“I needed that today, Heather, thank you”.

Is there any better comment to have tacked beneath an article?

The tangible evidence that I have helped someone. There is a person ‘out there’ who has had a need met, through something that I’ve written, at some point in time.

I’m a true believer that the right information comes to us at the right time. I have formed this belief through my love of reading. Over the years I have been gifted helpful books that I have tried to read and then, in resignation, poked them onto my bookshelf for ‘later’.

Sometimes later doesn’t come for years. From time to time I glance at the book, have silent words with it, and on occasion wonder what the person was getting at when they thought it might be of some benefit to me.

Of course, it probably had more to do with the space they were in at the time and the personal benefit they had extracted from the missive. Likely it was just their love and good intention that they wanted to gift me with the same learning and experience.

This sometimes works although it’s not possible for us to drive someone else’s bus too far in the journey. We can give directions and hope they take the best fork in the road for themselves when they come to it.

That’s simple caring and sharing.

It then can happens that the book calls to me. Perhaps something is a catalyst or maybe I just have nothing else to do on a rainy day (although I haven’t found that happening much lately!!).

In this altered space I pick up the very same book and inhale it. I marvel at the wisdom, learn from the pages and enjoy the nuances of the story. In short, I am in the place to understand and appreciate what the giver was trying to impart.

This can be the same in an article. It really doesn’t matter the topic. I’m not talking strictly about ‘self help’ authors. In any genre there will be moments when what the author has written touches a chord that resonates.

Many of us reach out to thank that person. I am forever changed by a recommended song that caused tears to roll off my cheeks, I reminisce about the joy of the written word that I am reminded I shared with my sister, my heart sings to read an article (about articles) that is poetry to my very soul.

The best part of having an article appreciated for the spot it touches in another’s soul is that it causes me to read it again myself.

What was speaking to me on that day that caused me to pour fourth, and what exactly did I say? How was I moved and what message has this kind comment reminded me to live by?

So to my valued followers who read my articles I thank you. To write is enjoyable. To touch a heart once in a while is an honour beyond words.

A good reminder for me too Georgia. Amazing how a comment, phrased in a slightly different way, such as yours, can tweak a perspective. I like the idea of keeping attuned and open to insights...

Heather, I think life is sometimes like the book set aside. Thoughts, ideas, friendships, ambitions are often set aside hopefully to be revisited and appreciated. Your writing stikes a chord in me. Thanks
