I’m a grateful person, generally, but every now and again, an unexpected gift arrives, shaking me to my humble core…a reminder of the power of humility, the importance of service and simple acts of caring. 

If you haven’t yet moseyed over to The Heart of the Matter, please do.  I’m honored and privileged to join wholehearted colleagues, my fellow writers, as we consider ‘what matters most’ and share our perspectives on living our best lives. 

This morning on HoTM, I posted a story about a former student.  A magnificent, recent interaction that brought tears, yes, but also reminded me that we are all fragile and the simplest stuff in life – like knowing someone’s name – is a starting place to build meaningful, caring connections.

Take care!

    1. You are so right-on, Kathleen. We end up trusting that we’ve done “good stuff” but the opportunities for full-circle feedback can be rare. When it comes, it sure does feel good. Sending hugs to you today! xo! 💕


  1. Oh such a wonderful story Victoria. Love this story. So happy for you too. E.F.’s letter to you . . . Oh my, says so much about the good stuff in life, says a lot too about the type of teacher you are and type of person you are! A great piece. Thank you so much for sharing.
