THE most important job i could have had.

Every once in a while the cloud clears,
and all the self-doubt.
the negative chatter I have been fed over the years-
slips away
and i am certain for a tiny moment 
that being 'here' was 
THE most important job i could have had.

as you stepped forward
onto the new chapter of your your life
you took the time to write a note.
a huge gift to me,
the loveliest of compliments-

to have had a hand in getting you this far---
and to know you include us as your family 
when you think about 'coming home'...

for all of you who have come here
and blended in my family
my heart swells
with love, 
pride and joy.
your words
are the greatest gift.
