For The Love ...

Greetings dear reader, I have returned from my summer hiatus from blogging just in time for Down Syndrome Awareness Month that starts tomorrow: October 1. I have been on a summer journey of turning inward, listening, experiencing and growing. We have just survived our transitions into the new season of fall and this time of the year is a beautiful time to embrace change, take life inventory and clean house; both physical and spiritual, internal and external.

A gorgeous friend of mine shared this and it resonated with me so naturally I felt compelled to digitally pay it forward. Thank You Yogi Angela.

For the love of a tree,
she went out on a limb.
For the love of the sea, 
she rocked the boat.
For the love of the earth,
she dug deeper.
For the love of community,
she mended fences.
For the love of the stars,
she let her light shine.
For the love of spirit,
she nurtured her soul.
For the love of a good time,
she sowed seeds of happiness.
For the love of the Goddess,
she drew down the moon.
For the love of nature,
she made compost.
For the love of a good meal,
she gave thanks.
For the love of family,
she reconciled differences.
For the love of creativity,
she entertained new possibilities.
For the love of her enemies,
she suspended judgment.
For the love of herself,
she acknowledged her worth.
And the world was richer for her

It is time to acknowledge all that you are, your immeasurable worth and contributions to the world. I will spend the next month doing the same for people with Down Syndrome. 

Every life has value.
