i do not set out to go where i end up today
but a few miles away from home, the voice in my head
tells me to call. the urge is so strong and out of the blue, that i have no choice
but to listen, even though it is Christmas Eve. i make the call and
i find unconditional support and real truths
(no sugar-coating done for my mamma heart) which
helps me beyond measure. . . and gives me some peace.
i am again, amazed at the good in people
their willingness to share their knowledge without judgement
or expectations. their willingness to give of themselves.
i arrive home calm and ready for Christmas. as it starts to get dark snow falls
and he and i, along with the dog, bundle up and head out to walk the pond.
we run into several neighbors doing the very same thing.
