Good morning chosen family! Thank you for choosing me and for inviting me in. Thank you for lifting me up and for wiping away my tears. Thank you for loving me like a verb. For all that I am not, there is much that I am. All of your love…all of your prayers…all of your messages and phone calls…all of you gave me reason to be here this morning. Thank you.
I would like to thank Tamara for loving me like a verb always in all ways. The road has been rocky as my life fell apart and crashed into flames. Many marriages do not survive pain like this. Many friendships dissolve in trauma and pain like this. Many people walk away. Tamara did not walk away. Many families fall apart when someone dies and people blow worlds apart. Tamara stayed. Thank you Tamara for doing what my own family could not…thank you for loving me unconditionally and for who I am. Thank you for lifting me up instead of tearing me down and for leaving me alone instead of antagonizing me when I got lost and confused. Tamara, you are my love, like a verb…for always, in all ways. Thank you for seeing in me what no one else has, not even me. I love you and I thank you for staying the course. It is time to clear space and energy for all of the good things coming in our beautiful life.
To each and every one of my family members who has stayed…thank you. Truly, you know who you are and I know who you are too. Thank you for keeping some of my roots in tact. Please know that I’ve some amazing soil for us to transplant into.
To all of my friends who never left me, even when leaving seemed like the only thing left to do…thank you for staying the course with me, for holding me in darkness and lifting me into the light. For the texts and the prayers, the cards and all of your amazing love…you have become my chosen family now. For following this blog and being here with me every day, even when I barely showed up at all, you’ve no idea how much you have helped me by being here with me. I love you. Thank you for holding space and for leaving the light on for me.
Sigrid…no words and none needed. I love you my silly little friend.
To all of you…all of my love and thanks and appreciation for holding me in this storm. I love you. Thank you for loving me too.
Regina, all of my love…my heart, my love, my beautiful friend and soul mate cousin emerging from hell with me and into our own abyss. I love you beautiful. I love you so, so much.
To all of my clients, who have become my most amazing friends and very own family as mine departed, thank you. I am so blessed and honored to be in your lives. Thank you for holding space for me when I had no space to exist in. I love you. I love you more than I can express. Thank you.
