"If you're listening, if you're awake to the poignant
beauty of the world, your heart breaks regularly. In
fact, your heart is made to break, it's purpose is
to burst open again and again so that it can hold
~ Andrew Harvey
This has been a hard week.
As soon as I read Ginny's plea
I began praying and like so
many other's my heart was
broken when I heard of Sarah's
passing...my worst nightmare
as a mother coming true.
I took the rest of the week to
exhale, to deep clean my living
room, even taking apart the
ceiling fan. I clean when I'm
upset so my living room is
now spotless. I brought paint
to paint the hutch, this color,
but may use it to paint a bathroom
since my heart is really set on
something much brighter, like
turquoise. Now to just help
Mike see my vision. Ahem.
I received a beautiful postcard
in the mail all the way from AZ
of the Grand Canyon. I would
love to swap more postcards,
are you interested?
Along with all the rain we have
had, [and hail, oh my,] there has
been sunshine and time to sit outside
and knit, a balm to my soul.
The dragonflies are everywhere
and every time I see one I think
of little fairies fluttering around,
they always bring a smile.
Life is good, and while there is
so much I struggle to understand
I continue to look with wonder at
all the beauty it holds.
and peace as we begin a new month
tomorrow and another weekend.
