A day of highs and lows. It started with a lovely soul sister coming over and having tea with me. We talk about how much our lives have changed in the last 12 months. We have both walked in different directions. We have taken new paths. Some that have lead us closer to our souls purpose. Some that have been scary. A year ago my friend had just reached base camp on Everest where her lovely fiancé proposed only a few hours later to be taken down the mountain in a helicopter to a hospital quite ill. After she returned to Australia all better we were all relieved. Then she left my work a matter of months later to pursue her dream of working as a landscape designer. I am so proud as she carves out the life of her dreams.
I had lunch with two other soul sisters and we had some deep conversations about how we feel about life. Where we are heading and what is really feeding us. What is lighting us up and how much we have achieved without even realizing it. We celebrate each other’s years and enjoyed each other’s company. I then had dinner with my littlest sister. We went to a lovely little Italian restaurant in my neighborhood. Vegan pizza and pasta for dinner. We had a cry together which was nice. She got to tell me how she felt during Hamish’s birth and the weeks after. It is inspiring to see how much he has changed our family dynamic. We have always been close but this has brought us even closer. The love I feel for my sisters is infinite and I am so grateful for their support.
After dinner Greg arrives home from the movies. A few nights ago he pulled an angel card. It read ‘make sure you tell your loved ones how you feel before it may be too late’. I knew straight away we should call Greg’s Grandpa Joe. We tried to call straight away and got no answer. Then we got the message tonight he isn’t going very well. We got to tell him we love him tonight over the phone. He kept asking ‘Is Jodie ok? I think of her all the time. Is she ok? We keep saying ‘yes’. We love you. We love you Joe. It’s heartbreaking to know he might not have long left. I know his Grandad was the strongest father figure he had in his life. Someone who he has always looked upto. Someone who has been there through it all.
Hamish thank you for allowing us to connect with the ones we love on a deeper level.
