Dear Little Me, You don’t care, do you? You don’t care at all. Their opinion doesn’t sway you one bit. Their perceptions of you and this whole situation? Doesn’t phase you a second. That 6th birthday card, those wrapped-up presents with pretty pink bows on top, the birthday party that made you feel oh so special?…

Dear Little Me, I stared at this picture of you forever. Something about it’s paralyzing to my soul. I can’t capture what it is. Why am I staring at a girl so brave? A girl so free? A girl so pure? Where did she go? When did she get lost? Why was she kidnapped in the darkness…

Dear Little Me, Look at that hair. Just look at that hair. You don’t care about your hair. You let it be. Wild and free. Big. Flowing. Part wavy. Part straight. Bushy, but beautiful. Beautiful. Why not leave it at that, little girl? Leave it at that. Let it be. Wild and free. The way…

    Love it! I have been visiting my little girl self through these posts too (like Monica said). Your poetry flows so nicely and I could really see these “restoring the little girl” posts being a published book for young girls/women!ReplyCancel

    I’m really LOVING these posts and have been mentally visiting that “little girl me” myself. Thank you for the vulnerability…as always you amaze me!ReplyCancel

Dear Little Me, I love this picture of you, of me. Look at you, little you. There’s something you need to see. See the care in your face. See your smile. See your love, your patience. See your arm resting gently on her shoulder. See your concern for her. Not anyone around. See the way you’re looking deeper,…

Go is my one word for 2014, the word that guides everything I do. I published a post titled “Go. Like It Matters. Go. Like It’s Your Life.” on January 6, 2014. I loved that post. So much so that I’ve kept it on the home page of my blog all these months. It’s linked to a graphic…

Like It’s Your Life.” And in part by Bonnie Gray’s new book, Finding Spiritual Whitespace.

    Amy, I think we all have a chance to visit that and explore our own “Spiritual Whitespace”. That special place in our hearts and minds that each of us have… It can sometimes provide a great retrospective of memories both good and bad, and a place to remember happy moments and heal from the sad moments. I’m looking forward to see what you share with us with us all in this new chapter of your blog. TomReplyCancel
