~ Because there are still stories and songs to meet and know and share
~ Because rogue waves of goodness sometimes sweep me up
(and it’s joy to get swept up)
~ Because wind moves things, and there may always come a breeze.
~ Because I’m curious, and there is shelter enough
to go wilding with hope
~ Because seeds and somedays
~ Because healing happens, too.
~ Because beautiful beginnings get born every day
and nothing is beyond redemption.
~ Because a smell can drift up sudden and escort me
to places of unspeakable comfort
~ Because I’m brave enough
(and so are you)
Because restoration and color and farmer’s markets and gentle dogs
and moving water and tall trees and fresh mercy and Scarborough Fair sorbet
and the way muscles seem to sigh peace after a massage.
I hope maybe this simple list feels a little like that to your heart, too, my friend.
A breath of sweet peace to you:)
