9952970E-4665-4988-AA78-BF09351D1182She lives in the magic of my joy…

As another month marks
the day that my Angel Bailey’s
physical body took its last breath

her spirit lingers longer within me.

As I let my grief wash over me
I am feeling both sorrow and love
That girl she sure knew how to love.

She gave hugs freely. She squealed with such delight when greeting those she adored. 

As I continue to make my way through the process
of grief I am knowing
to share her passing with you
as part of my healing journey.

It is hard when faced with such a loss
to open oneself up
to accept sympathy and well meaning words
of condolences.

Especially from those who think that a dog
is just a pet rather then a member
of your sacred circle
of unconditional love.

Now that I have had time
to see her empty bed space by our front door
to still hear the tinkle of her dog collar as I walk…

I begin to know that her spirit is never very far away.

She gave me the greatest gift of joy that will forever be imprinted on my soul.

High Five to My Angel Bailey!

When you write from that place of your soul voice…a new depth of meaning comes into your work.

I have been working on my book
as many of you know
for quite a few years now.
Four to be exact.

Now that I am in the process of compiling my work I am really struck by the simplicity of the story that needs to be shared. Not all the background, behind the scenes that I think we get caught up in as writers.

I do not know where you are at with your writing journey or if you are a “journalist” as my bonus son once called me. But I encourage you to just have some fun with your writing and ‘just write’ little thoughts that come to you.

Because it really is a conversation when you write…that you are having with your soul.

Our Soul Beckons Us

IMG_9078Our soul beckons us…

to come closer
to ourselves

to experience joy
to create magic.

She lives on in the magic of my joy…

She left days after my Golden 50th birthday. She left this earth plane after her work was done. She left when her mama knew Her joy as Her own soul. 

As the summer sun faded…
our beloved Angel Bailey
took her last breath..

As tears of grief and shock
streamed down our faces
we stroked her golden fur
one last time.

all the joy and love
she had given us.

She is so entrenched in my soul
that as my heart grieves for her physical body
to run and hike and dance with me…

She is within me
now in this magical moment
of joy in honor of my sweet girl.

I AM forever blessed and full of gratitude
that no words can really express this awareness
to continue my journey in the manner of joy as she lived.

High Five to the Triumph of Joy!

“It takes a great deal of courage” She said…

to rise up
to face your own self
to see your life as it is

to accept that you can forgive yourself
to embrace your own rising with joy
to acknowledge the triumph of this journey.

I wish you could see yourself
as I see you…

as you come to know yourself
to be perfectly you.

I wish I could show you …

as a grin spreads your lips wide
across your beautiful face

as joy dances from the depth
of your eyes.

I wish for you to know
the beauty and joy of your soul.

That’s all I ask
that is everything right there.

This is my wish…for you.

Te’ shining “Her Spirit of Joy!”







As She made Her way along the river’s edge…crescent shadows fell across Her path.

The solar eclipse
of the century.

Bringing forth a new light
as the sun fully shone once again.

New energy emerged from within Her…
as crescent shadows cast their magic spell.

She felt light emerge out of the darkness… 
creating space to take hold of ones dreams. 

Love filled the spaces where fear and anxiety wanted to linger…creating space

to understand
to accept what is a given
to forgive what feels hard to heal
to trust the magic of our journey unfolding as we celebrate triumph!

High Five to Your Journey!
