I was raised to say please and thank you, so please bear with me while I thank so many wonderful people who have been a part of me for the past several years.
I have been blessed having so many beautiful friends and because of that I can’t possibly name you all. Just know that if we have conversed online or in person or spent time together sharing heart-to-heart talks, I am talking to you. You know who are and I thank you for everything.
First and foremost, I want to thank my daughters, Kianne Lei and Jessilyn Rebecca, for encouraging and believing in me. You have supported my growth and confidence as a mother and as a woman in more ways than you can imagine.
To my sister, Paige JoAnne, who shared her spiritual fire with me many years ago and sparked the flame that now burns within me. Thank you.
Thanks to my family members who have not given up on me and remain by my side.
I have had the pleasure of working with so many spirited individuals. You have become part of my family inside and outside of school. Thank you to: Angela, Anne Marie, April, Corey, Diana, Gail, Janet, Lisa, Lynn, Mary Jane, Pam, Tammy and Terri and so many others. Special thanks to my soul sisters, Stacy and Jan.
Thank you to Christina for braving the highs and lows with me all these years.
To my newly found cousins Judy, Brian and Bill and their families. Thank you for wanting me.
To Tom and Michael for being there when others weren’t. Thank you.
To Jeff for helping me learn more about myself. Thank you.
Thanks to Jack for finding me. Your friendship means the world to me.
To Nadine and Del for teaching me so much. Thank you.
To Karen for teaching me Reiki and being my mentor.
To Jess for all her advice, knowledge and guidance with my new essential oil venture. Thank you!!
To Jen for helping me with all the legal stuff. You are my sunshine.
To Abbie for illustrating my vision. The Willow Connection logo exists because of you. It is amazing and I thank you so very much for your generosity and talent.
Extra special thanks to Mike for making my website. Thank you for being so patient while I added and revised over and over again. You have made my vision a reality and I am eternally grateful.
I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge two very important cats. Without their presence in my life, I would not be where I am today. Thank you to Phoebe for helping me find God again and to Willow for making spirituality a way of life.
