Sorry for the silence. Let's just say, i've been feeling sick on and off for the last three weeks and today, i'm feeling sad. I'm not going into any details here, because it's complicated and because this is the place where i prefer to share the fun parts, and the bright shiny moments in my days. The good news, sewing and photographing my girl help me to feel better, and as with everything - this too will pass.
I created this particular photo for a number of reasons. First, this is Kuroo, with her beloved new friend Ranunculus. I love this photo, and it especially speaks to me and here's why.
When i was little this is how i felt about my doll, named Charlotte. Nothing made me feel safer in this world than Charlotte. Of course my parents did, but yet as a child, i could always count on her. Being a little sad and down today, i can honestly tell you, to have Charlotte to snuggle would've been lovely ~ to once again feel the security that i felt back then, like the feeling in this photo.
In the midst of gloominess, i found grace and i found security, yet it wasn't from anything outside of me, it was something i already have. This is also one of those time that i've felt what it really means to have a blog, to have a community of people, people that you have never even met in person, who are there for you. So as silly as it sounds, thanks for your comments, thanks for being here, thanks for following this blog, thanks for your emails.
Here's wishing you a happy week ahead.
I'm reminded again, that everything is always working out just as it should and if you need a Charlotte ~ she comes in many forms.
Love to you and yours.
