our quilt healer...

this photo
is making
it's way...
.
 
...around the world
 on facebook
as part of the
"i am" campaign
by the idsc
as of this moment
it has been shared
 more than 290 times
it has over 2,300 likes
and more than
175 comments
in several languages
it's impact is far reaching
yet
the irony
of this photo
of that green dress
of that day
is this...
the last time it was posted
in cyberspace
it created a firestorm
of anger
of resentment
of a venomously hateful tirade
and it shut me down for
days, weeks even
and then
slowly
 i started
over
a new beginning
with wobbly legs
  yet just like a newborn foal
i started to stand up
for myself
for my family
for sarah
and slowly yet
very deliberately
i found new footing
on more solid ground
and soon
life took an amazing turn
one that was so
divinely lead
there were days it felt
greater than award winning fiction
i realized a path
had been created
for us
our purpose
 was taking shape
and i started to see the fruits
of our hard work
our belief in something
greater
a higher power
was confirmed
i am humbled
that our story
is making such a
difference for others
there is no irony that the
message is this
all life is precious
indeed it is

it's all coming together...

just a few
 weeks ago
i wrote about...
.
 
 my fifty third birthday
twenty thirteen
was going to be the year
i was so looking forward to
for the first time in
my life
i feel like i am
beginning to see
how life all
comes together
how cleansing your heart
 makes room
for so much more
and that
 believing in myself
believing in others
believing in miracles
just believing
was allowing a
 beautiful synergy
and creating an atmosphere
for humbled greatness
the first of which
 is now in print
