"To talk to about or not to talk about? Yes, I'm going to talk about it!"
As women, I believe we only get better as we get older. However there is that fragile time for many women right before we evolve into our "soul power" stage at the crazy age that feels like a constant storm, and I'm talking about thunder and lightening! I'm 47 and it's starting to become quite evident that A - something beautiful is about to happen or B - I might lose my mind. I'm at a fragile place in my life where I feel like a Monarch butterfly in a rainstorm - The rain has washed all the powder from my wings leaving me raw and exposed to the elements and life. Keeping my grace as a butterfly in this space is not easy, but I'll find the closest flower, hang on tight and hope that the wind doesn't carry me away. I'm sure many of you are here too, so - flap your wings in the sunlight, hang on to the nearest flower and know that I understand. We, as women need one another.
We are preparing for our "Bloom and Fly" tour at the spring Marburger Farm Antique show (March 29th - April 2nd). Very befitting for spring, but also descriptive of where I am at this point in my life as a child of God, a woman, a wife, a sister, and a friend. I've always found it fascinating that flowers will bloom in the craziest of situations, as if their resilience is more powerful than any obstacle or challenge presented to them. I know you've seen a flower in the crack of some sidewalk in a major city with no sunlight or water, and thousands of feet completely unaware..... The flower stands tall and says "I'm alive, and what a glorious life it is!" I too want to bloom with this kind of resilience so I can then fly. Come bloom and fly with me,
