May you touch dragonflies and stars, dance with fairies and talk to the moon.

Two years ago today, I woke up alone in an Atlanta hotel after missing my connection to Johannesburg. My mom had passed in the night. She was gone. I would not get to see or hold her one last time. And I was stuck in a city where I knew no one. Lost, alone and very afraid.

But the kindness of one incredible woman changed everything. Rassalyn Willis, stopped everything she had to do that day. She pushed pause to help out a complete stranger. I mean who does this? No one …. Life is crazy and hectic and we all have our own stuff.

But this angel of a woman sat with me, spoke to me, hugged me, force fed me and made me laugh. She listened and nodded and supported me. A total stranger thrown onto my path when I was very lost…. This woman, my earth angel, single handedly saved me.

I hope she will inspire you and make you realize that the kindness, even of total stranger can shift another person’s reality.

I hope you will take a page out of Rassalyn Willis’ book and use each and every day to spread your light. Use every opportunity that presents itself to be kind and make other’s smile. We are all walking our own path and sometimes the road is bumpy.

The lesson in this is to PAY IT FORWARD and the universe will send you blessings. YOU can make a difference. May the road rise up to meet your feet wherever they wander xxx Chef MM
