He always soothes me
generously giving me
the best gift of all
being present in the now
securing my existence

    Your words are beautiful, Vashti. I offer you my gift to your day:

    With calmness present
    In all your activities
    Your Soul rewards you
    With a lifetime of success:
    A passage adorned with Peace..

    Vashti, wonderfully romantic and also highlights one of the key elements in a relationship:

    “the best gift of all
    being present in the now”

    So often we are distracted by our busy modern lives, being totally aware of another is truly a gift .. to both parties!

    Hope you had a brilliant weekend and a good week! 😀❤️

      Hi, Annika! You’re right. I also wanted to point out that we have to put our phones down sometimes, and truly see the people we love. Thank you for the wonderful comment, my friend. ❤ xo
