Here I am, just another day in the life of Charlotte, just holding on. Holding onto everything stuck inside me, wanting to be released, on the brink of bursting out. Writing is a great release and provides an outlet for the thoughts and words spinning in my head. I have great support for the days that are heavier than others. I am very blessed to have friends and family that support me. I try to be kind and understand and ask the same in return. There is beauty in helping others, truly we are surrounded by the beauty of God’s creation. We must open our eyes to see the beautiful things that surround us. People, places, things, buildings, parks, art, nature…everything. I am often in awe of nature speaking to my soul. I love taking pictures of water, the sky, the moon, buildings…outdoors! I feel very connected to God through these things. I also love music and how it can transcend you to the past and make you dream of the future.

I read this quote recently and it tugged at my heartstrings…

“She walks, as if from a dream, into your life,
ribboned hair unraveling, brown eyes
like cups of tea, come to whisper
a secret into your trembling ear.

Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, excerpted from “Crossing the Divide” in The Wisdom of Wild Grace: Poems

Wow…that’s beautiful.
