It is late here in the Heart of Ohio, my crafting for the day at it's end, my thoughts collected and ready to share, unexpected revelations to drift me off to sleep.
Friendship usually kept at a safe distance was today allowed to wash over me like sunlight on a hillside. My entire person felt lighter and unexpectedly at home. Personal stories shared in the past did not mark me forever, "damaged goods" as I thought they always did.
The bravery it takes to declare the unexpected is bravery I most admire. To know in your heart that your core being does not change in unwanted circumstances is affirmation that those you call friend have often told you so.
I am so thankful that so many of us have told our sweet Renee that she does not stand alone in the days ahead. She stands with the support of her many friends.
And this is not at all unexpected.
