My name is Julie and I am Liz Lord’s second mama (Casey’s mom). I’ve got tons of your DWBH shirts and have passed your website onto many friends. But something truly amazing happened a couple of weeks ago that I wanted to share with you…..
My guy and I were down in the Grenadine Islands (very south Caribbean) getting ready to take a 10 day sailing vacation. We were on the small island of St. Vincent, at an even smaller sailboat charter company called Barefoot, when I saw a man wearing a DWBH t-shirt come walking up the dock. Of course I had to stop him and we shared stores about our “warriors” Liz Lord and Jennifer Randolph. We chatted about them and our sailing, then went our ways.
But about 10 minutes later his wife, Jodi, found me in the restaurant and introduced herself. There seemed to be an instant bond between the two of us — women who love our warriors so much and yet met in the middle of the caribbean ocean because of a t-shirt! She said she had brought some tees with her to take pictures throughout her sail, then handed me one of her shirts. She said to take pictures for Liz in the shirt and let her know that she’s always in my heart. I cannot tell you how special that was. I did take her shirt, and had soooo much fun taking pictures everywhere — staging the “I am the king of the world” shot from the Titanic, staging shots in the dinghy, etc. Every time I pulled out that shirt and took a snapshot, I thought of Liz, of Jennifer, of Jodi and of you, Mina. How your website and shirts are not only supporting our loved warriors, but making heartfelt connections around the world. Thank you for that. And thank you again, Jodi, for reminding me that we are all connected.
Here are some of the fun shots of me in Jodi’s shirt, loving Liz.
Keep up the great work, Mina.
