I am going through one of the most profound moments of healing of my life so far and it is deep. The difference with previous times I have had to face this trauma was that anger kept coming up. Now there is only peace.
From that place of peace I feel a strong connection with my mother lineage return. The bond between me and my mother is stronger than ever and growing by the week. And this morning the presence of my beautiful grand mother was palpable.
My grandmother was one of the most loving, kind and generous humam beings I have ever had the honour of knowing. Looking back now, I can see the incredible impact she has had on my life as an example of unconditional love.
These earrings were hers. They have been were I have been and have joined me through every curve and corner of my endless packing and unpacking of suitcases and boxes.
I love them. And still wear them. And on a day like today, they help me to remember that all is well in the end. If things are not well, it's not the end.
My grandmother died when I was 18.
18 years ago.
