  1. Hi Wendy!
    I just had to drop a comment about the synchronicity of your post!
    I literally JUST finished writing two blog posts about life lessons, and their purpose, and scheduled them (one for tomorrow, one for the day after). I then grabbed my mobile, pulled up my reader, and BOOM! Life Lesson post!
    Synchronicity gets me so excited, I just had to share, lol!
