I am in a lucky ducky of a position with the work that I do, to receive sweet letters. Lots of very, very sweet letters and I am grateful for each and every one. I definitely read all that you send me and do my best to respond to as many as I can.
Every so often, I get a letter that blows me right our of the water... or rather, makes me get up from my desk and take a break from fretting and frowning over web formatting issues, bookkeeping, editing, budgeting or any other un-fun task that comes with running my biz.
Today, I received a note that made me want to do the running man atop my kitchen counter and cartwheel over my two stoves and wheatgrass sprouter. Today, I took the time to pat myself on the back for a job well done. Today I received a letter that essentially embodied in fewer words than I am capable of, all the reasons why I do what I do 39 hours a day, 11 days a week.
This letter captured all that I work for and at the same time showed the magical powers of right living, a little nutritional support, some hope and inspiration and most of all- the influence of nature to do it's when we let it do it's thing.
Jessica (who wrote the letter below) described finding my website as "random". Can we all agree for a moment that there is no such thing as random?
Please read and let it inspire you!:
This is a long overdue thank you to you and all of the awesome-ness you continue to impart on this planet!!!
My husband and I were having difficulty conceiving. I had been on the pill forever, and coming off of it over two and a half years ago my hormones and cycles were a complete disaster. Every month was devastating when my period would show up yet again, ranging from a 20 day cycle to 40 days. I had absolutely no clue when I was ovulating and the frustration was overwhelming!
I was surfing [the internet] one day and randomly discovered your website. I ordered several of your e-tutorials including the lunar cycle guide. After following your advice my cycles were regulated within a couple of months. It was such a relief as a sense of balance and control returned to my life again!
I was also totally inspired reading about your adventures at the Balenbouche Estate, and I immediately knew it was a place my husband and I needed to visit. Last June we made the trip to St. Lucia and had an amazing experience there. Uta was a truly wonderful host and we had a blast exploring the estate and the beautiful island overall.
About a month later, we learned that we had conceived our first child, which most likely occurred while we were in St. Lucia. In March of 2011, our son arrived safely and soundly, and I am fortunate to have had a completely natural and wonderful birth experience.
I must extend my sincere gratitude and props to you for everything you do. You are impacting and helping to change people's lives in such positive ways, and I am so happy that I stumbled across your website a year and a half ago. My entire family has benefited from the information you share in countless ways. Thank you so much for all of your amazing and inspiring work, and keep on being awesome:)
