Dressing table musings with Mary

Sometimes connections come spontaneously.....

The inspiration is here with me today....

I'm flying after what feels like an eternity of being grounded....

My one constant dream is that I can fly,
the feeling is fabulous, 
I find myself being transported off the earth, 
sometimes with a downward movement of the hands and arms 
somewhat like a bird flapping the wings, but I am pushing against gravity
and magically propelling myself upwards where ~

I am among the clouds flying over land masses at speed! 

I'm wondering why everyone doesn't join me,

it is so natural...

Her drawer remains the same, untouched personal items, underwear, socksa bottle of perfume tucked away so as not to clutter the shared dressing table. "I'll leave them" she says " just in case I come back", I think what she meant was, she may return to the former days, ones we want to leave behind! 
The unspeakable days, should we have to go through it all again! 

I said "those days are gone now, leave the drawer if you like but we are not going back there"!

Yes this is one of those days I'm flying in the heavens, head back in the clouds,
I feel well, she feels well, all is well!

We never thought this day would arrive, my girl after a year in major mental breakdown is finally on her own, in her own home, and back at work, it has all been gently gently but she is gathering strength day by day.

I have been through the darkest period of my life so far!  Today is such a beautiful day, the sun shines brilliantly out of doors lighting up each exquisite moment.

I am grateful!

My daughter is not quite recovered yet. It has been years. I think I know how joyous you feel.I thank God for His mercy and beg him to restore my daughter to the full life she deserves. You touched my heart today.xx

Homecoming: coming home. . . to oneself. Who knows the places your daughter has traveled in the maps of her mind, the detours, the side roads? So glad she has found her way home. I know she was always there, in your heart.

A friendly street light illuminates the dark path as does bright hellos! Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning. Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue Recuerda mi Corazon

Gathering Myself

Today I'm taking a little me time, doing what I love to do, just digital doodling. My mind has been on dolls, motherhood, Mary and the coming season. Recently an acquaintance posted about  ' Rag Doll ',  this is me at the moment, I feel a bit like a rag doll, the stuffing has been knocked out a little. So I'm taking time to just be, to gather myself, to see where I can patch things up a bit, maybe a dash of rouge will do the trick!  I'm giving myself some 'Mary mother love'. I'm sending back my thanks via Virgin a Day Recuerda mi Corazon I once had a sweet little doll, dears, The prettiest doll in the world; Her cheeks were so red and so white; dears, And her hair was so charmingly curled. But I lost my poor little doll, dears, As I played in the heath one day; And I cried for her more than a week, dears; But I never could find where she lay. I found my poor

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends... By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering... On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'
