The shadows of a person represent one’s weaknesses but without this recognition …we would not grow stronger and turn forward focusing on new opportunities and adventures.
The Ya’s have all lost and re-discovered our shadows-after two and a half years… today we will reunite at Edisto ! This reunion has not come easy. Life-threatening disease, long-distance moves, family crises and unexpected emergencies have all tried to dissolve our gathering this week-but we are Ya YaStrong!
In coming back together for much needed rest and peace we also acknowledge that our individual paths leading us here do not take us to task to judge the worthiness of our paths, but instead demands we walk our paths with worthiness .
This week will be filled with laughter and no doubt-some tears but at this stage in our lives we are coming to realize that we all are seeking the spirit in the small moments of our everyday life.
So until tomorrow… this week will be a celebration of the ordinary, a reminder that when all else is stripped away, a life lived with love is enough!
