This image, simply, just grabs my heart!
Women, of different color and ethnicity, but really just women first.
With dreams and aspirations.
As women we are daughters, sisters, mothers, wives, friends . . .
We are nurtures by nature, but not very good at nurturing ourselves.
We need to nurture each other . . .
This image reminds me that we, I, need to be better at nurturing my friendships with other women.
It also reminds me of this verse in Proverbs 27:17, As iron sharpens iron, a friend sharpens a friend.
I always feel a certain mental acuity when I'm engaged in good conversation with a friend. I have a good friend that I have kept in touch with since we moved four years ago, and although we don't talk as often as we both would like, I always come away from our conversations with new insights. And I have had some great conversations with fellow bloggers, one in particular who always poses some really interesting questions at the end of her posts. I find that when I take the time to reciprocate to others ideas, I almost always find new clarity with my own.
Yes, this image for me is a powerful one that reminds me that no matter our age, our color, our cultures, that we are all beautiful women and that we should embrace our differences and nurture and support each other. Because I believe that even despite some of our differences, we all share similar desires, and that when we bring our ideas together we can help each other become sharper.
P.S. - I would like to encourage you to go through your images and find one that you have a heart connection with. It's not about technically correct, just simply one that speaks to you, and connect up over at The Kat Eye Studio.
