Quiet Strength 11/20

I was at a local playground yesterday with Clay the 4 year old that I watch. Immediately my attention was caught by a little tiny tiny baby being held by her mom.

The mom told me the baby was just 7 weeks old. Then I realized this mom was suffering.

She not only had that baby but also two boys about 5 and 6 years old who were a little challenged for manners so to speak.

The extent of the moms suffering I do not know. But the exhausted pain was all over her face and in her posture. Her energy concerned me a bit. I felt bad for her.

She said nothing. She complained not for one second.

The baby was fussing, the boys were restless and this mom just sat in it quietly trying to nurse her child.

I wish the lady screamed and took her power back….

But then I realized she was in her power. She sat quietly strong and took care of her own.

I keep finding these beautiful displays of gods grace in the others. The strangers even.

I am so appreciative that my eyes are open today and allow me to witness these gifts.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!

  1. I even got a nudge from Spirit this morning in the simplest of things…but I needed to share it because to another it can make a great difference. Holding back and standing in our fear is a disservice to us and the other. Beautiful post, your empathy and love is growing well, from giving it to yourself first 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

      1. The Spirit of the bible is that beautiful loving feeling when we give from our hearts, and especially when we have gone through our fears and are now really open, no longer hesitant, and it will ask us in many ways to be that love we have become. That is the true meaning of unconditional, to allow, to be, that channel of love when it wants to come through to another…or ourselves, no longer restricted by those ‘what if’s’ in our lives. And yes, it does take time, we have had a lifetime of walls around our hearts but it is that very action of facing them and bringing them down that will show us the meaning of what unconditional truly is…and set us free 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
