Sorry for not blogging for awhile…preparing another book, creating a new agenda for Iona (I leave Friday), and general woman life issues have gotten in the way.
However, today on my beach walk I noticed as I was walking up the old weathered boardwalk that takes me through low lying dunes tufts of beach grass pushing through the cracks in the boards.
I smiled at their determination—to climb into being despite the barrier that had been laid on top of them.
I have always compared dune grass to women—it is hearty, strong, and it possesses determination (not to mention a root structure that goes on forever under the sand holding literally holding the beach in tact!). Sound familiar? Isn’t that what we women do with our families and communities, day after day?
Although tired because my walk was winding down I developed a kick in my step as I thought of all the women I have come to know who continue to push through issues, crises, relationships and like the dune grass, offer hope, not only to themselves but others with whom they come in contact. That would be you!
