If...

If he can boldly wear pink to school, with a smile on his face...







And she reminds me to sparkle, like the gem that SHE truly is... with a gift inside the cup that makes my own cup overflow...





And they, well "they" = more love than any one person can absorb in a night. And I know this, because whenever a tiny doubt enters my mind, I go and rummage through the bags of goodies, of love really, and joy, and it all comes rushing back in... leaving no room for doubt.



And if she, a stranger, can become a friend, who sent me an angel a day (there is one tiny white one hidden inside the cute purse so there are actually 7 of these), and makes me feel watched over and protected...




Plus she, if she can,  minister to both my heart, and my soul, and she remembers the chocolate, (smiles)...




And if they, at 10 and 5, tell their mother they like this one, and can see the truth in this statement...


And if she can remind me of this... which I love...



And they, two of whom I've never met, one from each coast of the US,  can wrap me in these, and these dance in my mind and play out in my head, and nourish and sustain my soul....


And if she gives of herself so freely and openly, with vitamins and minerals and fight songs on mix cd's, that boost more than my body indeed...



And if she can see clearly, I have a job to do... with chocolate too... 



 And if she at 5 years old, gets that all I really need is hope, faith, dreams, and a big heart full of love...



“All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you’re not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you’re the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no’s become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES.”  Nike


Then I say "yes, I can too!"

  2. I have chilly bumps all over me! Because I know you CAN! I know YOU can! I KNOW you can! OK, so where do I put the emphasis????? It all boils down to "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." I learned that when I was on the floor hugging a toilet, through surgery, through radiation. Sometimes I said it when I had almost no breath left, and I shouted it in victory when it was all over! You go, girl! YOU CAN!!!!!

  11. Hi dear Vicky. The love that surrounds you stretches through the computer and meets me, and I smile to think of all this and how you have generated it.

    You are loved, and that's what you need to remember most in the days ahead, Beloved.

    Hugs,

    Roxane
