So just a little update quickie!
As expected things have improved. Last week was HARD. My My My. But with work and the support of my husband and crazy cousin who contacted me out of nowhere, my head is above water and I am not fighting the current. I’m purposing to relax and ride the wave.
I love presenting as a woman and all that comes along with it! At our best, we reign supreme as nurturers and healers. Let me better clarify lest I evoke confusion (especially nowadays in the U.S.) I say presenting because that is how I describe our earthly assignments during this Natural Experience we call Life. I am Spirit made flesh presenting as a Proud Feminine Woman of the Soulful, Resilient and Beautiful Black American Tribe residing on God’s soil occupied by Ones who fought battles and won to give it the name USA.
(Whew, I love the gift of poetry God has given me! Something about the right words used in the right way at the right time. It can be nothing short of genius, but I digress;)
Although it’s most likely that when we are down it is a woman who is most often there to lift us up, for me this time around there was not a woman to be found. I received all my help nurturing and healing from men! I’m so happy about that. It’s funny because their energy was SO masculine. The approach was very, “Get Up Soldier!” I even had to say a time or two, heyyy, be mindful fellas, I’m a woman here not a man- you don’t handle a wine glass and a mug the same way! LOL! These men meant business and in typical man fashion they were going to save me and win. Neither had any idea what the other was saying as I spoke to them at different times but they spoke from the exact sames places of care, concern and although you may have had to dig in a bit to find it through that masculine veneer, compassion. I don’t know what it was but these men even- are you ready- LISTENED!!! haha!
It didn’t stop there! The divine care I received from Abba through men, on my first day back in the gym in days, was evident in the greetings I received and the doors held for me upon entry and exit! As Deniece Williams said in her 198? song- Let’s Hear it for the Boys!!!
It moves me to think of it! Everyday Men are not often praised for the WAY they nurture, heal and help. Today in Honor of my Husband and Cousin, I want to give a shoutout to all the men who do just that- in the most masculine of ways-smh-lol! Because of them, I am convinced that not only am I easing into my float, but the sun is peaking from behind the clouds faster than it would have otherwise!
