Way back near the beginning of the summer there was the writing prompt of shalom from the #wholemama link up. This took me on a wonderful rabbit trail of finding out the various meanings of the word.
Contentment, completeness, wholeness, well being and harmony. Peace.
I have fallen in love with that word. I whisper it to myself in times when I am nervous or anxious. I pray it over nearly everybody I meet. It it my prayer for the world.
It means so much to me that I had it tattooed to my arm on Friday. I took my friend Miranda along and we made a little documentary style video for you all. The lighting is a bit dark, but I hope you enjoy coming along with me and experiencing the tattoo process.
