I know it has been forever since I have posted, I have no excuses, I just had no words.
So many things are shifting in my world and I am being swept away emotionally but am excited for what is to come. While I have been in autopilot and rather uninspired keeping up with life lately I have found so much comfort and hope in the words of others through reading and deep conversations. I am so grateful for all the love and blessings I have in my life and proud to be plowing ahead in a new home purchase and reno. Focusing on me and the boys only for a while, everything I do is for them and I have come to realise if I don't take care of me there is no possible way I can keep strong and keep up with them.
Sharing something I found from a woman artist who has always inspired me. Her birthday is today and she is under the Cancer sign like me and some of my dearest friends...
“You deserve a lover who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep.
You deserve a lover who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin.
You deserve a lover who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions.
You deserve a lover who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.
You deserve a lover who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry.”
Frida Kahlo (July 6, 1907 - July 13, 1954)
Celebrating the day you were born, sister Cancerian, and all the gifts you left us with.
