read between the lines


      

















  read between the lines

she’s young
filled with yearnings
inexperienced
eager

determined to achieve her goal

step by step  
nimble fingers
shape and cut the
fabric of dreams
glue and persistence
piece it all together

          delighted because it is what
she had hoped for from the
first scant idea

little girls know no boundaries
don’t always think of difficulties
that may prevent them realizing
their dreams

grown girls often lose their way
drowned out by the voice of reason
the caution of doubt
and fear of failure.
                    *


this is for and about my ten year old daughter...and myself. :)


love,
Eaton

    Wow, think I can identify here! This was terrific- thanks, and horses too- beautiful.
    Your header is gorgeous Eaton! Hey, I hope your doing well.
    I'm dealing with some health issues the Lord has simply chosen to keep me in the dark about. Humbling to say the least. Anyway, I'm haven't been responding much on my posts just cause the energy issue, but hey, I do make it a point to visit. Your in Sunday already and hope your having a peaceful weekend-
    Sending you a warm hug~
