A gratitude letter for my virtuous friend Shari…

Dear Shari,

From the first day I met you at the Georgia Meditation Center back in 2015 I knew you were special. You were so welcoming and so peaceful. I remember you were doing the yoga stretches before meditation and you had that kind and beautiful smile. I cannot put into words how grateful I am to have met you. Thank you for being my virtuous friend and for always lifting me up. Every time I walk into the center, you are the first person I look for. You have become a very special person in my life and I thank you for allowing me to be a part of yours. Thank you for being so kind, sweet, caring, patient, funny, fun, and just a pleasure to be around.

I am so grateful our paths crossed and I am even more grateful for all I learn from you. Your calm demeanor, your sweet gestures and your giving personality. I do not think the English dictionary has enough adjectives to describe you. Thank you for our long talks and our text message exchanges. Thanks for sending me good meditations and for thinking of me in such positive way. I feel your energy even when we are not close. You are like an older sister to me and I love you deeply.

I admire your wisdom and your desire to always do good. I admire your willingness to go out of your way, and out of the country, to help people in need. Thank you for being this beam of light. I wish we could spend more and more time together so your goodness can rub off on me. Thank you for being such a gentile soul. The world is definitely a better place because you are in it. I know mine is.

With all my love and gratitude,



Simone Santos
