I am still trying to figure out what I want to write here, when, and maybe how.... so this morning while Ari was taking her nap, I intended to write something.... I wrote, and I erased some, and the I wrote some more, and then I erased even more... I did not want to force write something, and I thought I was thinking too much (which is not the real me). So the post remained a draft, which I just erased!
Then, I received an email from an old family friend, one of those mails that with just a few words make you feel special, loved, important.... that make your heart bigger and full of joy! That give you that sense of belonging that not everyone is lucky and blessed to feel in this lifetime. And suddenly, I didn´t have to think anymore, I just wanted to write, for me, for my husband, for my precious daughters, for my step sons, for my mom and dad, for my sisters, my nieces, my nephews.... and for that far away family, who after more than 30 years are still embedded in my heart, and I am sure that forever will be!
We are what we are for all that we have lived, for what we have loved, for how we have been loved, for the tears we have cried, we are a little of everyone that has somehow touched our lives.... we could´t be so selfish as to think that we are self-made, or that we are so unique that we have of no one in us.
So I guess today I just feel the luckiest person in the world, for having the family that I have, friends that I can call family, and I pray and hope that I can give my daughters the fortune to love... really L O V E the world, and to allow themselves to be loved!
.... and to always have these in mind: who would we impress if the whole world was blind?!?
