As 2015 came to a close, I took a few days to highlight some of the amazing people in my life; my 12 Days of Gratitude.
Well, we are counting down the final days of 2016, and I am again feeling…well…feelie…and so want to share with you all some of the amazing people I know who epitomize love and joy and beauty, and who have transformed my life.
For those of you who remembered last year’s list, there will be a few overlaps here, but hey, they are that amazing and this is my list!
Robyn Lawson: mother, daughter, blogger, poet
Through our shared friendship with humourist Ned Hickson, I first met Robyn in the blogosphere and immediately felt my life change.
An Indigenous Canadian, Robyn has a passion to explore and share her Native community and roots in all its glories and horrors, more often than not, laying herself bare through her emotional and lyric poetry.

Robyn is a beautiful spirit who has touched my life in ways that I cannot yet begin to fathom, and remarkably so given that we have never spoken directly (e.g., phone or Skype) or met physically.
Thank you, Robyn, for sharing yourself and your experiences with me.

What a really lovely, gift to receive, Randall. Thank you so much for this. Happy Christmas to you, my friend. I so love your kindnesses… your heart is so huge.
Enlarged heart probably bacon-wrapped. Happy to share my joy of having you in my life!
Man, you’re a great writer! and damn, such a sweet feelie kind. 🙂 Oh, and one more thing, if Ned Hickson is No. 1, I will be so pissed. It will be obvious that he employed some sort of editorial bribery, now that he’s a bigshot.
No particular order to these…more simply as they occurred to me…thus, you were first in my thoughts 😀
