Had a heart to heart with my Daddy today at lunch. We laughed about how just yesterday I was the size of Deacon; riding around the yard in a wheel barrel, hiding in holes dug for new trees, and spreading mulch with him at my childhood home. Life is short y’all! Here I am, twenty-seven with this beautiful life, two healthy boys, a husband who loves and provides for me, parents and in-laws who live just minutes down the road, a home to live in, food to eat... the list goes on and on! Yet sadly, I often take all of this for granted.
My prayer for today and for the year to come is that I never miss a chance to say I love you, that I sit in the floor and play, that I have patience with myself and others, and that I cherish these little boys God gave me! Soon enough they will sit where I sit now, a married adult with children, a career, endless responsibilities... and they will still need me, just like I still need my Daddy! #whywaittillnewyears#myresolution#slowdown#maketimeforthoseyoulove#neverquit#keepkeepingon#lovelikethereisnotomorrow#theseasonforloving#daddysgirl#alwaysandforever
Because honoring Love and Light also means to honor Grief... Yoga canNot be all butterflies, rainbows and chasing the Feel Good.
It's also about exploring the Dark Shadows of the Mind and Heart...about embracing that which keeps us Human...and to Love someone at some point in Life is to Lose Someone... I received the rare opportunity to Share my Love, Light and my Grief through chosen Sounds learned as a young adult and recent Sounds of My Heart...and in sharing it all I was able to Join other Grieving Hearts with Great Hope for Healing and Grace...grace that only comes from Grief and Loss.
And I am so Grateful... My Heart and Mind Cannot possibly articulate all that transpired tonight...it is beyond me and I can only hope that I continue to absorb tonight's revelations in the days and years to come.
