Hold your dreams close and protect them,
Like a watchful meadowlark over her nest.
Each egg - the whisper of a promise.
Each hope - a sweet song in your heart.
Meadowlark pendants are now in my Etsy shop.
Tell me one crazy hope or dream you have.
One that you laugh even thinking of it being possible.
I can feel mine, on the edge of a shell.
Delicate and teetering, but close enough to touch.
We want to move back home to Michigan.
We want to open a little art bead shop/jewelry/art gallery.
Plans are in motion, it's hard to be patient. It's hard to wait for the right time for things.
It's hard not to rush ahead and to count eggs before they hatch.
Talk to me today, share your dreams. Share the dreams that have come true and the dreams you have tucked away. I need to hear your stories.
