I’m grateful for so many things this week.
I’m grateful for my dress that made itself and threw my grand schemes unceremoniously aside.
I could have created a woodland ballgown, but in the end – it wouldn’t have been just me. I needed to feel inside my skin as myself. No tugging or pulling or worrying. No extra trains or trims. Just a walk into the woods with my love to bind our best parts, and our worse parts too – to each other.
This Friday I’m grateful for wisdom. I’m grateful for clear sight – and challenges. My most favorite place on earth may be flooded, a torrent of debris and muddy water. I may not be able to get to my plans or my vision but I will stand in the most important thing I’m traveling to do and it will be what matters.
I’m grateful for surrender. For challenges that strip away all the excess so we can clearly see the thing.
And I’m grateful for the ways things come together, most especially, when you let go.
I’m grateful for hard magic.
I’m grateful for standing on bridges in the dark of night.
I’m grateful for the constant reminder that life & the landscape itself -will change.
I’m grateful that I have my home, my family, my friends, my love. I’m grateful for the gentle reminders of What Matters.
And friends – I’m grateful for a break – a minute to soak into life and explore foreign shores. For not giving a damn what I do or where I go as long as there is coffee and ease and a hand to hold for 10 whole days.
For this healthy body that will let me trek all over.
For pure abandonment towards joy.
For Gracia. For the wild, unbelievable, ludicrous, perfect, poignant, story of our life.
YAY! Congratulations!! YAAAAAAY!!!!
