JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 315 :: blissful braids

15 Nov

Today’s bliss…braids.

And tonight, as I reflect on the world, the weekend, my work week ahead, I am comforted by braids. The little hands that took turns brushing and braiding my hair, while we all watched football from the living room floor. And then I braided their hair, and then they braided mine again.

It is the circle of life, really.

I remember sitting at my Aunties feet while they braided my hair. In that world all was well. All was safe. All was comfort and joy. Anything could be combed out with the touch of a brush.

As an adult I realize we live in a world that has already seen too much conflict. And the snags are so much bigger than just one brush can detangle. But I am still humbled by love. The love of children, of family, of sitting on the floor braiding my little nieces hair. It is the circle of Love that we complete even if it is only with tiny hands and strands.

And that brings me to this bliss….
We owe it to the future to go forth with Love.
Because only Love wins.

More tomorrow.
