Dear KOM, we meet so many people

This week’s Dear KOM email speaks such beautiful truth about the people who leave indelible footprints in our heart, mind and soul. I’m blessed to have several of those and thank Brian for sharing this wonderful sentiment. Want to share about one of the select few in your life? Dear KOM would love to help! Send an email so we can celebrate them together.


Dear KOM,

We all meet so many varied and interesting people during the course of a lifetime. We are left with so many different feelings and impressions. Some are meaningful, some are not. Then there are those ‘select few’ who truly leave their footprints in our ‘heart, mind and soul’. We realize it almost the moment we meet that particular person. Our passion asserts itself, we laugh, we are amazed and we celebrate each other, but most importantly we ‘truly feel alive’. We treasure these people, because they are ‘so very special’ to us. Somehow, we realize how very rare an event like this takes place, actually meeting someone who just seems to fit like a ‘cozy, warm glove on a cold winter’s day’. In essence, it is an ‘absolute miracle’ that occurs between two people.

But there are also challenges involved, even in the midst of such special relationships. There will be times of ‘great joy and yes, even heartbreak’, and everything in between. But if the friendship is ‘tested, tried and true’, built on a ‘rock solid foundation’ of mutual respect and caring, it will weather all storms that come to test it. For it is like a ‘diamond in the rough’. Things of such value: ‘beauty, love, caring, respect, generosity and hope’ can never be destroyed. For they last a lifetime. The ‘AFTERGLOW’ remains in the ‘heart, mind, body and soul’, forever.


As always, thanks for being on this journey with me.
