So, for Thanksgiving Jon gave me a necklace with the letters of my name on it. Only the place he got it from was backordered on a couple of letters. What I got was an I an A and an M. Sure it’s spells Mia, which my neices and nephew call me but…it also spells I AM. Wow, I thought, I like that. I’ve since gotten the rest of the letters to spell MARIA, but I haven’t put them on the chain. I like I AM too much.
I know these words have power, I suppose it’s in the affirmation of being, but I still don’t exactly get it. I just know how it makes me feel. A bit like a super hero, powerful in my existence and in who I am as an individual and in my connection to all beings.
So that’s how this pillow came about. I have to admit the colors in my photo aren’t completely accurate. (sorry) But it was the best I could do. The thread is purple as is the velvet surrounding it. (It looks like blue in the photo and the thread looks brown!)
“I Am, I am what I need, I offer what I have, rooted in eternity, the tortoise is my guide, loss brings hope and fields of gold, plant my feet in the earth, bring me home safely, ”
I Am is Sold.
And check out cheryl-by-the sea’s potholder poem on my comments from yesterdays post, it’s pretty clever.
