The Fusion of Vision



This morning my mind woke me early.  If it isn't the kids, it is the dog.  If it isn't the dog, then my mind is too busy.  As I opened my eyes and looked around my room,  I saw the wall decal that I applied before Chica was born.  The message resonated with me like never before. 


 "Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction."
This is the truth.  It has never meant more for me than it does today.  I feel extremely blessed, lucky, and fortunate to have a partner in life that see our path as one path,  and that this path is one that WE forge together.  We both see the fallen trees and debris in the way but we don't give up.  We don't turn back.  We keep on going. Together.

Not only do we keep going, we chose which way to make the path.  If the path isn't working or things are getting too treacherous for our self or maybe for our partner, we choose another way.  We work it out.  When all is said and done,  we are both just really trying to get to the same place.  We travel on this path together both doing our part.  Both lending a helping hand to the other.  We know we belong at the destination together.  We cherish the thought of it and it keeps us going even when our body or minds are feeling like we can't go on. 

Our vision of the future, our goals,  and destination where not something that just came to us all at once.  The path slowly whispered to us, gave us clues as which way to go,  and in the end we were both just quiet long enough to hear what was inside of us and know that we had the answers in us all along.  Our answers had a similar voice and common message.  This is what make us soul-mates.  It wasn't always easy seeing eye to eye,  and we still don't on everything, but I will say I truly feel that we are walking with the same intent these days and for that I am abundantly grateful!

Love, Peace, and Sandy Feet,
Mama Nic
