time spent with a superhero


andrea scher in mid-air, canon digital rebel xt

I just spent a few days basking in the warm, sisterly and comfy presence of my lovely friend, Andrea. Not only does she bring a splash of color to our worlds through her fabulous jewels but she also brings color (and sparkles) to each moment I am with her.

We have walked closely together on this journey to conceive and although she is now on another path of impending motherhood, I still feel as though our roads are side by side. She has not forgotten the longing she once felt to be pregnant, so it was very natural for her to meet me where I was.

It felt so sweet to touch her belly, to feel her babe moving about and to share thoughts about impending parenthood. It was the first time that I have been near a pregnant woman without feeling the fear that it won't happen to me. On the contrary, I found myself feeling quite confident that it will happen...and perhaps soon! It is such a wonderful feeling to feel so inspired not only by her journey but by so many other aspects of who she is.

So, for that extraordinary shift in perspective within my soul and the rest of the yumminess that her and I shared, I am so grateful for our time together.

Magical things do indeed happen when spending time with a Superhero.

Me again! FYI: My necklace is "Joy". Everyone should have a superhero necklace! And I think they do have special powers too. :)

that is truly fabulous... i love that you spent this time together :)

only thing missing in this photo is the undies worn on the outside, that would have been the total superhero deal.

loving that you are sharing this journey together... isn't it amazing the connections we make? i remember when i sent you the link to andrea's blog all that time ago, and i remember you mentioning bek on your blog... and here we are, a little further down the track, circling with these women on the same weekend, connections made from across the world. how divinely guided and serendipitous is that?

love,
Leonie

p.s. if i was in the same state, or even the same country, i'd be hitchhiking my way to giggle with you long ago :)

Fantastic.
I actually found *you* through SuperHERO... via Ali Edwards.
**my scrapping HERo**
I didnt realise Leonie had sent you SH too... so there you go.
Life sure is amazing.
And I am glad you are getting *exactly* what you need write now.
You are asking... and the universe is providing.
***keep it up sister***
And just remember ~we are all in this together~
This L I F E.
Much love
