Robyn’s Poetry Shirt

Art Gowns

Were you ever inspired to send your Fairy God Sister something very, very special?

If you have then I know your Fairy God Sister went to the hospital for a surgery that could change her life. Here is a message from Robyn.

With all my heart, I thank you in advance for sending prayers out  … My big day is Thursday at the NY Hospital for Special Surgery. I will be having a difficult and complex Total Hip Replacement for Congenital Hip Dysplasia by Dr. Edwin Su. I was told to expect a lengthy recovery process… but HOPEFULLY this will be the start of something VERY GOOD!  

Love and Blessings Always! 

So, I sent, Robyn, my FGS, one of the Gautier “Corsets Charming” all wrapped up securely in a “Poetry Shirt”.

This “Poetry Shirt” is an idea we came up with as our creativity kept spilling…

    Dear Resa and Robyn – you have no idea how much I’ve been thinking of you, Robyn! Sending positive energies and many prayers for successful surgery and a complete and smooth recovery. The Poetry Shirt is gorgeous! What a beautiful idea and lovely sharing … and wonderful to see our lovely Robyn modelling it. I love this so much. Sending much love and gentle hugs; I can’t wait until you’re back with your family and friends. ~ Love, Julie xoxox

    January 6, 2014 at 10:06 PM

    • Julie – First HUGE HUG! Thank you for all the positive wishes and prayers for me — they were felt – and, no doubt, helped me through this first step. I agree, Resa is incredible and this shirt and pendant means the world to me. Of course I modeled it when received with the intention of showing ONLY Resa ~ but could not deny her when she asked if she could create this post. I am truly blessed. Home now – and in substantial pain given that I am intolerant to any pain medication… but I believe I’m on a good path to healing and recovery~ Much Love to you dear friend. I hope all is well in your world ~ Robyn

      January 15, 2014 at 11:26 AM

      • Robyn, dear friend, I’m so glad that you’re finally home; and continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers daily, wishing for complete recovery and reduced pain for you. I have had to give up my blog – it was just too much for me to continue with it. If you are on facebook at all, you can find me at: https://www.facebook.com/JulieCatherineEdwards to keep in touch. Sending you many gentle hugs and much love! ~ Julie xoxox

  8. Hi Robyn, I am saying many prayers for you, my friend, for a smooth surgery and recovery. You have been missed, but we will be here when you’re ready to return. I just commented on Resa’s blog and your poetry shirt is simply gorgeous and her gesture is just as beautiful, along with your poem and you are the perfect model, too. Take care of yourself and sending much love and many hugs and blessings your way. Lauren ♥

    January 6, 2014 at 10:36 PM

    • Hi dearest Lauren! Thank you sooooo much for your thoughtful wishes and prayers. I miss you too! Hopefully one day soon I will be able to get back to this world I love so much!! So glad you liked Resa’s magical creations. She is an angel ~ and I am so lucky to have encountered her and all of you here. Has meant the world to me during these challenging years. Hugs and Love, Robyn

    • Aww, thank you dear Al! I am very touched and so appreciate all your good wishes for me. I will go slow and easy in this recovery process… Very excited and hopeful! Blessings and Love, Robyn

  10. Wishing you a successful surgery an speedy recovery, Robyn. Your blog posts have been sorely missed and are an inspiration to us all.

    January 7, 2014 at 5:26 AM

    • Dearest Darren ~ Thank you so very much from my deepest heart. I am overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support I have been blessed with here. I miss this wonderful world very much. I hope you are well, and send hugs, gratitude and love your way~ x Robyn

      January 15, 2014 at 11:30 AM

  11. hi Robyn, it looks like Resa has designed you a poetry shirt that may indeed contain superpower materials …. please utilize these materials to the best of your abilities, there is a dragon waiting for you to slay …. slay it please with all your strength, love and wisdom …. my thoughts and prayers are with you as they have always been, overcome any obstacles with bravery and courage …. show them who they are reckoning with, the mighty Robyn …. your friend always, Jim

