Our 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!

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.

High Five to Your Triumph!

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!

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.

She watched as the brilliant sky opened up before Her…

A new day.
A new beginning.

Full of promise…
possibilities and inspiration.

She was encouraged
to find strength

to finish what
She had started.
