I've been traveling a lot...all for good and great things, but it still takes its toll.
Luckily, I've noticed that it takes much more weight from life to throw me off-balance, as I try to find relief in the little things...mementos surrounding me, waiting for me to find peace and relief in what they hold.
This week it was in a quote from an in-flight film. It was some actor reciting lines that I felt embodied my baby...and helped shed light on the facts my heart already knew...the reasoning behind my love's service and sacrifice.
It's these things that help tip the scale a bit towards the center...helps me remember why my husband is the man he is and will immortally be...for I share his heart...the heart he so vulnerably and excitingly offered me to carry forever.
"All men fear death. It's a natural fear that consumes us all. We fear death because we feel that we haven't loved well enough or loved at all, which ultimately are one and the same. However, when you love a truly great woman, one that deserves the utmost respect in this world and one that makes you feel truly powerful, that fear of death completely disappears. Because when you are sharing your body and heart with a great woman the world fades away. You two are the only ones in the entire universe. You conquer what most lesser men have never conquered before, you have conquered a great woman's heart, the most vulnerable thing she can offer to another. Death no longer lingers in the mind. Fear no longer clouds your heart. Only passion for living, and for loving, become your sole reality. This is no easy task for it takes insurmountable courage. But remember this, for that moment when you are making love with a woman of true greatness you will feel immortal." -"Midnight In Paris"
