HOLDING!


I received word today from a friend of mine that she had lost someone dear to her. When these things happen, even if there is illness involved, it still takes so much energy to process it, to find a place to put it, to grieve, to love, to live. And my heart is pouring forth a great compassion for my friend, and while feeling this way for her, it reminded me to take a close look at the loved ones who surround me. Surround me with love, and support, and creative energy. So today, as my heart is soft and gentle with someone else, my heart is soft and gentle with myself...I am holding on tightly to the sweetness of my loves, my family, my friends, my truths, my creativity...and although some are no longer with me, and now no longer with my friend, I hold fast knowing that all is exactly as it should be. So, that is my wish for all who venture to this page today, take a moment or more and hold on to your loves, let them know how you feel, do not let another day go by with words unsaid.
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

Pattie,
What a great reminder to remember the people, the gifts in our lives. To hold them near and dear for they are precious I also heard in your words the personification of your creativity. Like it is one of our best friends. I am rather blown away by the power in which that concept opened up to me as I read your words.
Thank you.
Lori

Lori...
I am so glad that the concept of creativity opened up to you on a personal level!! Because we are the weaver of our dreams, and our creativity is so much a part of who we are and our dreams...When you honor this to your highest degree you become happier with yourself!!And just as we need to let others around us know how you care...you must also let yourself know that you care about what it is that will make you happy!!!!!
It is such a growing thing!!
Happy to have lit a candle for you today!!
Artfully Yours,
Pattie
