I have been wondering


I have been wondering…. I saw a woman leave her body during illness… She left it bit by bit, until I think the rest of us were as ready as we could be to say goodbye… Then she left her body entirely. I wonder if the struggle of her heart, mind and body that I witnessed the last few years of her life, if in that struggle, we can somehow see the struggle, the beauty and the love of all mankind? If somehow, each and every one of us holds the tiny speck that holds it all….. I am grateful to this day that she let me share some of her journey, and as I cry and miss her, I hold my heart in love bigger than me, but still small enough to fit a sore heart and the tender hand that reaches out to dry my cheeks…….. I been wondering….
