Keep You Safe

IMG_6069.JPG

We've had a lot of wet, rainy days this spring in Utah. It's given me a lot of time to ponder the idea of shelter. I've been so grateful for the physical shelter and safe spaces I've found--umbrellas, pavilions, indoors--to provide haven during the storms (even the smelly reptile house during a rainy first grade zoo field trip). But it's made me think a lot about the way we create those emotional safe shelters for the people around us. Sometimes I'm the one giving it, but often I'm the grateful recipient of someone else holding an emotional umbrella out to me and letting me feel protected and dry for a minute while we wait for the clouds to pass. To the loving souls who continually offer me this kind of respite and safety, thank you ❤️❤️ [“Keep You Safe” 16x16, available]
