Be Still…

I wish you nothing but love and joy today, as you celebrate the amazing women in your life!  May they teach you, build you up and fill your heart with love!    Find gratitude in the thought that they have guided you, loved you and many times, put your own happiness and well-being ahead of their own.  These women have given you a seed of love that will bloom for all eternity.  Tend to that love, allowing it to flourish for a lifetime…

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…
