On Okinawa it wasn’t unusual for me to run into clients all over town. My husband used to chuckle because we couldn’t go anywhere without seeing someone! Then it started happening in more obscure places, on airplanes coming back from a trip to Europe, walking to a temple in the middle of Kyoto, in a bathroom at a random international airport. It became a fun phenomenon for my little family.
When we got off the plane in Germany we were met by some of our closest friends, that was no accident and such a blessing. These were good friends of ours from Okinawa that my baby took his first steps too…you know the ones that become your family. We were so excited to be reunited and decided to grab some lunch after getting back to base. Imagine my surprise when I walk in and before I can even get through the door I hear my name called out followed by a wonderful hug! You should have seen my husband and kid’s faces! We had not even been in town for more than an hour and here I was being greeted by clients from Okinawa! We all joined together for lunch and it was so great to be seeing them on the other side of the world!
When she heard that I had sessions before Christmas she booked right away, I was so excited that I would be getting to see her and her daughter again. She drove the three hours here, and three hours home and I have to tell you that really touched me. To be worth such travels…especially when their coming gave me so much back.
Meeting all of my new families was such an amazing experience last weekend. But I will say there was something special about seeing such familiar faces that gave my spirit an amazing lift. Some of you will probably recognize them too…they have been such sweet, loyal clients.
Thanks Girls for coming all the way over here to see me! I feel so blessed. I hope you have an amazing holiday.
