So a funny thing about this plaque … it is sort of, um, not quite right.
A few weeks ago, I read an amazing quote from The Organic Sister. But I read it incorrectly. I thought it said, “Create a home where love and acceptance drips from the walls and hangs from the ceiling.”
And it just STUCK. You know how that happens.
And I started imagining … I imagined that place. And I liked it a lot.
And then I thought about the word create in that sentence. And it felt so powerful. Somehow, I hadn’t thought about that word in that way before, that you can literally make a home that is such a safe and positive place to be, and that it doesn’t matter where you came from or how things were done or anything — You can start today, to create a home where love and acceptance is palpable.
Like right there. All the time.
And so I made this little plaque.
Except the thing is, I read the actual quote wrong. Tara (the Organic Sister), who is such an amazing inspiration, actually wrote, “Create a home where love and acceptance drips from the walls and clings to the skin.”
So, yeah … Sort of different. (Barely even close, that last part.)
But I think it worked out.
In this place of love and acceptance, I’m sure it did.
