~~~ This post is in honor of my daughter who just celebrated her birthday on Memorial Day yesterday! 🎂🇺🇸🎁
I have the Warrior’s logo tattooed on my right forearm where I can see it everyday. When I would read and see all these people getting inked as a tribute or memorial to him, it got me thinking. So much was coming up soon like Easter and my daughter’s 1st Communion but still the feeling remained. Hard to believe 3 years has passed already!
I had 2 concerns about doing this and they were quite valid for me. First, I didn’t want it to be a reminder just because he passed and second, the aftermath of explaining its meaning to those who won’t understand.
Once I finally made the decision, my appointment was on my daughter’s 8th birthday. I wanted to go when they were in school and surprise everyone. This was the only opportunity I had left before school let out for the summer.
All went well and when I looked at it, I felt so powerful and determined to conquer anything~~ kinda wished it was bigger! When the kids arrived home, I knew I had to be discreet and avoid it being seen. Nobody would want their thunder stolen on their birthday and I couldn’t do that to her.
Despite my anxiety, my girl noticed even though I tried to hide it. She got me laughing which is what I needed to do. She promised to keep my secret for now and she did. The guys never noticed until a few days later!
This girl is also a Gemini like Warrior and her traits are so similar, it blows my mind. When I did look up some info on birth signs, I got goosebumps. I don’t follow astrology but her description is almost parallel to attributes of Warrior and how he did things.
She loves my tattoos ( I have 3!) and even though I hated having this done on her special day, she gave me the gift of laughter and acceptance. That made it all seem worthwhile. 😊💪🏻Those Geminis which means “twin” have a connection. Maybe I was meant to get my Warrior tattoo on her birthday. What a special reminder that I will never forget with the extra memories it brought me.
~~~ I still haven’t explained the real significance of it to most. I tell people it means believe in yourself and to be strong. I have been told it is cool so that warms my heart. 💖
