I sit here snuggled in my home, surrounded by our essence and feeling so comforted. My heart is swelling with such gratefulness from all of the sweet, sweet love both my husband and I received this past week from each of you. Even from some lovely souls I’ve never seen here in this space. You came out of the bloggie woods just to give us a gentle nudge of encouragement and pearls of wisdom.
I felt each of you circle around us. I held your hands. I heard your songs. I’ve been lifted up with your arms and both of my tiny feet are standing firm on the ground. I am surrendering once again to my journey. Open to the lessons, the messages and the growth.
I am teachable.
I’ve listed some other gems of gratefulness I received. I am just so humbled and touched by the special gifts from these souls this week, I just had to put it here so they knew how much I appreciated them. If you haven’t met these women in my bloggie sisterhood yet…do have a visit in their lovely spaces.
Sweet sweet gifties:
A sweet package from Andrea with the word “Faith” painted on a canvas.
A beautifully creative homemade card from this amazing woman that I so admire.
A crazy cool and giggly phone convo with this gorgeous creature. Her accent is every bit as beautiful as she is. We're so connected.
Another kindred, tender and powerful phone convo with this goddess of nature. A friendship I treasure.
This yummy post and poem.
This post that left me in tears and feeling so humbled and thinking perhaps this journey of mine truly does have a purpose larger than I can see.
Drinking yummy white sage tea sent in a lovely card from this wise pink coyote.
Thoughts of my dear friend Leonie and her upcoming art show.
Thea walking by my side through this mad roller coaster of fertility and never tiring of the broken record of emotions I share with her.
Liz and her warrior picture. We had a lovely chat and I gently told her I'd love to see a picture of her as a warrior because she felt like one to me. And she did it beautifully with such grace.
This woman for reaching out to me so tenderly and then posting her emotions so bravely. You have moved me!
Her strength in this post astounded me. If we all had a heart as big as hers, what a lovely place this world would be.
And if my big sister Darlene (b/sis) had a blog, I'd send you there but she doesn't. She's been my rock, as she always has been throughout my crazy life. Her wisdom astounds me and the gentle way she loves me is such a gift.
Here are the songs that have kept my spirit alive this week. Most inspired by these two lovely ladies.
