You know how children often draw lots of pictures and give them to people?
Well, I was the lucky recipient of many, many drawings during my divorce - from some of my dearest little Brooklyn friends.
It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.
As I sat in my home alone - after adjusting a few things to try and make it my own - I couldn't bear to throw out those drawings as they came in.
And so, I taped them to my kitchen wall in a tetras display.
Pretty soon the wall was nearly covered, and a nearby door, too.
I began to add cards that people had sent (isn't that the loveliest thing ever to receive a piece of mail?)
I taped up receipts from brunches with friends.
Or movie tickets from a friends birthday night.
I added photos of dear ones.
The display got wider and wider and was quite literally BURSTING with evidence of LOVE; of a beautiful life; of hope; of abundance; of friendship.
It made my heart melt every time I looked at it.
(I wish I had a better photo of it. After a couple of years, it eventually got narrowed down to just the door. :)
In case you're needing some reminders of how loved you are - or how dang beautiful your life is- begin collecting EVIDENCE. It is out there.
P.S. Here's an idea: once your Love Wall gets started, SEND ME A PHOTO and share one or two things that you added to it. Would you please? It would be way too fun (and inspiring) to share it on the blog! firstname.lastname@example.org.
