"How To Overcome Your Problems" by a Teenager with Cystic Fibrosis
I have had the honor & privilege of recently emailing and talking with the woman who sparked within me everything that I now write about on this blog. I love the way she speaks about things. She talked of the potential of every single woman to find the treasure in her suffering; to give birth to who she really is. She reminisced that the work we did together resulted in me becoming who I really was - and that I just needed to peel away all that other stuff that I was holding in the way. She said that there is nothing infertile about me, that I am more of a mother now than I would have been, even if I had ten kids. What a wonderful woman she is. So thankful that my life crossed paths with her. So thankful each & every time that I can soak up some of her wisdom.
She recently sent me this video of a young girl who is just rocking her trial of cystic fibrosis, and just rocking life in general. I just had to share this with you...... it is so, so good. You will be amazed.
P.S. A few Love Announcements today that I can't keep from you any longer...
-Have you seen the exhilarating videos about the Holi Festival of Colors (a Hindu event that welcomes spring)? For anyone who loves color AND love, take a look. As you can imagine, I am a complete sucker for both. (Here is my favorite video I've seen so far. I want to keep watching it over & over. And here are a few more from around the world.)
-I never would have imagined that kitchen knives could create something so beautiful.
-I'm loving these cube aeriums containing small plants, a lovely version of a terrarium and an easy way to bring a little nature into your home.
-My friend had on these sandals and they were just so bright & cute! I'm loving these, too: 1, 2, 3
-I love cross-stitch & would love some hanging on my walls. It takes me back to summer projects with my 4 sisters. So naturally, I'm loving this cross-stitch jewelry, too. One day I'll sit around and leisurely do something crafty. Ha. In the meantime.....
