Big and Little Mary

BIG MARY

LITTLE MARY

Everywhere I go I see Mary. Could be me. Might be me. Probably is me, but c'mon, don't you see her, too? Right there in the trees? Was walking with Kathleen last week, deep in conversation and all of a sudden there she was, in a tree we've passed a thousand times in our 11 years of morning walking. 

Went on a walk later in the week with Nancy and tried to show her the Mary tree. Couldn't find her. Swore she upped and moved. Found Big Mary while we were looking for Little Mary. Isn't that always the way it goes? While you're looking for something small, you find something big? Something you didn't even know you needed more than what it was you were looking for?

Me, too.

"Proud Mary keep on rollin..."

Mary is making sure you know she's got you covered.

"While you're looking for something small, you find something big? Something you didn't even know you needed more than what it was you were looking for?" Love this. It's exactly what I needed to see today.

Holy crap, Jess.

Seriously?

Carrie, I hope you're paying attention to the Marys. I think they want to have a sit-down with you.

So eerie! The positive intention class I'm taking right now has taught me a new exercise called "tree" and when I go in to that meditation, the top tree is the one I visualize. The exact tree in your top photo.

Love you!
