This, in my inbox:
"I meant to tell you, there's a security guard at the garden where I volunteer on Saturdays. He such an amazing man. He's probably 75, he has 4 successful kids, and he is a caregiver for his ex wife. He always has a smile on his face.
Last year, my friend turned me on to this microwave egg cooker. I was a breakfast sandwich making fool until I gave up bread. I would make extras for the security guards and yard workers I would consistently see on Saturdays. George gave me a thank you card the week following the first time I brought him one. He is so thoughtful and sweet!
Anyways, I gave him a happiness sprinkling card several weeks ago that said "You are awesome!" He lit up like a Christmas tree with joy. He showed me last week that he laminated it, and carries it with him every day now. 😊"
Bottom line: it takes very little to light people / us up. Let's not be shy.
"I think I love you. You bring good things into my life, or remind me of things I love and know, but have let go of."
"Thank you for your gentle words that are packed full of wisdom. I have been struggling with the concept of what words can do to another person when they are negative words. This podcast is the flip side of our word power, and shows how delightfully powerful kind words can be. Loving words are so delicious leaving my mouths, and are just as delicious entering our ears. Our hearts are touched in both situations. It's a great circle of life. Thank you."

"Essentially pure love.
I enjoy how Laura is kind to herself and to us other humans who dance in and out of each other's lives. The first episode is so relatable and an enjoyable invitation to reflect and feel just a little more present and open. I am really looking forward to each episode!"
"Don't miss an episode!
You can count on Laura for warmth, humor, charm, and a lift to your day and your heart. She inspires me to be braver than I am, and to love the world out loud. She's a gem, and a generous one at that!"
