familiarity 1



This month marks my 8th wedding anniversary and I know this is the stage that familiarity can easily settle in.

So with intention and purpose I have been taking the time to look familiarity in the face and to begin to look again seeking out what I fell in love with many years ago.

Naturally my inclination is to pull away when I feel confused or unsettled, to find my perspective again. But lately I have been learning to just hold out my hand and ask for help.

It’s amazing how something so simple can be so profound. Reaching out to hold hands and walk alongside.

In a world that reaches for our phones quicker than we do someone else’s hands, what if our goal today was to just hold someones hands saying its okay I am here.

The hands of our children

The hands of the elderly

The hands of our partners

The hands of those reaching out.

When we hold hands it is a place of companionship that builds trust.
