stars + shelves

By Rachel Awes on November 5, 2012

as i got a lil’ fear + temble-ee
about pursuing the moving forward 
with putting my book into
our beautiful world, this sentence dropped in
+ i made this drawing…really, for all of us.
(click on pic to see larger)
i’ve been having fun envisioning 
+ beginning to put together what i’ll set 
all these books on!
stay tuned, dear ones.

    this week is going to be filled with many emotions and i am working hard to not allow my fears to rule the week. a pow of blessings hit me when i read this. sometimes as a mom it is so hard not to rule with your fears of “what might happen” rather then the courageous and postive thoughts of “WHAT POSSIBLITIES” his new journey could be filled with.

    thankful for your simple guidance. kindness. and happiness you share.

  4. Those are words to remember…such a sweet message. Thank you.
