I kind of so love these words and oh how i missed you...


`
Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.

the pace and all that jazz


`
it's seems the holidays
came and went
we spent christmas in a hotel 
+
on the road
`
`
`
baby girl was invited to curl 
for the state
of Ohio
`
we were together as a family
that's what it's about
`
`
`
love
`
i have a article in the latest issue of bella grace magazine
{palms clasped}
thank you for the all the kind emails you continue to send
`
`
{kindness}
`
the pace is slower here at home
the pages of the calendar continue to turn
time doesn't wait
it just doesn't
`
`
`
passport applications are being filled out
life is twisitng and turning us 
in the most beautiful and confusing ways
i trust it
i am a faithful woman
{god fearing}
i continue to trust and roll with the process
`
`
i've been writing again
+
i bought a new journal
 with each whirl of my pen i feel 
the walls i've built as of late 
begin to crumble
{self love}
`
`
`
reading in 2014 wasn't great for me
i found books were a chore 
i had to step back
2015 i will allow the words to find me
`
`
`
{let go and love and all that jazz}

Ps: i finally have a link to the right to subcribe to this tiny blog of mine.
`
`
`
bless

gray skies
hushed snow filled streets
twinkly lights
winter opens my soul
winter cracks me open with gratefulness
