I’ve chosen to share a poem I wrote 5 months after my husband passed away. I’m grateful to be here almost 6 years later, not so paralyzed by that pain and grief. I’ve still sadness in my heart as I miss him so very much, and grief still visits occasionally, but I’ve learned to not hide the tears when they need to come.
Funny thing. I haven’t participated in a weekly prompt in months. This morning, I was jotting down a list for 2023. Little things, some bigger things, at least for me. I stopped making NY Resolutions a long time ago as it was just a set up for leaving me feeling like a failure. Imagine my surprise as I was scrolling through WP and came across todays weekly prompt … so here’s my 2023 want-to-do-bucket list of sorts. There’s no pressure……I like that!
more God, more hoping, more faith, more stillness
more sunrises, more books, more reflecting,
more simplicity, more peace, more patience,
more listening, more conversation, more connections,
more dragonflies, more kitty cuddles, more balance
