The Kindness of Others

Blogging has made such as impact on my life and I’ve only been doing it for three months. I’ve been introduced to the world through reading other blogs, adventures, and views. I’ve become acquaintances with mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, teachers, elderly, and children who have touched my heart and warmed my soul. Today, I received a message that has made such an impact on me that I though I would re-post it along with my response:

“Miss Lesley~

You’re my hero! Noticed you gave me a thumbs up on my blog…which led me to you! Whatta treat to read about your amazing adventures…you rock! I plan on being you in my next lifetime. Figure a gal who can eat a entire mega burger has gotta be a pretty cool chick!

Congrats on the baby, that will be your greatest adventure ever! I would love to gift you a print for the nursery (I’m an artist who adores whimsical positive images). Just click to my site and pick out whatever calls to you and the babe. It will arrive will a loving prayer attached…..consider it “angel mail”.

Keep living life to the fullest and making us smile out here!



P.S. I subscribed to your blog…I’m sure you’ll hit 5,000 peeps before you know it. Woo Who!!”


I know I’m over emotional because I’m pregnant but your kindness has brought me to tears.

I have a large appetite for food as well as travel and adventure. McGreevy’s gave me all of that in one little package. I hope that others can find a place where they feel so free that they are liberated enough to let their spirit show.

Becoming a mother has already been my greatest accomplishment and has brought me more happiness than I ever imagined possible. Seeing my precious daughter for the first time on ultrasound was the most beautiful image I’ve experienced, and feeling the flutters in my stomach each time she moves or kicks brings on a smile that lasts all day. Creating her room with my husband has, yet again, confirmed my deep love and respect for him. He has given everything he has into creating something beautiful for her and there are no words to express how blessed I am to have him in my life. I am living in my “happily ever after”.

Your site,, Cindy DeLuz Mixed Media Artist, is reflective of my greatest feelings and emotions. The “Getaways” section is like you’ve read my mind and put it to paper. You have a “LOVE IN LAGUNA BEACH” piece that is a perfect fit for my husband and I and our journey in Laguna Hills. We consciously thought about if we could live anywhere in the world, where would it be. We choose Laguna Hills as our dream location and it was here that our love created our precious baby girl that is four months shy of being born. Countless evenings and weekends are spend strolling along Laguna Beach
dreaming of our future together. Your FISHERMAN’S WHARF piece is reminiscent of my childhood days growing up with a fisherman grandfather and living in a fishing community. If any one person has changed my life for the better, it would be my grandfather. He is strong, supportive, loving, giving, and more understanding than Jesus himself. He’d give everything, and often has, to make us happy and bring joy into our lives. Anyone that has ever been graced with his presence sees his beautiful spirit and is a better person for knowing him. Your SUNDAY ON THE BAY piece shows my husband and I before we
moved to California. He taught me how to sail and showed me the ocean from a different perspective. It was while sailing that I learned of his patience and relaxed demeanor and realized that I was falling in love with the man of my dreams. Your YOUNG AT HEART pieces are the personification of my mother. She has taught us how to remain young and enjoy the simple things in life. I will forever be grateful to her for instilling that in me. Your HOLIDAYS pieces are a step back into my past in eastern Canada filled with snow, family-made snowmen, decorating, and Santa Clause. But it is your ROYAL WINGS – LIVE YOUR DREAMS that combines everything that has shaped my life. If your offer stands for a gift print, I choose that one! I keep returning for another look and a reminder of the amazing times that are to come with my daughter and my husband. We’re creating a family that will always live our dreams.

P.S. I’ve reached over 850 followers and the number is rising thanks to wonderful believers like yourself.

Thanks for the encouragement and a link to one of the most beautiful sites I’ve ever seen.

May your days be filled with happiness and laughter.


Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay awhile and leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever, the same.
