“I AM BEYOND GRATEFUL:” FIRST THOUGHTS ON THE CNN HEROES ANNOUNCEMENT

Waking up in Virginia to the CNN news is a bit surreal. The notices for Facebook were in the hundreds in my in box, and for just a minute I thought about all the stuff that means almost nothing. How I wish I had done the interview better or how I hope someone’s not mad or….all those thoughts that undo a pretty fun morning. So once again I turn those thoughts exactly where they need to land—on the number of women this could help find their way home to us, on the amazing community I get to sit with everyday at Thistle Farms that do this work and on the fact that I have gotten to make my life’s work witnessing to love’s power. I am beyond grateful, sitting in the place where you feel the sunshine in your bones and the ocean rumble in your breathe. I am excited to see how the work grows and moves over the next couple years.

Peace and love,
Becca
