I like to use the Togo bells that belong to my son,
the sound seems to still and calm me before I begin to eat.
Now I am using a music bowl that he brought to me
saying "the sound last longer and you might like this bowl."
I do like it....
much prayer, many tears, reflection and thoughts of past family times.
My younger sister passed away about 6 years ago
and my younger brother passed away 2 days ago.
Grandparents, parents and sister nnd brother
no longer here
I stand alone
for my children
as the oldest in our family.
Miss so many special friends
in my past.
I search for words to share
and seem to find none
until I open several of my books
"Stillness blankets me
cushions me against my own
wraps me in her protective shawl
keeps my tender heart
on the thorns
of the world" Judith Prest
May I live this day
Compassionate of heart,
Clear in word,
Gracious in awareness,
Courageous in thought,
Generous in Love John O'Donohue
