#2. I Want To Create a Family that Is...
...fearless in love and life. FULL, no...overflowing with joy and laughter, hope and peace, love and communication.
A family outside of the box.
A home with doors flung WIDE OPEN like a big warm hug on a chilly day.
Hearts grounded in gratefulness and sharp with awareness.
Eyes that see the others around us- unafraid of eye contact and BOLD smiles between strangers.
A family without rugs. No rugs to sweep things under. (Completely RUG-LESS! ...RUG-FREE! ...DOWN WITH RUGS! ... Etc.)
A family that navigates without a detailed map and a well-thought-out plan.
Messy, but ALIVE.
Uncharted, but always GUIDED.
For better or worse.
lather. rinse. repeat.
