NOVEMBER 20, 2020: “Ink” …

… whereas some moms might see a “tragedy in ink waiting to happen down the road” indigo-ed temporarily onto her teenage daughter’s hand (because, “OMG, how MACABRE!”), I instead see the limitless potential and possibilities for the extremely talented young Phoenix I’m raising who knows exactly who she is, has a pretty good “HANDle” on what she wants and where she wants to go, and isn’t afraid to express herself, be herself, and see things in herself that while on the surface may look kinda dark, are in reality, extraordinarily beautiful! Some times I have to literally pinch myself because I can NOT believe I made her. I’ve made TWO extraordinary human beings.

I’ve said it before,

and I’ll say it again,

No one will ever truly understand either the depth of each of their hearts’ bounds or the mountains of ashes they’ve both had to ascend from to teach themselves how to fly. I am such a lucky mom, and I just can’t say it enough! But this girl of mine? She’s one you’ll need to watch out for …

… like, as in …

STAY OUT OF HER FLIGHT PATH IF YOU’RE AFRAID TO HAVE YOUR EYES BURNED OUT BY HER LIGHT! Her Light makes my Light look like the 5-watt bulb from a nightlamp by the way … even when it appears that she’s “going dark”. I’d be doing myself a grave disservice if I didn’t say that some day when I’m grown up I hope to be just like her! I’m so proud to be their mom! BOTH my kids are my heroes! With all that being said, and so far as the “ink” of it is concerned, all I have left is this

“I’ve loved them all … so much that it hurts” … so I have them all inked to keep them insideevery day for the rest of my life.

INK

Got a tattoo that said “together through life”. Carved in your name with my pocket knife. And you wonder when you wake up, will it be alright? Oh oh. Oh oh. Feels like there’s something broken inside. All I know, all I know – is that I’m lost whenever you go. All I know is that I love you so. So much that it hurts. Got a tattoo and the paint’s alright. Just want a way of keeping you inside. Oh oh. Oh oh. All I know, all I know … is that I’m lost in your fire below. All I know is that I love you so. So much that it hurts. I see the road that you climb. I see the scars begin to show. I see your colors and I’m dying of thirst. All I know is that I love you so, so much that it hurts. {Coldplay}
