Finding Myself

And this is where I found myself, my spirit. Right there curled up in the bright pink petals, singing sweetly with the bees, turning my face warmly towards the sun. And you know, sometimes when you finally find that piece of yourself that you've been longing for, that peace of yourself that's been missing, all the walls you've been defensively constructing for so long start to crumble away. Your heart opens, your lips part, a song tunnels it's way from the dark and you finally start letting go. Yes, you finally unclench your fists, you finally lift your eyes, you finally let your soul crack open, you finally embrace the love around you. And you wonder what ever took you so long. You wonder why you haven't done this sooner. And you breathe again. And it is sweet.

So very sweet......

I cry tears of frustration that I feel so far from this at this moment-with fists clenched and walls so high I can't figure out how to scale them...

You give me hope and a sight to keep my eye on-I too want to feel that sweetness.

Love to you.

Isn't God just in the desert? Always seems so to me. I celebrate this sweetness with you, and dance in delight! (Okay, so maybe I'm just a big baby and I tear up.)

Awww, Inspiring! This flower reminded me of you right when I saw it. I totally invisioned you with the bright, hot pink flower tucked behind your ear (minus the thorns of course). Lovely!

AMAZING. So utterly beautiful and eye-opening and lovely. This is so soft and sweet and simple, but at the same time, bold and strong and brave. I adore it. These moments seem to make life all worth while. And it is sweet.
