This is the beautiful song that we sing when I teach Soul Restoration. I originally sang it gathered in a circle of Brave Girls at Brave Girls Camp. The power of a circle of women singing together is something that has always touched my soul to the core. I usually get teared up every.single.time I hear this song. When we sing it in conjunction with Soul Restoration we substitute Lover for Daughter…sing that word. Powerful.
My advice to you…crank this song, learn every word, and sing it at the top of your lungs. Often.
I have to have back surgery this week. I am so scared and full of anxiety. When we were living the infertility years I had 3 separate surgeries. 2 trying to get this body of mine to conceive and 1 to remove the only baby we were able to because it was growing in my fallopian tube. Later I had a partial hysterectomy. I wasn’t scared of those surgeries. They all happened when I was in my 30’s and my mortality wasn’t something I really thought about so much. It seems like I hit 45 and suddenly I realized that there were things that don’t recover as quickly and it scares me a little. I am more aware of the things that are happening that aren’t reversible. They are part of entering the crone years. I’m trying to get used to that fact without being afraid of the changes. It’ll be alright, it’ll be fine, fill my life with love and bravery, I will be alright.
When Tara put this on our FB group the other day it was just when I needed to hear the words.
Maybe one of you need them today too.
Live a Life Uncommon my friends.
p.s. Watch for Soul Restoration coming to an art cabin near you in the next few months. It’s a magical experience!
