“Madly Deeply Love”
I love this phrase from India Hicks “Madly Deeply” as it describes perfectly all the madly and deeply places and spaces my life has taken me to, through each decade of my life. From the deepest darkest corners of a dark night of the soul, to the lifting of the heart through Grace, Gratitude and God! “Madly Deeply” can be everyone’s place and space in their lives, from the past to the present tense. It certainly has been mine. It exemplify’s everything great and grand in one’s life, as well as everything that one struggles with from time to time, and even throughout a lifetime.
Before I go on with my own story, I want to share with you what I think is absolutely gorgeous and fabulous about India Hicks. First of all, she is a very Modern Woman! India holds the reins of her own life, in her own hands and takes complete and total ownership of it all, from her family and lifestyle to her many creative expressions, including her fabulous new company “India Hicks: London – Harbour Island”. She gives it her all, in every way! Total commitment, exquisite Pizzazz, and undeniable talent…India has a gorgeous and attractive combination of vitality and glamour that touches the heart of every woman! Her authentic warmth, humor and style are evident in how she lives her life, and in every design and product she creates. From handbags and jewelry, to fragrance, gifts, scarfs and accessories, her signature style is in everything she does. India is a passionate force of Love, Beauty, Style and Humor! Take a peek here.
As for me and my “Madly Deeply” in this moment, today is the day I gave birth to my daughter. She would have been 46 today. But two years ago she passed through the veils of life into the ethereal ever after. I can’t possibly tell you about the pain and grief and sorrow. I can only tell you that she is my “Madly Deeply”. Her life still lives on, inside of me. I know she is in the hands of God, just as I know she is also here with me, somehow… someway, over the rainbow, beautifully and intricately woven inside every madly deeply corner of my soul. She breaths my breath and I breath hers. It is an eternal breath of life that lives on, past death, into eternity.
Her last gift to me was a gorgeous enamel frame with a ladybug, vines, and crystal flowers. She is and always will be my “Madly Deeply”. I have her photograph inside this frame with ‘Angel Gabriel’ in front of it at all times. Somehow I feel she is safe and protected here. And when I look at the video of India’s “Madly Deeply” with her beautiful daughter, Domino popping up out of nowhere, I am reminded that life is full of beauty and surprises. It makes me smile and feel happy and proud to be a part of India’s Team. I am Madly Deeply in Love with it all. Thank you India for all the reminders of how Precious Life is!!
