CRESCENT SHADOWS

IMG_8476.JPG

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!

Freedom in Forgiveness

“There is freedom in forgiveness.”

…but in my growing up years
I AM learning that in forgiveness

there is freedom.
There is more room and space for love.

INNER STRENGTH

image

We get these internal nudges all the time.
Asking us to stop and pay attention…

to what is before us
to what is within us.

Our intuition.
Our God voice.
Our knowing.

The more we heed it
the more we pay attention
the more we listen

the more we understand
the more our self confidence grows
the more we are able to be open to…

the direction our life takes us.
The stronger our inner strength is.
This is the celebration of your triumph!

High Five to You!

THEIR FUTURE

image

“The space had opened as another door of the not too distant past closed… ushering in their future.”

Every person wonders
even laments

that they have let the years slip by
until the only thing that is pulling them

is the beckoning
of the future.

To step boldly
unknowingly

with uncertainty
into the mystery

of vast possibilities
of the unknown.

To be open
to forge a new path

where they had never gone before…
their future.

High Five to Your Triumph!

Even So

image

I don’t want to be fixed
because you think I’m broken

even if I am.

I don’t want to be ignored
because you think it may make everything go away

even if it won’t.

I don’t want to be any other way
because you think it is how I am supposed to be

even if I may.

I simply want to be free to be me
because I think I know what’s best for me

even if you don’t.

As I acknowledge with gratitude
celebrating and loving who I AM

even so.

High Five to You!

A Mother’s Reflection

image

I may have never held you in my arms as an infant,
welcoming you into the world through sweat and tears.

But I have held you in my heart like a precious being.
A whisper of love.

I may have not been there to celebrate your first words,
your first steps or your first birthday.

But I have held you in my heart as we celebrated together.

I may not have been there for many
of your very early years…

I can honestly say this now as a mother.
I have loved you since I first held you in my arms.

When I first welcomed you into my world as you welcomed me.
I have loved you for the first of our life together and always.

Thank you for the firsts you have shared with me,
both your sorrows and your triumphs.

I love you very dearly and am blessed too by your love.
As your ‘bonus’ mama.

I wrote this poem for my two bonus son’s who daily teach me to love…especially the things in life we don’t always understand or want too.

This poem is also written for those of us who have had the honour of being a mom without the stretch marks to prove it! 

Enjoy celebrating the wonder of being a mother! – Te’
