Words....

There is something that touches my heart in such a profound way about the written word...doesn't matter if it comes in the form of a letter or an E mail....what speaks to me is the heart to heart...I have been so blessed to have words come my way as I travel this path....words that I now am much freer to pass onto others...words and even art that comes from my heart and is offered to someone else for no other reason than to let them know that my heart hears them...my heart holds them.
We as humans have at times lost this connection....this neighbor helping neighbor .... I WANT IT BACK!! And I am GETTING it back in my own way....HERE....I have had the opportunity to be touched by and touch so many people that I would of never known....my heart is full tonight...for words...for connections....for love.
As I continue on this journey with Michael I am discovering how precious time is...how you cannot continue to put things off for a better opportunity...a better day...that we have no idea if that opportunity or day will ever come and therefore we missed doing something. I do not wish to miss anything anymore....I wish to laugh with all my heart...smile...dream and then watch as I make those dreams come true...dance in the living room as the oldies play on the radio....and sing off key if that is what strikes me...not worrying if it is considered the wrong thing to do...or if I look silly in any way....I wish to be open and communicate...to know and be known...I wish to share who I am and what I do...along with learning about others...touching hearts...
I strive now each day to remember to ENJOY almost every moment....It is a lesson that I am FINALLY learning....And although this situation is not the one that I would of wished had finally given me this valuable lesson....I am grateful none the less for learning it....I am DISCOVERING that life is FULL and BEAUTIFUL if you just allow it to be and by letting others INTO your life ...You become that much more whole....
