Ordinary Sparkling Moments*
"Ordinary Sparkling Moments", limited hardcover edition by Christine Mason Miller
The other day I received a package in the mail that I've anticipated for months. My dear friend has poured her entire heart and soul into this book and to have it in my hands felt like a precious treasure. This was the first time in my life when I have been really close to someone that has gone through this entire process from beginning to end. Learning all of the many steps needed to accomplish this gave me a whole new appreciation for this vulnerable, yet empowering path an author takes.
Each day since I received Swirly's book, I've carefully read a few pages at a time. Each page is an art piece in and of itself and I soak up every morsel. My heart swells with pride and awe of how she has been so absolutely raw...wide open...for the world to see. I told her that lives will change the moment they begin to read her story...and I have learned from others that have read through these pages that it is indeed true.
This book came into my life at the most perfect time. One of the first things I read...
"I am finding myself once again.
She is waiting with open arms."
The image of this inspires huge spilling tears each time I imagine my true self, waiting to embrace me, as I take baby steps closer and closer towards her.
If you are in need of inspiration that feels so in reach...know that it is here, in the pages of my beautiful friend's life book.
edited to add: for those of you inquiring on where to get a copy, she is selling them on her website, as well as in her Etsy shop.
