So! I was so excited to go see her yesterday & spend sometime on the coast in Santa Barbara where she lives today .
Dave (my hubby) & I had our grandbaby Athena with us so all three of us took a nice ride up the coast , it was beautiful . My grandbaby & Lynn hit it off pretty well , they were friends in seconds as you can see here at the beach . My camera was my artist date, because it captured what I thought finding my friend meant to me . When I look at this photo I took , its a message from my higher self telling me, that life just keeps going , we leave our mark , our footprints on this planet in hopes that we won't be forgotten , that someone is thinking of us , or that we will be remembered for our art that we leave behind as we embark on another spiritual journey .
In this photo my artist date tells me , that even thought all those years past where I lost contact with Lynn , that her & I could continue where we left off . We would all take turns going into the water with Athena & the other two who waited to take their turn , would just catch up in conversation. What I see is , " Here we still stand , more evolved than the last we saw eachother ."
Lynn is a free soul . I always have loved her stories of all the trips she has taken in all of Asia from ,the Phillipines , to Thailand ,Japan and how she would live in those countries & work to get the money up to go to her next destination , she has no fear and Im inspired by that . She is probably the most strongest woman I know , especially us middle aged woman who seek being fearless. She has also faced what alot of us women have had happen to us , breaking away from bad relationship with our spouse . She can never say she didn't try , and feels shes found her freedom again after leaving an abusive relationship . This photo that my artist date shows me , is seeing Lynn finally free again , and Im so happy she is , she so deserves that.
Watching my grandbaby & my hubby make sandcastles was amazing . To see Athena discover making sandcastles with her grandpa just touched my heart in the most warm & fuzzy way . This photo reminded me to always embrace these memories and cherish the moments with my grandbaby Athena .
In conclusion to my date , what it reminded me is life really is too short , time is our enemy , when you lose time with good friend or the ones you love , its lost time .We are all getting older everyday and all we have is our memories . I want to know that when I am an elderly woman or in my death bed , that I can look back in my scrapbooks , art journals , photos and say; as I take my last breath, I loved , I was loved ,I had wonderful friends,I had a beautiful family and I hope that what I leave behind' they will remember I loved them all .
Thanks for listening as always , it means alot !
Until next time I love ya a bunches muah! XOXO
