Left for me on my door step by a lovely friend…
The inside is just as lovely. She let me know that I am going to write a new chapter for my life and gave me a spot to do so.
You know, even when love does not look the way you expect it to look, it’s still there. This experience has taught me to be open to all of it and to be more grateful for what I do have.
And I do have so many blessings.
People who leave me little gifts, people who make sure I have enough food for my kids, people who talk to me endlessly, people who text me to check in, people who email me to say hi, people who message me to support me, people who hug me, people who distract me, people who comment here, people who call, people who stop by, people who show me time and time again how much they care.
It’s so very easy to focus on the one thing you don’t have when it has been the focus of half your life. That’s what I’ve been doing. Because it hurts.
But you know what?
I look at that paragraph I just wrote and realize that I have gained so much. I have gained the ability to truly see people and to truly give and accept love in any form it chooses.
