Words are Powerful

This may be blog cheating, but I had to share.

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post over at the lead small blog that impacted me in a powerful way. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was was going to write until I just started typing. As I typed, the words came to me and 20 minutes later, I connected to deep wound and hand an thought… maybe an idea. Actually, I’ve been calling it an epiphany.
