As The season Pass…
I have let go more and more
I have sought my own acceptance
and Found it wholeheartedly .
I don’t Deny myself anything anymore
and have found my own definition of “Family “.
We are given a family when we are born
They are in our lives for a reason.
Some bonds stay and forever grow strong.
Some bonds lessen with time.
Some bonds just are There, stagnant perhaps but There nonetheless .
I learned from my Only Grandmother
Whom passed 5 years ago
That a Family needs to be involved in each others lives
That We Can Grow through Nurturing one another
And Being there.
My Grandmother was a very spiritual woman.
A force to be reckoned with: a force of nature
A very determined woman
A woman that believed in Me
from the get-go.
I still Hold her close in my heart
She is one of My Guardian Angels .
She continues to stay with me
So I know she is an Angel
She was a well know fashion coordinator in Montreal
And Infused My Life with love of Style and Substance
at a very early age.
Inspiring my art
My definition of Family
People that are THERE
People that reach out
They may not be in Your biology
But They are always there .
All You Have to do is Touch Your heart
To Know They are There .
I always write songs for my family
Music is a Gift i Love to Give.
If i look at my songs on Youtube
They are mainly for my family
and Not all Blood related .
This one was written for my Father
As He and my mother cultured me
Showed me The world and raised me to the best of their abilities.
We may not be as close as we were when i was a child
But I still Hold Them close .
And think of them with Joy
Sometimes with a little tear
But Mostly With Gratitude
For Giving me what They thought was best
I was a tough one to raise .
Rebellious and Very Opinionated
That Part of me never changed .
Needing more attention than my sister and brother: because of my low vision.
Trying To step into their shoes – well that feeling hurts.
This is the thing when You grow up
You Can empathize with clarity
And see it from the a different perspective .
A “Not Only Me ” Perspective .
A “We” perspective – if you like .
.. Yes Yes Yes They did the Very best They could… and Did so Unconditionally .
And i Love them for Loving me and for being Whom They are …
So To Families everywhere
Hold each other Close
And Cherish – Love One another .
Just Touch Your heart
and You may just feel whom lives in Your heart .
Your Family .
