I could write pages and pages about the
magic that is Squam by the Sea but I don’t think I would ever be able to truly
capture it in words.
I was scared to go, afraid of the unknown, who/what I might encounter and their reactions to my story and journey with this little kidney-less babe of mine.
To say I was blown right out of my socks with all the Squam
love good juju vibes would be an understatement. I just want to cry happy tears writing this, thinking about how wonderful
my time at the beach was. It was truly part of my healing journey. There was no
sadness, no self pity, no dark cloud following me around. It was as if it
lifted for those 4 days and I was wrapped in light. I cannot describe it. I painted with the amazing Sarah Ahern and Alena Hennesey. I ate the most wonderful food and slept and sat on the beach
and connected with so many incredible souls. I came away recharged and ready
for what is to come.
Now are you ready for some goose bumps? I truly believe
there are times we are placed exactly where we need to be whether or not we
understand it. I shared my story with a circle of women and one in particular
burst into tears. She in turn shared that she would be donating a kidney to her
father very soon. Coincidence, I think not. There was some divine universal
power that placed the 2 of us in the same place that same day.
I will leave you with this. My finished painting from Alena's class. Can you feel all the healing power wrapped up in this piece? I know I can.
