is the month that I always take the time
to write a love letter to myself ...
and I wrote
a very long letter directly on the page..
and took time to remember everything
that I have accomplished this year..
much of which cannot be seen with the eye..
Today is the first
anniversary of my Mother's death..
I did not expect to grieve as one would..
for a Mother that is close and loving..
my Mother was estranged from me for so long...
I guess I was a bit surprised by how much
work, spiritually I still needed to address...
there was a dark cloud hanging over me
and it took a while to see it
and to release the issues.. habits
that I had been taught as a child..
and I think I will be continuing to work through them..
but they are recognized and the first step is being willing
to change, to let go and to walk fearlessly into the future..
A Red Letter Day was always an important day
highlighted in red on the calendar..
I think it is also a day in which you realize how
much you love yourself...
