I want to tell you about the sound of my daughter's laughter when it overflows out of her body and onto the memories of all who surround her.
I want to tell you about the way one deep breath, and then another, brings me closer to love when I make the choice to pause and breathe and listen.
I want to tell you about the birds, oh those birds, who sing every morning with no concern for who is running for president or who has a cleaner kitchen or what words make the perfect sales page.
I want to tell you about the light in our new home and how it heals me every single morning.
I want to tell you about the fire in me that simmered for so long and is now licking at my insides.
I want to tell you about that morning on vacation when I slipped out of bed and went down the hall to find Ellie, and we both wore long dresses and walked out onto the beach while most people were sleeping and took photos of one another twirling in the water and the magic was shimmering in the air and I knew we would never forget.
What stories are waiting inside you, dear heart? What stories are you wanting to tell?
