More then just a bracelet and a doodle

Currently right now I have on a yarn bracelet on one wrist and a henna drawing on my other hand. To any passing person they mean absolutely nothing. They may look at the henna and think it is pretty. It is highly unlikely I will pass by a person who knows what the yarn is for. I wont even go into detail as to why I have them, but I will tell you why they mean even more to me then what their intended symbolism holds.

To me they mean I belong somewhere. That there is a group of amazing powerful women who we share a connection. There is one women who has brought us together. Right now we stand in solidarity for her. This woman is an inspiration in my life. I don't know if she even knew how much she meant to me up until a few weeks ago when I told her. I felt silly, telling her this, but I felt it needed to be said.

Knowing that I do belong in a circle of women who are strong and amazing, is such a wonderful feeling. Women who lift other women up and inspire them to be the best they can be. Women who want other women to know that they have a choice and they have rights. Women you believe that you are infact a wonderful amazing being who is designed to do wonderful and amazing things. Women who believe in other women. It has been a wonderful and amazing time. Something I hope continues to grow.

Right now to some I have a piece of yarn and a doodle, to me I have a community and amazing women who I can call my friends.

Facebook has been wonderful for connecting me with some of these people before but to actually meet them in person has been an honor. 


  1. Love these words... great to meet you last night!

  2. It's so nice to walk into a space and feel like you are home. . . no concerns about looking good or being misunderstood. Humans are social beings and we need our tribe. I'm glad you're part of mine, Ally. Love Gloria
