  3. This was such a stretch for me, but I’m glad I found your website- I love this idea!  I linked up over at Gyspy Mama (that’s what we were supposed to do right?)  But I thought I would let you know that your 5 minutes on “whole” were beautiful and so thoughtful!  I think it’s amazing how all of our minds go different places even though we all here the same word.  God made each of us so unique!

    I love how you said that the exercise had done much to your spirit.  That is EXACTLY how I felt.  What I needed, so much.  See you soon and so nice to “meet you”.  🙂
