Love notes 1-9:
(Inspired by the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Security)
To my kiddos:
There aren’t enough stars for all the wishes I’d make for you.
But if I were to create a post for the WordPress weekly photo challenge of Wish, this is where I might start.
I wish you won’t ever feel the need to spend too much time inspecting yourself in the mirror.
But when you do examine your reflection:
“Take everything that’s bright and beautiful in you and introduce it to the shadow side of yourself. Let your altruism meet your egotism, let your generosity meet your greed, let your joy meet your grief. Everyone has a shadow… But when you are able to say, “I am all of the above, my shadow as well as my light,” the shadow’s power is put in service of the good. Wholeness is the goal, but wholeness does not mean perfection, it means embracing brokenness as an integral part of your life.”

For starters, just look up at the stars.
With all my love,
Here are a few desirable qualities in a husband:
✅ He’ll leave the last slice of cheesecake/cup of coffee for you.
✅ He’ll tickle your children until they lay like giant, limp slugs on the carpet, breathless with joy.
✅ He’ll remember to ask you how your meeting/test/doctor’s appointment went.
✅ He’ll willingly attend a musical with you, even though he will almost certainly fall asleep or die of boredom.
✅ He’ll get out of bed and look after the child/feline who decides that 4 a.m. is a beautiful hour to start the day.
✅ He won’t get irritated because you made and posted pictures of him wandering off alone, deep in thought.
Happy birthday, Husband. Thanks for all you do 💓
