Email Diary

I write notes to myself in my email.
Do you?

I write letters that I will never send.
Do you?

I send journal entries to my sister or dear friends when there's something that begs to be shared.
Do you?

Today my sister sent me one of her journal entries. There are times that the distance between us feels massive. This is one of those times.

Together we find clarity in what we know to be true. Her words came right out of my heart today and I thought I'd share them with you.

"So there’s something to work towards.

Grace. Love. Compassion. Tenderness. Resilience. Hope. Pride. Beautiful, beautiful authenticity. Just being where I’m at."

Wherever this finds you on your journey take heart in knowing somewhere out there someone else is going through some version of your story. They've felt what you're feeling and I promise- It will always be ok.  Better even.

With "Grace. Love. Compassion. Tenderness. Resilience. Hope. Pride. Beautiful, beautiful authenticity."

Lacy (and Kayla)

I used to write poems. I don't know what happened to the two books of poetry I wrote in junior high and high school. I occasionally jot down phrases now, but just whatever pops into my head.
