One example of why my job is awesome.

This is one example of why my job is so awesome. I received an email from Danielle that brought tears to my (and Andy's) eyes. (Andy wants me to let you know though that he's usually very tough! ;))

Thank you Danielle and Paul for sharing this with me. Paul, are you awesomesauce or what?! Thank you for being so amazingly loving and nurturing. I wish everyone had a person like you in their lives.

"Dear Tam -
I wanted to tell you about a special moment I shared with my husband thanks to LifeBook. 
I had just finished the artwork for week 5 when my husband Paul, came into my studio to see what I was up to.  I explained to him that there was a list of words that I had to choose from to describe myself and then add to my page.  I told him how I had to pick one word from each letter of the alphabet and then repeat the process as often as necessary with a new word.
Paul asked to see the list.  He then asked if he could choose the words.  I thought to myself, why not, if I didn’t like what he said, I just wouldn’t write it down.  Now, I must tell you that Paul and I are nearing our 60’s, and although we tell each other we love each other several times a day, every day, I didn’t know what to expect.
What ensued was a magical hour of his calling out qualities that he felt I have, and his telling me why he believed they described me.  When we were done, I felt so loved and so.... well.... so important.  All of my insecurities seemed to have vanished and I was just a well loved woman.  Not an overweight, greying, near-sighted, wheel-chair bound person. 
There I was safely ensconced in my studio, being flooded with positive loving words by the man I love.   I wish every person -  man, woman and child – could feel as I felt at that moment.  I don’t think I have ever felt so special or so powerful.
Thank you for making this moment possible.
Hugs and much love,
NB Danielle is referring a lesson conducted by the awesome Kylie Fowler who is one of the guest teachers of Life Book. :)

    That is a beautiful story, especially since they have shared so mch together, she still didn't know what to expect. I would say he came through with flying colors. In a similar way, I have asked my significant other for help twice, once with my goddess qualities and more recently with Wyanne's lesson. It was nice to hear his view point of me, and I'm glad he particpated. LIFEBOOK has helped me be a happier person overall. I have found something I enjoy doing so much. I can tell you are a wonderful persoin by your videos. I love how you incorporate your precious family. You are doing an awesome job. I'm sure many others share my sentiments. Thanks.
