I entered the Silent Sanctuary of my Sacred Heart shortly after I woke up this morning. The words to It’s Christmas were taking form so I caught them on paper. I share, in memory, all who have helped shape my life. I honor mother and dad for giving us life, grandpa and grandma Widner who opened their hearts and home to us after mother died. I honor aunts and uncles, Judy, my friend, Bill, the father of Dawn, Craig, and Jason, whom I shared my early adult life with, The love of my youth. I honor my beloved younger brother. Terry for his humility, humor, love of God and love of family. I honor his gift of music…and then there is Bob, my soul mate who strengthened me, who walked with me through the highs and lows and just loved me for who I was in the moments. I honor the laughter, the tears, the growing pains that grew our souls through forever love……and so it is, the circle of life. I am so grateful
It’s Christmas! It’s Christmas and memories abound.
Sometimes through laughter. Sometimes through tears.
A reminder of life’s fullness lived through the years.
A journey of love their gift is clear.
Don’t resist, run away or hide from emotions that arise.
Welcome them for in order to heal we have to feel.
A testament of love
This journey of grief
Trek on in gratitude knowing love never dies.
It is the eternal spring within our hearts connected through the veil.
