the space between…

November 21, 2011

For the past several months, there has been no space between anything…kids, work, unexpected life lessons, kindness, travel, revelations, loss, all of it seems to keep coming.  At moments it has felt like there was no space to even take a breath.  And the joy and work of new opportunities for kindness has all been so worth it but my mind, body and heart are simply exhausted.

So I said no, yes! (but later) and I’m not sure because I need a rest…all new territory for me. It was tricky but I am taking the rest of the week off…don’t worry, you are in very good kind hands. Some lovely friends, new and old will be bringing their own light and beauty to Kindnessgirl this week…I know you will enjoy.

Can I just tell you how grateful I am for you though? Thank you for lighting candles and passing on missions and loving me and my messy self and family so well. There is so, so much gratitude to reflect on this year for me. It makes me want to be quiet because I’m not sure there are words. Jorge, the kids and I hope you are feeling the same way this week, that you know deep in your bones that you are loved, that a family in Richmond, Virginia will be thinking of you and your family, counting you as one of our blessings, in the midst of our lazy pajama wearing Thanksgiving.

xo,

patience
