I’m finding it difficult to write these days. This month of June is a heavy one for me, because it is the month that would have been my daughter Mia’s due date, on the 22nd. My sadness disguises itself as many different things, and my grief twists its way around everything I touch. I sit down every morning to write to you, but no words come.
So instead, please join me as I revisit memories of a warm, cloudy afternoon in May.
Three sisters and our dog, playing by the small trickling stream, stepping on slippery rocks, wetting our feet in the cold water.
Holding hands and running through the hills made of long, long grass.
And walking bravely at the edge of it all – where the blue mountains meet the sky.
“Nature is a woman’s best friend. If you are having troubles, just swim in the water, stretch out in a field, or look up at the stars. That’s how a woman cures her fears.”
We are daughters of the woods.
We are daughters of the earth.
just beautiful, may love surround you during these difficult days xxx
A big warm hug from me to you <3
Beautiful, Malavika. & I am so sorry for your pain at the loss of your daughter, this month and all the months. Thinking of you at this hard time.
Thank you so very much, Laura. Thank you for holding space for me as I walk this path.
Sending you feelings of comfort, peace, and safety from my gentle heart.
Thank you, Lee. That means a lot to me.
Be strong – no words will soften the complete feeling but our support will help strengthen you day by day
<3 And that is more than I could ask for. Hugs to you.
I like your blog Malavika. I love the pictures out in nature and I’m sorry you’re baby died. Spirit is God. I don’t follow any particular organized religion but there is something about the name of Jesus. I had a spiritual awakening after spending my 20s sleepless in NJ and now in my 30s I know God is always with me. Good luck! I hope you start writing again and keep your blog. The nature, the spirituality focus that focuses on God and Nature are appealing and very nice. I love those photos!
Thank you for taking the time to write to me. And thank you for sharing a little bit of your story with me. I’m glad you enjoyed this post.
