Did anyone see “Horton Hears the Who”? Remember the part where they are screaming “We are here, we are hear, we are hear”? I saved this picture of Jamie from the summer that I knew I wanted to blog, but I didn’t know what kind of post to put with it. We were all on a walk and we were picking flowers. He picked one up and started whispering into it. I knew right away what he was doing and captured it as fast as I could before he got embarrassed The imagination and curiosity of this shot ignites a desire in me that comes from being tired of creating labels most of my day. What if it wasn’t a flower at all and it was the flower with a the whole community of Whoville sitting in it?
I was reminded of the picture of Jamie today when I was talking on the phone with Jake. I was sharing with the details of an incredible meeting that I had today with a friend with MS. The first time that we met (almost a year ago) we were working overtime on labeling each other and our disease. We weren’t totally able to see each other’s paths for what they were because we were busy building walls. This time, almost one year later, we were able to have a conversation about our lives, our families, our passions. MS was talked about it terms of blessings and a side note that has brought incredible change to both of our lives. I couldn’t have asked for a more healing and much-needed day Thank you Sandii). Then I get on the phone with Jake to process and let him in on the excitement of the day. I voiced that very often I feel alone in the decisions and changes that must be taken. I want him to be more intentional with me (not for me) about the changes that we want to make as a family. And he said the 3 most healing words that I could have asked for….”I am here”. Thats all I needed to hear today:)
