7 Words: How?

IMG_20180304_175832
My baby cousin, Caison. He’s much like a best friend of mine. For his arrival, his existence, I am so grateful.

How did God
know
I needed you?


Author’s Note: I found myself in and out of bouts of sadness, wondering when I was going to be happy again, wondering why I was so sad. My cousin gave birth to this incredibly handsome little one this past October and since his arrival, my heart has grown five sizes bigger. I am happier. I feel a sense of deeper connectivity to the Earth, to my loved ones, to God. Just when we think to give up on ourselves, on who we have become, reminders appear. We are only human. We fall, but we aren’t meant to stay down.
