As I get older the things I treasure are fewer but hold more intensity. Relationships tend to take precedence in life these days. The sacredness of being on this life journey with another soul is so breathtakingly beautiful and I have such gratitude for those who have chosen to stay in my life and partake in it.
One of my very best friends has a birthday today. All birthdays are a gift. And the birthday of a very close friend is even more special. We talk every day, no secrets, we build each other up, we straighten each other up, we are equals, and we enjoy each other’s company. We are business partners and have spent the last twenty-two years (very likely longer though…pretty certain she was my mother in my last life!) building that love and companionship.
This young woman has always been an old soul. Her kindness and her empathy are evident and she is a powerful plant medicine maker and healer. She is gorgeous on the outside and just as shining and lovely on the inside. I cannot tell you how lucky I feel to have given birth to that little girl-now woman- 22 years ago.
My wish for my Shyanne Mae is that she has a lovely day and a year filled with dreams coming true. Possibilities unfolding. Laughter ringing. And peace enfolding her every desire and path on her journey. I wish her a year of great love.
Happy Birthday Shyanne! (my Pumpkin, Dad’s Cupcake) Always our baby, forever my friend.
