It Only Takes One: The Friendship that Gave Me the Courage to Start Sleep Walk

by julie on March 13, 2013

Three years ago, I started the first SLEEP WALK unsure if anyone would show up. My good friend Gail said she would join me and I believed her. “As long as I’m not alone,” I told myself.

Gail was there – the first year, the second year and the third year. She has generously given her time, folding tables and key logistical support to help make each Sleep Walk a success. 

Gail’s friendship is one of those unique gifts in life – we met in a memoir writing class, brought together by our personal grief and life challenges, our friendship quickly grew into a celebration of life with common interests in art, photography, comedy shows, Italian food, cappuccinos and tea.

Thank you Gail for being there for me, 3 years in a row! I wanted to celebrate our friendship on my blog – for anyone looking to take on a life dream – remember , it only takes one person believing in you to find the courage to start. Begin now. Begin anywhere. Just begin. The world will rise to meet you at your goal.

Cheers to Gail for being such a great presence in your life! Without amazingly supportive people, what would we do?!
