I’m sitting here waiting for my girls to get their nails done after school and work and I can’t wait to get home. The only thing is I’m not done with all of my motherly duties. I never thought that I would ever sew again but to my surprise it’s reality. But this art of sewing started when I was young.
I’ve always loved fashion and design since I was like 7 or 8 years old. I would cut out pictures of runway models, designer apparels and the latest fashion trend to put in my fashion scrap book. I would collect new pics every week consistently.
I loved everything about fashion, I knew I wanted to be a designer or even a model!!!!! My mother taught me to sew from patterns and simple mending things! As I grew older I wanted to design and learn how to model. All of this was going on at the same time I was in school band learning to play the saxophone. I was a busy bee!!!! I kept my dream alive with the help of my parents. My mother enrolled me in modeling school when I was 14 and I learned how to model, apply makeup and the skills of becoming a model, commercial and acting. This was the best experience of my life! My mother truly sacrificed for me! I carried my knowledge with me everywhere and applied it to everything. In college I majored in music and fashion merchandising!! I was so excited!! However, music began to become extremely challenging so I switched my major to fashion and minored in music. By the way, I picked music back up years later and earned my degree in it. So in college I literally was sewing and making my clothes almost daily !! I would walk to “Piggly Wiggly” and find fabrics to make things. I had fabric that I bought at home as well.
Moving forward I haven’t sewn or designed since 1993!!! I’ve wondered would I ever sew again and if I did then how ? How would I have time ? Do I still have it? Would it come out right ?
Well, the answer is YES!!!!!!! I’m sewing my daughter’s dress for her dance that’s in 2 days!!!!
So far so good!! It’s kinda exciting because it’s like déjà vu totally!!! I remember when my mother taught me! My two daughters are both learning to sew at the same time !! What a life!!!
Thinking about the idea of just falling in love again, subconsciously places great endless excitement on my mind.
Losing sleep night after night has become an epidemic in a good way; with several possibilities surrounded by those unknown (what-if) questions in my head, chasing constantly, bound by nervous feelings, as time dissipates swiftly.
Chances to embrace endless moments of true love once again in this life time, makes it worth trusting him daily and knowing that he would always keep his promises.
Finally, I can give my carefree love to you, with an open mind, after escaping the bitter boundaries of fears, surviving those fake dating proposals and listening to lucifer long lectures from his followers lying tongues.
I have surrendered only to you, your clean spirit, your armor, your compassion, your zeal, your trust in me that sparked zealous, ushered gracefully by heaven delights.
Soon we would vanish into repeated joy, our hearts pounding, with every beat ticking out of control, holding countless traces of passion, perturbing underneath the warm surfaces of running water, clothed in seamless fabrics, body watching quickly dominates our deepest thoughts, minute-by-minute pursuing unstoppable ‘love jones ‘ syndromes trapped inside temporary we hope.
Trying to anticipate the moment of truth, when I could see you again, smell your hair, hear your soft spoken voice, look into your beautiful eyes, the opportunity to smile, laugh, talk, touch your heart and share tomorrow blessings only with you.
Surely! You Want This Kind Of Love Too.
Live is too short! Recently, very special colleagues, friends and loved ones have been going through some very tough times with elderly parents, illnesses and even death. My heart is so heavy because this is so difficult. My heart goes out to you my friend if you’re going through very difficult situations. I pray for peace, healing, restoration of faith, forgiveness and the mending of broken hearts! Lets’ embrace each other more, appreciate each other more, forgive and have more compassion, but most importantly, unconditional love for one another! Life is simply too short! Live2Love…..
