Peace for your Path...

"peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." (unknown) http://www.labyrinthwellness.com

best friends on the Path


Jen. Me. Jen and me...

This beautiful friend of mine is flying back home right now. She blessed my life this weekend with her presence. Every moment together was a joy. It all passed far too quickly as I knew it would from the moment I wrapped my arms around her at the airport. Yeah, I cried like a baby when I saw her, and I am crying again right now just thinking about it....

Life can be really, really (really) hard sometimes. Our faith is tested daily. We need trusted friends on the Path who will walk the journey with us holding our hands, hearing our hearts, catching our tears and celebrating even the smallest (and largest) moments of victory. When those same special soul-friends are finally sitting right next to us in the sunshine, and we can actually lean close and touch shoulders with them, then - wow - that is a moment to be captured and cherished forever.

Safe travels, my dear and precious friend. Thank you for sharing your Journey with me. I love you so much!

Jens are truly special, JenJen, you are evidence of that, too!

I AM convinced she is my lifetime soul sister, Deborah, just as you are my web-writing sister-in-spirit. Thanks for confirming that.

And Jen, I am holding you to your promise and already making plans!

Thanks to all three of you wonderful ladies for your comments. You have Graced my day.

Love,
Robin
