The woman I am, shall not be the woman I will be or the woman I once was.
The morning always brings another beginning, thank God.
And I, always becoming, am not allowed to go back to the once was… that woman is no longer there.
Older. Wiser. I have learned to live and let live.
I, after years, have acquired perspective which lends me sanity, sanity where once there was none.
The pains that once overwhelmed and undermined the nurturing, developing woman that I was, helped to shape the woman that I am now becoming.
If only mastering and accepting these lessons, if only I could blindly trust, there is a gift, the gift of change that accompanies each pain.
I am becoming and with becoming comes peace. I can see and sense this for I know where I was yesterday.

BTW: I posted some of Matt’s poems. He wrote those when he was 12 years old. Imagine…
OH yippee! I will look for them. I popped on PINK to leave you something. I love what sweet Jodie wrote. It made me cry! So precious she is! HUGS
I saw and loved! I dropped some pink on you right about at the same time! I just spent hours in your blog. I love your words and your art so much and I get so lost inside the beautiful pages, sad or happy, and I don’t even realize the hours are going by. Your blog is like a much loved, favorite book and I always find new pages. XO
Wow thank you! You know what I saw some posts I don’t remember posting but when I read them I thought OMG I’ve had me some healing! I think girl we are blogging ourselves well! LOL Wouldn’t that be a hoot! 🙂 Thank you so so much! I was just on my way over to read Matt’s poems.
Yes, I think writing the way we do is very healing. I really mean it too about loving your posts.
Me too! I’m getting stronger!
Amen…how far our baby girls have come since we first met. Amen.