    January 7, 2014 at 5:59 AM

    • Yes Jim~~ Resa has created magic here for me! I was so surprised and enthralled. We spoke about the poetry shirt concept and worked on it for some time a while ago, and then, right prior to my big surgery – it appeared at my doorstep (along with a fabulous charm pendant that came with me to the hospital). All went very well surgically – no complications and I am progressing slow and steady now home for the 2nd day. I am so very grateful and blessed to know you … Huge Hugs to you and eternally grateful for your friendship! x Robyn

      January 15, 2014 at 11:34 AM

    • Hi there dear Jim! It is so nice to “see” you !! I love your interpretation of Resa’s poetry shirt as a vehicle for “superpowers” ~ YES! I am calling in those powers all I can… and hope to slay that dragon at last!! You are a gem. Thank you for your prayer and healing wishes for me… I am beyond touched by your generous soul! With Love and Gratitude Always, Robyn

      January 19, 2014 at 1:11 PM

      • hi Robyn, i hope you are getting stronger every day as you slay that dragon …. strength and perseverance along with the magic of healing can hopefully bring you out on the dance floor again with family and friends that continue to grow and blossom …. with love and best wishes for you as always, your friend Jim

  12. Vicki (from Victoria A Photography)

    Sending lots of healing energy your way dear Robyn – I’ve missed your posts very much, but my sixth sense told me surgery was on the agenda and that you would reappear much refreshed and walking tall one day.
    Sending Lots of Love and my very best wishes for a speedy recovery, but can well appreciate that it may be some time before you’re ‘back on deck’. Take care and don’t try and hurry the recovery any more than it should be.
    Patience is the key that will unlock the door to the Future.

    January 7, 2014 at 6:21 AM

    • Thank you so much Vicki! Have thought of you often and hope you are doing well. I’ve missed your posts as well, and am so happy this next phase of my journey is behind me so I can, hopefully, move on to recovery and a fuller life! Yes, I have been told it will be a process and a lengthy recovery given the complexity of my case, but I am remaining optimistic! I will take it one step at a time … patience is a virtue, I agree. Sending Love and Hugs ~ xo Robyn

      January 16, 2014 at 12:10 AM

  13. good luck and get well soon ! 🙂

  14. Robyn, know that there are places words can’t fit into – and that’s the place of prayers. Mine are with you, breathing as you breath – hope for a brighter sun just beyond Thursday. I love you, and I’ll be waiting patiently for your return.

    January 7, 2014 at 2:09 PM

    • Oh dear Bobbie – thank you- no words are ever essential in our exchanges – you know that!! 😉 Thank you dear friend for your prayers and shared breath … I do treasure our connection. All my Love – Robyn

      January 19, 2014 at 1:13 PM

      • I am glad to see you here, even if it is but for a moment………. I hope all is going well. You are missed for surely you are loved!

        January 20, 2014 at 10:59 AM

  15. My thoughts are with you Robyn for Thursday and beyond….I hope for a speedy recovery as well. Biggest hugs and some very vigorous waving. Miss you loads my friend. xx

    January 7, 2014 at 8:28 PM

    • Miss you to Ste J ~ 🙂 And thank you for all your love and good wishes for my recovery. I can see you “vigorously” waving away over there – across the pond ! Love and hugs ~ Robyn x

      January 19, 2014 at 1:15 PM

      • I started waving from the US, so I think it should count double that I straddled two continents to wave to you (and something about my visa only allowing me three months blah, blah, blah). You just take it easy and let me know if there is any way I can aid you in your recovery…I don’t belly dance though, just in case you were hoping. xx

    The Joy Of A Thought

    I love to let my
    Inner thoughts
    Become so full
    Of You

    I love to feel
    The happiness
    Which fills my
    Heart when I do

    I love to feel the
    Tender bliss, that
    Never seems to go

    I love to feel that
    Sweet loving joy
    That a thought of
    You adds to my day.


    I write a lot of spiritual
    poems for God and to
    God, she will understand
    this one.

    God bless!

    January 8, 2014 at 6:38 PM

    • Oh Thank you so much Dear Wendell ~ this is very beautiful and I do understand. “I love to feel…” – this is what life is all about, and it is a blessing to be able to open ones heart in such a way – to be filled with this kind of divine love. Thank you dearest Resa for sharing this here, it means so much to me.
      Huge Hugs and Love Always, Robyn

I have missed your graceful presence so very much. Blessings to you for a speedy recovery and many smiles! Much love, Robyn
