For my child…

I believe today’s reflection speaks for itself…

my darling daughter

it is years since that bastard raped you.

do you still feel the pain of betrayal and used-ness?

how can you not?

or am I not capable of moving beyond this indignity done to you,

my flesh and blood

my beautiful little girl.

I know you suffer still;

I hear it and see it when you don’t know I am watching you.

my heart is so tied to yours because I carried you and fed you and loved you

and still do love you.

please know this always

my dear darling child…

a rainy day

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
