I am sharing a post from a dear blogging friend that touched me deeply. Pauline has captured some of the most powerful wisdom of life in one honest, heartfelt outpouring of joy, gratitude, and thoughtfulness.
If you read this soon after publication, I am on my journey somewhere between the far South of New Zealand and the East Coast of the USA to spend ten days with four other WordPress Bloggers. During this time there will be opportunities to meet up with other bloggers who will travel shorter distances to spend some time with us.

Crystal, thank you so much for re blogging Pauline’s heartwarming post. It allowed me the opportunity to go back to reread it and to read the lovely comments that have been posted along the way.
That is a lovely thought that didn’t occur to me: the people who loved it the first time can read it again! It’s worth a second read. Like Pauline’s Desiderata.
