Writing by heart

I'm sure many blog readers, writers, creatives, book lovers out there would agree with me if I said, ' Isn't it lovely having something of your very own, to throw your thoughts down on and splash with every colour of your life . . .' 
I of course mean blogging! When I stumbled across this intricate, warm and accepting world of writing and creating I didn't really expect to have a go at joining in. I really wanted to. But part of me lacked courage and the other part, know - how!! 
One whole year (and a bit) in, and I'm doing it. I'm writing and keeping a blog that I've made and designed in an image that feels 'homey' and 'true to me' and it's real. It's out there. And it's such a special part of my life. 
There are many reasons it's become special to me . . . I've always loved writing and to discover this kind of outlet was a wonderful thing . . . but I think one of the main reasons it's struck such a chord with …

Tears, smiles and thoughts

Last week brought many things along amongst the beautiful arrival of summer time . . .  expected goodbyes and then unexpected farewells, peaceful thought provoking time coupled with poorlyness which would not allow enjoyment or relaxation, only pain and tears. Reflection and dreams taking shape and coming to life, doubts tangled with worry, muddled with uncertainty but then refreshed with belief and excitement. Planning, hopeful chats, sharing fears and then making it all better. 
A real mixture of a week . . .  yet I have surfaced from such a time with clarity, inspiration and above all a softly spoken peace which has eluded my grasp for a while now.
It might have been a week of bumpy rides, but at least I know I can sail the storms and as it stands now, I can see the lighthouse from my ship again . . .  I am not far away from the shore line . . . at last.

I hope your week has more ups than downs . . .

Forget me not . . .

Dear Blog,
I just wanted to let you know that I have not forgotten you. I'm still here, checking in and although your pages have remained empty a lot longer than usual just recently, I hope you know I am close by still and will begin writing again very soon . . . 
There is a lot to share, in meadow and milly life and a lot of undiscovered inspirations to blossom too.
But for now dear blog, thank you for waiting so patiently. I hope the photos will colour your pages so as not to leave you too bare for too long. 
Your devoted writer, Milly x 

Chapter 6 ~ Our dear June

Dear June,
You've arrived so quickly this year. I am not sure many of us have truly caught our breath just yet. My, how fast the days roll into each other. Yet, I know I am very glad to see you and I'm hopeful a batch of lovely things are in store for all of us.
If you could chase those over hanging clouds away and let some beautiful sunlight in, to warm our fearful faces and soften our nervous hearts in the midst of the anxious times we find ourselves in just now, then I know we would all be so grateful.
The sunshine does brighten our spirits. Everything is more radiant in the sunlight and together we will stick together, with a quiet strength, smiling on, even if inside we're shaking.
A sunny disposition does not mean forgetting or ignoring sadness or worry - rather it means to carry on positively, giving each day our best shot at making it a little more special and worthwhile than the last.

Lets open the gate to summer and let her in . . . .

With love
