It Started with a Tattoo....

So, you may be wondering why my blog is called My Red Lotus Life.  Well, it all started with a tattoo, let me explain.  For years I had been talking about getting a really rockin' tattoo on my arm.  After hearing me talk about it forever my husband took action and made me an appointment.   At the time my husband was going thru a lot and some days it was hard to see how it was all going to work out.  We had also recently reconnected spiritually with a church.  So, I decided to go with a red lotus flower as the centerpiece in the tattoo to represent a sign of faith for my husband that we will get thru this and a sign of rebirth in regards to our new spiritual connection.

My husband emerged thru everything and together we are stronger in our relationship both as husband and wife, but also with our connection to God.  Now, with everything going on with me I also have faith that we will get thru this and I have comfort knowing I have the support of my family and friends.    In the years I have been with my husband we have gone through a lot of challenges and every time we have emerged stronger in our love for each other.  Therefore, the lotus flower is red to symbolize LOVE.   This blog is about my love for life.  Remember life is a gift, enjoy it every day!

1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.
