Imaginary Friends

You know how you hear a song and you cry? You just can't help it. And you wonder who you know that can write songs like that, because surely it had to be written about you.

You know how you read something that just stops your heart for a moment? And you sit, entirely still. Then your heart resumes beating, but it's pounding. Trying to make up those lost beats.

You know how you see a picture and you gasp? And your stomach quivers a little because the photographer got it so exactly right. That if you were to try and define perfect, you could use this as an example.

Karey's like that. Often. So is Mary.

Meet the T.ruffle girls. They are my favorite dynamic duo. Even better than peanut butter and chocolate.

Have a sweet weekend, my friends.

Lovely! My imaginary friend is my guardian angel. I only see flickers of her in my peripheral view. Like the flutter of a birds wing.

Lovely... your pink and blue world. "Have you ever been mistaken for a weed..." made me laugh. Love your take on things.

If magic happened all the time, we'd come to think it common.

I like it better this way.

ELK said...

magical artists..i know what you mean about seeing a photo and it just stopping you..love that feeling.

Em said...

I'd love to quote the guardian angel phrase. Any idea who it should be attributed to? (Or just to T.Ruffle?) See? I'm confused.

karey m. said...

oh! Em...just popped back in to read all your words again. suck a sucker for compliments!

i wrote those words in response to mary's photo. so, i guess they belong to me. if you want to use them, just link back to www.trufflegirls.com. and thank you!

That last bit is a killer... 'mistaken for a weed'... we do that to others don't we? We think the worst, label them as something they are not, remove the sun from their lives because we can. And they (we, me, I) forget to bloom. Forget that there is a beauty within. Forget that I have worth.
Thank you for that Relyn!
Enjoy the day!
Erin

I really liked these quotes, Relyn, especially about the guardian angels and the flowers called weeds....My husband and I have had that altercation from time to time...What he calls weeds, I call flowers....

anyway, thanks for these thoughts, Relyn, really nice.....

bekkah said...

Thank you for sharing this. I shed tears over the beauty of Karey's post...

Jeanie said...

These are wonderful - I especially love the one about the horses and childhood memories, but I suspect not forgetting to bloom will stick with me forever!

Jaime said...

Oh my gosh oh my goodness...I followed your link to trufflegirls and was so absolutely delighted by these two creative beings!!!! I LOVE their blog. How I wish words could come to me like that..so simple yet so overbrimmingly full. And the images to match are sweet and darling and, well...they make me happy.
Thank you so much for sharing this little gem with us.

Oldies, but Goodies
