After the Rain

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

About Brenda

"Brenda adores the birds. She is enchanted with their grace, their beauty. It was the birds and being out among them that gave her the peace she so needed and forged a new passion She uses a camera to capture those incredible moments, to savor them and share them with others. For her the camera was freedom. Brenda spent her life healing others, and dealing with incredible pain and despair. The world of birds and nature and photography was what she turned to in order to see the beautiful side of the world" -Eric Curtis Cummings
