Today was a day where it felt like it was more than I could hold coming off an already intense week. This past week, I wanted to scream, cry and rant. Then little whispers fell into my lap; unexpected conversations, surprise prayer offerings, hugs from the not so little's and I remembered I was already holding it.
So, I allowed for the blessings of tears and the story they were releasing. I took deep breaths before I reacted. I got really honest with myself and others I needed to. Then...I accessed my own words I often write, took a step back, and I did the hard things. I kept going...
Today, as a family I felt we all had these feelings with the end of the school year approaching this Friday, a total destruction of my laptop unintentionally by our dog, new schedules arising for our trio and some uncertainty. So, I took us to the labyrinth. Our go to release, prayer, meditation and family coming together.
My word I left at the labyrinth's center after walking was fear and I decided to take with me for the continued week ahead, trust.
