Friendships have always been something I’ve cherished. Never had many friends, two close childhood friends who would love to see again. However life has a way of redirecting our attention.
Was informed one lost her mother and the other; husband became wheel chair bound both from status updates on Facebook. You say a silent prayer, knowing life certainly is changing, technology adapting to our needs.
And all I really want to do is give them a great big hug, look into their big brown hazel eyes and cry and laugh like we use to. There was a reason why we were best friends, precious moments shared, secrets and dreams and guess what, we evolved into courageous women.
Paula and Gina I will love you forever and ever
Sometimes in life we revisit youthful vigor and innocent reminders of “what once was” even within our own families.
We attempt to merge reflections towards another, sadly chemistry misconstrued our senses. Ruffled emotions create an unbalanced state . . . and we hold on despite ourselves.
And then you see their beauty, fractured teal eclipsed by glory . . .
Your breathless, no words come from your lips and you know what, it’s ok, time was paused so you could see the hidden
AND observe the obvious
Yup you’re within the forest despite the trees
and you giggle, life certainly has it’s twists and turns and allows us to see the most amazing creatures! Yes, you’re not the only one having a bad hair day!
If we just open our eyes and be still long enough to feel and see the droplets of the past roll off . . .
It’s a good day. So lets rejoice and toast … and raise up our Turtle Eggs . . .
Because after the rain
We will find strength to rise towards the sun and say goodnight to fears. Yes, to be embraced once again by Grace
