A fearless rest….
Remembering an easy gift idea.
an ageless beauty tonic
perfect for these hurried days.
Look into your own familiar eyes,
and, even if they disappoint,
lavish on forgiveness thick
for every misstep and bobble,
every gnarly whoops and fumble,
forgive it all
to go live your true colors.
Yeah, get out there in the jolt and jostle of everything
and just be you.
That’ll do.Your own heart untangled,
that fresh willowy feeling
of breathing deep and limber
beautiful gift, that. Re-apply generously
I wish you a fearless rest about it.
“I’m not a smart man
but I know what love is.”
Hi Jennifer, what great gift ideas for the self. I could use some rest but I’m having a hard time knowing where to find it, lol.
Keep that warm heart of your kindled.
prayers for eyes to see the spaces
and settle into them,
(sometimes it happens in motion,
love and peace, friend,
Beautiful words and a beautiful reminder from your beautiful self. Thank you.
thanks for coming by to remember with me;)
love and peace, friend,
And a fearless rest to you too my friend….’lavish on forgiveness thick’ so important to me and I stumble and bumble about.
more and more important to me
as I make peace with the me
that I am:)
thanks for coming by, friend,
You fill up my heart with your poems. They are so selfless and real. So, off we go to try to be as real as we can be and not be effected by any stresses of the holidays. You remind me Jennifer. I send you full and happy days filled with doing all those things you most love and with the people you most care to be with. Love, Susie
P.S. Don’t pointsettias just fill your heart? How can they have such beauty and color? I have them all over my house and they are keeping me busy with watering!
what a bounty of blessing….thanks Susan:)
So much love:)
And, yes, poinsettias fill my heart
all December long and I love especially the unique
ones that dare to do un-red:) Really brighten my days.
Thanks for coming by…..love and peace,
A lovely reminder, especially at this time of year…hard to do everything perfectly!!
Merry Christmas Jennifer…hope you have a beautiful holiday!!
and while everything is hardly perfect,
it’s beautiful that we get to be here
and part of the celebration.
