The DailyOM on Valentine’s Day 2020:

It is important to choose our partnerships consciously. Sometimes forged quickly during times of need, we may find ourselves rushing into unions with perhaps not the clearest intentions. Partnerships created from those starting point might serve our immediate needs, but the repercussions of a union so quickly fostered without much thought can be difficult to recover from. Granted, there is something to learn from every relationship, but looking to another to fix or complete us can turn a partnership into a dependent bond. If we can stay clear about what we want and what we need in a partnership, while staying grounded and remembering that we are our own source of happiness and fulfillment, we can create partnerships that support and enhance the best of who we are.
Everyone in our lives is a mirror reflecting back the parts we love and dislike about ourselves. If we have the courage to recognize our reflections in each other, we can grow through our partnerships. A partnership that offers both acceptance of who we are and an opportunity for personal transformation can be fertile ground for growing a healthy, lasting union. When we find this kind of partnership, we are more likely to want to keep it, invest in it, and nurture it.
Life is a collaborative effort. Much of what we do can be enhanced through partnership. Together we are stronger because our personal power is multiplied by two. Through partnership we experience the joys of working, living, and loving together.

She,
In the dark,
Found light
Brighter than many ever see.
She,
Within herself,
Found loveliness,
Through the soul’s own mastery.
And now the world receives
From her dower:
The message of the strength
Of inner power.

AWEwoman.

I can see her as a child,

my cousin,

with her
long platinum brown hair falling
below her shoulders,
a quiet regal presence
and
a graceful ballerina demeanor.

Astonishing, to me.

X

X

I knew her

as a woman

who was luminous,

grace,

fierce

in her determination
to

endure,

transcend

and

prevail.

X

X

Her opened heart was

a July ruby bloom,

a maternal warm nest,
a safe hearth.

X

X

Connie,

my “cousin-sister”,

a Queen,

who invited,
welcomed
and

upheld truth-telling,

elegant dignity

and 

lived the deep sea courage

of

unfathomable loving,

boundless hope,
with

a heartfire

that shined kind tenderness,
remarkable resilience
and

radiant beauty.

X

X

My cousin’s

soul

spiraled, soared tonight

escaping her knotted coiled body
and,
in her last exhale,

a bright star

was created
in the vault
of
the
night sky.

Thank you, Connie.
You live forever in my heart beat.
