Title: Take My Hand
We’ve all had bad relationships, some full of lies and betrayal. After dealing with such deception, it can be hard to fully trust someone again. The right person will be patient and make everything easy for you. When you love someone, realize the hurt parts need extra love, no ones heart is immune to being injured by someone else. .

The Box of Dreams 🎁
Once there were two sisters. The older girl had a special box full of dreams that she kept in a secret place inside their house.
▫️
At first she didn't show anyone at all, but soon she began to trust her younger sister to come open the box with her. Together they would sneak away to the secret place, pull out the box of dreams, and fill their eyes to the brim with the magic that was inside. They pointed out their favorite dreams to one another and would gaze into the box with full and wondering hearts until they were called for dinner, and the oldest would tuck away the special box until next time. As they grew, the younger one would begin placing her own dreams in the box as well, so there was even more magic for the two of them to gaze upon.
▫️
Years passed. The girls became young women, and the women became mothers.
▫️
One day the youngest sister was brushing her own daughter's hair in the evening. The daughter asked, "Mama, what are your dreams?"
▫️
"My dreams? Oh," she laughed, patting the soft strands of her child's hair, "they're just silly things tucked away. Your auntie and I had a box of them that she kept in a secret place in the old house."
▫️
"What kinds of dreams were in there?" the little one asked, and into her ear her mother whispered her favorite ones.
▫️
The girl looked puzzled. "But I never see you or Auntie doing any of those things, Mama."
▫️
"Doing?" The woman's nose crinkled in thought. "Well, I never thought about that. I didn't know dreams were made for doing. You see, all we ever did was look at them."
▫️
"Didn't Auntie ever tell you you could take them out and play with them?"
▫️
"No," she replied wistfully. "She didn't know either."
▫️
"And where are they now?"
▫️
"I suppose they're still in the box, in the secret place, in the old house."
▫️
And her daughter, the luminous and intertwining beams of hope and wisdom in her voice, said, "Well, the three of us will just have to go and get them back."
β€”
a dream about dreams. a story about trust. a note to self and whoever else needs it.

TGIF book lovers! How was everyone's week? I've been counting down the minutes to 5 o'clock since my first alarm at 6a.
.
The past few days have finally felt like Fall in Boston which has been such a relief from the crazy warm weather this year.
.
So I know I'm late to the party, but I'm excited to start #towerofdawn this weekend! My Sunday will consist of coffee, my bed and this book. 😊 Side note I dig this mug!
.
What's everyone reading this weekend?

When I moved to Jersey over 20 years ago I definitely learned some different words than I used in Iowa! One of those words was fuhgeddaboudit! I love this word, I don’t use it very often but when I do it is effective! This cool little font is called Konga Pro! #fuhgeddaboudit #wordoftheweek #FontFanatic #FontLover #IndigoInkBoutique
