You were there


You were truly there for me

You listened to me

In a way I was not listened to before

You validated how I felt

When I was tempted to be hard and punishing with myself

You showed me a path to self acceptance, compassion and love

  Your love was not conditional

On me being or not being a certain way

Your unconditional loving presence

Gave me the most powerful gift

This afternoon I cried while I tried to express in words

Exactly what you give

And have given to me

In many ways you remind me of my beautiful sister

I lost

And I will always be so grateful

For the day you came into my life

Thank you so much

For all you give to me

For being fully present

For this unconditional love

More precious to me

Than gold

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
