Last month, I interviewed Cailey, a young woman with a very big life. She was born with a congenital heart disease and two years ago at the age of 13, had a very complicated heart surgery. Today, she is as I imagine she's always been -- bubbling with joy and laughter and introspection. As I spoke with her and her father, as I read her website, as I wrote a profile of her and even corresponded with her a bit by email, she inspired me.
In these tough weeks, Cailey's stayed with me. She doesn't settle into her difference or what she's survived. This is the life she is living and already, she is doing it fully. And that doesn't even include all the phenomenal dreams she's devising for herself.
There are people I get to write about who speak to my soul, even in a short hour on the phone. Cailey is one of those people and when you read just a bit about her, I think you will feel the same.
If you are the praying or good energy or warm thought or vibrations in the universe type of person, take this Sunday to send a bit of your own light up and out to Cailey. Somewhere in Texas, I imagine, she's doing that for someone else, and wouldn't that make for a rich beginning to the week?
