Blessings in the palm of my hand
A few weeks ago this ------------------------------>
lovely little Blessings heart showed up in a package at my front door.
That morning was going downhill fast and then out of the blue a message from a special friend and the gift. The message was a hug from an understanding friend.
The heart, small and substantial, polished and smooth with indentations. Not unlike a human heart being welded together, all the broken bits- splits and chips, melding together into one workable, wiser, and defensive thing.
This heart, shiny and new, is weighty, like an anchor in the turmoil of the past few years and months. Focus on the blessings, I tell myself.
I let her know how much this meant to me. With things up and down as they often go, I was blessed from out of nowhere, not actually nowhere, but out of the ordinary. That's what she is. Extraordinary.
I wish everyone of you will have an out of the ordinary day whenever you are most in need of one. You are blessed and a blessing to others.
