know how wonderful you are. We are here on this planet to help each other along. Somedays we are the ones that need helping and other days we are able to help someone else. Thank you for being my elf. Together we made someone feel special and that is what it is all about.
Please know that you are worthy, you are enough and you are loved. Whatever it is you are doing in this life, you are amazing. I believe in you and I am thankful for you.
Sending you love this beautiful day!
