Family of Love

i am thankful to have two families –
one who gives me Love,
the other who gave me life

i recognize them by their faces when they greet me –
Love’s reflection shines in the eyes and smiles of one as they warmly initiate or return my hug beckoning me closer,
pain’s darkness meets me in the faces of the others repelling us like magnets of the same pole as we each stay on our safer side of fear’s fence

i carry the energy of each inside me –
the boundless Love that shines brighter each day and sweeps me toward my passions, self-care, and allows me to complete my mission as a dispenser of unconditional Love,
the dark dusty corners of my youth when i forget who I am or take an unintentional wrong turn and lose my way from Light

sometimes I am confused temporarily –
wolves disguised as sheep seek the warmth of my heart and my Love welcomes the sheep closer until the wolf’s rank odor penetrates my awareness and I awaken to the darkness lurking beneath the sheep’s false shell,
sometimes my own darkness recognizes its reflection too quickly in another and my fear of being swallowed in the black hole of pain causes me to run without seeing the greater Love that lives in that sould too

i am grateful for each –
those who give Love allow me to see the darkness of broken places and bring Light and gently healing to them,
those who bring darkness help me see where i’ve been and invite me to find my own Light and stand in it bravely and firmly

thank you for these opportunities

i love you all
