this little blue felted acorn was purchased on etsy awhile back...quite awhile, but, i knew when i purchased it, it would be part of one of my 'stories'! (now one of my all time favorite assemblages) it's the perfect symbol for growth for me. she helps me remember how much i've grown...and what is still possible.
today, i visited with a dear friend of mine and her mom. her beautiful mother is in her nineties...and is truly a woman of pure light and love. you can't miss it...no, way. when in her presence i see what is possible. as i was driving there, i became teary-eyed...just knowing i was going to be with her today, and what a gift i would receive. i was right. she was lovely. her husband passed away a few months ago, and now...she is preparing to depart this life. i will miss her something awful...but, i happen to believe she will have that dear man of hers waiting with open arms to greet her. she has missed him dearly...they were inseparable on earth. so the acorn grows...“The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.” ralph waldo emerson ~ grow in love, grow in knowledge, grow in friendship, grow in trust, grow in forgiveness, grow in joy, grow in expression, grow in the divine, grow in solitude, grow in peace, grow in light, grow...grow...grow! a thousand ways...a thousand forests. night y'all!
here is the full shot of this assemblage...she's named 'crown me' and can be found in my book...she's more beautiful in real life!
