JOY

Awaken to our own joy!

Sometimes meandering down a new path brings us unexpected magic…

just as writing from a clear space gives a fresh perspective.

High Five to Your Triumph!

BEING ALIVE

Seems like it is necessary
to remember…

the magnificence
of our being alive

of living
of loving

Who we are.

High Five to Your Triumph!

I AM so excited to continue this journey of writing with you. Today. Here now in this amazing moment of being alive…as I sit in sunshine with my golden girl. I feel so much gratitude.

MAGICAL JOY

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!

TRIBUTE to ANGEL BAILEY

1609FC29-D885-44FD-87A6-5780120F7480

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.

Blessing
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!

I WISH

IMG_8613

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 …
yourself

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.

High Five to Your Triumph!
