My girlfriend sent me the most beautiful gift, a journal. Not just any journal, the picture above is the journal she sent me. She made it. She is an artist ; she designed the cover and hand stitched the paper inside of it. The beautiful paper inside has love jumping off the pages. I cannot wait until I begin to use it in this new year. She graciously sent me a card as well. The card has the art work on it as well. She knows of my blog and really meditated on how she wanted to design my journal. Inside the card she wrote this to me:
“The blue is for peace, love is the fiery yellow/orange as you are both happy/mellow, but can be also very passionate. And soul – a mixture of gray/brown which are elemental earth colors that are tied to your down to earth personality.”
Yes, I have a tear in my eye. That was so sweet and special to me. How beautiful she wrote and then captured it in her artwork. What is most important is that she helped me really understand my own blog and why I titled it as I did. Thank you my friend; I hope everyone can have a friend such as this. The amazing thing is that we were friends in college, not real close, but friends and she has always been so sweet and kind. We have reconnected through Facebook and are finding so many similarities and parallels in our lives. She is a beautiful soul and I am glad she is back in my life. I hope everyone can have a friend as this.
Now, I am even more committed to writing in my journal, blogging and sharing. My desire is to just help myself through this life and if it helps someone else than all is well.
Here’s to friends! Here’s to writing - do it if you can, find a journal, it can be healing and cathartic to the soul.
Peace – Love and Soul Y’all (After 10 years this Californian is truly turning into a Southerner!)
