chrissy & me, taken by boho boy, canon digital rebel xti
I just need to say that I am so very grateful for my angel-friends out there. The ones that get me even when I don't get myself. The ones that take me gently by the hand and help me find my wisdom. The ones that realize how very tender and sacred this journey of mine is and with that understanding, hold it with gentle loving care.
I stumble and you help me pick myself up. I close up and you remind me to remain open. I get angry and you tell me that is okay. I weep and you weep with me. I dance and you dance with me but you don't expect me to always dance. You sit near me when I am tired of dancing.
Thank you for reminding me that I am brave. That I am open. That I have guts. That I am closer to my dreams. That my wisdom and truth are within me. That it is okay to protect my heart when something doesn't feel right.
This journey is not just about meeting my sweet baby at the end. It is about all these gifts along the way. It's about the growth, the change, the heart wrenching, heart soothing stuff that will make me the person I want to be. Not just the mother I want to be...but the wife, the sister, the daughter, the friend, the whole person.
Thank you...sweet, gentle angels.
ps. speaking of angels...you can find Chrissy's art/illustrations throughout Sylvia Browne's Book of Angels. her art is breathtaking.
