- Vows. Earth Medicine. Feeling full. Feeling whole and holy. That feeling when I read them. I will read every day. Why don’t we do that with our wedding vows? I want to write my wedding vows. I was young when I said ‘I do.’ We have been through a lot. Yes. I will suggest this. Whether he does or not. I am rewriting my vows to him, to us.
- Let’s go away for the weekend he said. We need to do more of that he said. I smiled. This second chapter is beginning.
- The hummingbird. It came right at me. I jumped. Oh how I wish I could have captured her on film. As fast as she appeared she disappeared over the roof of the house.
- They lost their baby. Full term. My heart hurts for them. Sweet baby boy, may you rest in peace.
- Another cherry tomato from the garden. The nasturtium blooming. Bright orange. I love the green and color in my two little planter boxes.
- He brought more flowers for the front. Tall daisies! They look like miniature sunflowers. I love them! He has done such a beautiful job with our yard.
- An afternoon nap. Reading I couldn’t keep my eyes open. Finally surrendering to my heavy lids and early rise. Curling up under my favorite mexican blanket from Arizona, I’m done for.
- Sitting by the fire. For hours this evening. The smell of citronella. Mosquito free. It’s working. I’m in my happy place.
Remember, a good marriage is like a campfire. Both grow cold if left unattended. ~H. Jackson Brown Jr.
