a timely whisper...

i went out looking for answers.
or so i thought.
but i wouldn't let my head clear long enough to get them.
i raked, and looked at the earth and the sky,
and would get small feelings here and there,
but i never made the space that was needed.

there in the quiet, i knew no stillness.

later, in the middle of chaos, where i would never have
thought i could still and make the space,
i did so.

and there, in the pause of the chaos, the whisper found me.

thru the window, i heard the tree -

'your heart is good.'

and that was all i needed.

My first husband, who died in 1996, used to say to me, "You're a good woman." It was the highest compliment I can remember from him.

I heard his voice, and the voices of others in that cloud of witnesses say, "Your heart is good".

Thank you for passing this along today. I needed to hear it.
