I decided, at last minute, to jump and sign up for Hannah Marcotti’s online class called Community Grace. See, I have been following Hannah and her work for a while and she whispers to my Soul and amazes me at several levels. I even told her I wanted to be her BFF ahah *oh yes I did say that*. A Sister told me praises about it and that she was already signed up. A familiar faces. An unexpected «I love her too» and that was it.
In the prompt #3, Hannah invited us to gather words said to us in our already existing community. By our friends, our lovers, our family… whoever. And to focus on them. To let them sink in. Their meaning. Their beauty.
I wanted to share some of them with you today.
She said, we’re in this together.
He said, you are stronger than you think.
They said, Aho.
He said, thank you for being a wonderful friend.
She said, I see you.
She said, you are not a monster.
She said, you need a break; come here, my door is wide open.
She said, and baby girl you shine.
She said, I love your hair.
She said, you’re beautiful.
She said, you are one special Sister.
She said, you are the best mama a girl can have.
She said, yes of course you love them.
She said, there are no coincidence.
She said, we’re Old Souls.
She said, prepare to Rock & Shine !
She said, i thought i would just tell you how much your color shines my days up and our lands.
She said, You are awesome. You are interesting. You are smart. You are beautiful! oh yeah, and you are magic !
