I find that there are usually at least two sides to every story... So my dress has two sides and my story comes in the words that follow...

Bring a light
to the darkness of night that veils
the tears, the loss, the fear…

Bring a light to the seven silver sisters
watching from the night sky
so they might point the way for us all to start again...

Bring a light

to the sacred hearts...

even when life seems lost and broken...

so that the tears shed might transform...
becoming seeds of hope scattered to the wind...
taking root in the fertile soil of the soul...

Bring the light of day to hearts made whole...
where women may grow and flourish
like the flowers of a garden

their beauty a radiant sun...

Bring a light, a voice,

and the song of our hearts...

It's because of Stephanie from the Mango Studio and Rodrigvitz Style that I first heard about the women of Juarez, Mexico... Thank you Stephanie for BEing one of those links so that we don't forget what matters to the heart...

And I am forever grateful to Monica of a Girl Gone Thread Wild for inviting us to bring our heARTs together and give voice to these women who have touched us so... Every woman deserves a beautiful dress and the birth right to walk and dance in the world, free of fear, harm, and with respect and dignity...
