.i am a teepee.

i am a teepee.

comforting like the canvas, providing you with love and warmth.
strong like the poles, always giving you a place of strength and support.
i am a place of laughter. a place to play. a place of fun and games.
a place to be loud and my echo will join you in singing songs till our hearts content.
but i am also a place of solitude, allowing you a little quiet and peace when needed, but never letting you feel alone.
i am a place of imagination and discovery. here to assist you in your many adventures.
and a place to learn, reading books and talking about the day.
my walls will protect you from the inevitable rain, as i know it will eventually pour, and i am here to keep you dry.
i will also show you the sunshine peeking through the top after those rainy days.
i am a place to sleep. usually on and will always have a nice place for you to rest your tired head.
i am a place of softness, my blankets and cushions keeping you cozy in case of a fall.
and i am place to hide if you are feeling scared, and i will be your support to confront those fears when ready.
i am tall, so if you ever get lost i can help you find your way home.

my structure simple, but my entirety all yours. i will never fail you in always being their in love, support, strength or reassurance. i am your teepee, as i always will be.

happy mothers day to the other teepees out there, with their own walls of love. and especially to the strongest teepees of all, my own mother and mother-in-law. love you.
