“I fell in love with you because of the million things you never knew you were doing.” ~ Unknown ~
To my love….
Thank you for your eternal patience,
while I shift, shed, rage and morph into my true essence.
Thank you for your encouragement,
while I struggle to wash away ancient blood and wrong ideas about myself.
Thank you for your warm embrace,
while I cry and grieve the loss of my ego-self.
Thank you for your support,
while I repeatedly and powerfully crash-land trying out my new wings.
Thank you for your tireless efforts to hold it all together,
while I anxiously search for a new life’s purpose beyond motherhood.
Thank you for your stability,
while I move between anger and bliss like a toddler.
Thank you for your generosity,
even when I’m wallowing in self-cherishing.
Thank you for your brilliance,
while I grope in the darkness before my dawning.
Thank you for staying diligently with me on this journey toward awakening,
even when we sometimes lose sight of each other along the way.
Thank you for having faith in my strength and courage,
even when I doubt myself.
Your extraordinary greatness inspires me to grow into my own greatness.
The strength of your love breaks opens my fearful heart.
The equanimity of your being quells my restless and anxious spirit.
I’m filled with deep gratitude to have found my greatest love and teacher in you.
To be able to spend my life living and growing old with you is a most precious gift.
All my love, forever and ever,
