Are You My Mate?
Did anyone read that children's book "Are You My Mother?", by PD Eastman? It is the story about a hatchling bird. His mother, thinking her egg will stay in her nest where she left it, leaves her egg alone and flies off to find food. The baby chick hatches. He does not understand where his mother is so he goes to look for her. In his search, he asks a kitten, a hen, a dog, and a cow if they are his mother... I ask because I had a laugh today as I compared myself to the baby bird....
I'm coming off of two really really challenging days. My world was rocked with some crazy insane sadness as I hit another pocket of grief concerning my dads passing. It was debilitating sadness that made it hard to get out of bed, and had me waking in the middle of the night, hysterically crying. I did heaps of journaling (thanks Ana Forrest) and listened to some insightful spiritual encounters (thanks Mom) from our psychic, both of which brought me some peace. Mom had gone to the psychic one year ago, not that long after my Dad passed, and id gone this summer. We both recorded our sessions and damn am I thankful for that! After listening to them both, I felt a very clear message from my Dad which was "I am proud of you. I love you. We both did the best that we could when all of this was happening. And there is a man coming for you, and I'm so excited." In both my moms reading and my reading my Dad kept referencing this amazing love that is coming my way, THE amazing love of my life, the missing puzzle piece. Im laughing because now I'm like that baby bird. Every man that I meet (and there are many, many beautiful, inspired, exciting men in this little town!) I think to myself "Are you my mate?". Hahahaha. I actually was laughing out loud to myself this morning in the surf as I had this thought pop in 4 separate times. It's so exciting to know that love is ahead for me! And even more exciting that my Dad plays a part in it, and that he loves this person who will love me and I'll love in return!
I'm heading to bed now, getting my "beauty sleep", so I can be ready....are you my mate?
