Each one of us is unique. We all have our foibles. Some things we’re good at. Others not so much. And some we’re still learning about.
This video of Tiny Tim delightfully reminded me just how important it is to have someone in our corner, pushing us at those times when we have run out of oomph. Someone to give us that extra shove and a fighting chance. I must admit I got ‘lost’ for a while in following this little one around.
As I was away road tripping last month, the monthly Soul Gifting got missed. So it’s a double this time. The two ladies featured this month have endearing qualities that remind me of Tiny Tim. Really!
Lady Calen of Impromptu Promptlings is a fighter. She is resilient, courageous and loves to go spelunking in the inner cave of her psyche. In her words –
I’m a seeker, firstly, plain and simple. And I have the personality of a dragonfly! I flit from one thing to another — up, down, side-to-side, backward, forward, even in a diagonal pattern from time to time. Ya just never know what you’re going to get with me. But if you’re not afraid to go along for the ride, then you’re my kind of reader.
Jane Basil of Making it Write is a fighter of a different kind. She’s done it tough. And she writes it out. Words spill in vivid cascades of verbiage – all the turmoils, twists and turns that life has put in her path. Along with a wonderfully wicked sense of humour. In her words –
the writing remains,
my first passion, a myriad of faithful words that float with love unending,
requesting no return, begging only
to be poetry.
It is these that saved me,
finding me, offering unfailing constancy,
giving breath where air was thin,
and finally delivering me
you who read me.
