Monday, August 4

to my tribe...


thea coughlin, canon digital rebel xti


thank you for allowing me the space to spill my tears,
even when i try to hold back.

thank you for shouting to the sky for me,
when i don't have the energy to.

thank you for never questioning my love for you,
when i need to pull back and be quiet.

thank you for saying its my turn to be pregnant,
when i discovered 7 acquaintances were pregnant in one week.

thank you for suggesting i tear off my clothes and go to the ocean,
because you knew the salt water would heal the wounds.

thank you for reminding me how wonderful Nia feels,
when i felt too tired to move.

thank you for saying i am not delicate during this time of the month,
but that i just need to reserve my energies. that felt empowering.

thank you for the special ways each of you nurture.
it feels like a soothing balm of pure white softness.

Hi Boho Girl! Sending you much love and admiration from the other side of the globe. Been a long time lurker and I've always admired your photography and writing. And even more so your incredible journey. I came across this blog post and I knew I had to drop you a note. Just wanted to let you know that there truly are more people cheering you on your pregnancy journey than you know. :) Thank you for sharing your boho magic. - ria

Hi, i dont know if you would consider me as your tribe(would love to be).
But, your words touch me, flow in me. I feel your pain and hope..
Your journey is a special one, your learning and teaching as you go. Bringing us all together in this life.
I will light a candle,send a prayer out to God and the universe for you.
Blessings to you both.
