It was sent to me by someone I know not well, but well enough to appreciate that she is a gifted, beautiful and intelligent woman who is a devoted mother and wife. Her words continue to resonate with me and I am often caught thinking about her, her family and what she went through to bring her own little boy into this world.
I wrote the post, According to African Legend because a dear friend had suffered a further miscarriage and I hoped, if she read it, it would provide her with a small window of courage and hope. Little did I know it would also strike a chord with another friend too. I remain humbled that she wrote to me and thrilled that she did.
Sometimes it feels like I'm writing into the void, the internet can be a strange place, but when the void catches and hooks certain words and stories and places them into the hearts of others....well it's a magic (you coined it Stacey Conner in the comments section of Three Is The Magic Number) that shouldn't be stopped.
