Deep Rivers and Light in the Darkness

I really needed my journaling today.
With all of the emotions the past week
it calms me, centers me, is my release, my peace, my focus.
Like prayer or meditation.

At the end of this very long day,
I stood on one side of my mom's hospital bed
while my daughter stood at the other
and I thought about the three generations
of us.

So many feelings
so many unsaid words
so much
Who is strong and who is fragile?
Maybe we are both

In all of the sadness lately
I try to remember the beauty
the colors
the sparkle of the season.
And when I  hear the carols on the radio
playing "Where are You Christmas?"
I really know that it is in our hearts

Thank you for your thoughts & prayers for my Mom.
I told her tonight, about all of you,
and she smiled.
She really did.
So, thank you BIG.

Continued healing prayers for your mom. A smile on her face is a very good thing. Your journaling is such a joy and this post really says it so well. A kind of balance in this topsy turvy world we are living in. I too have been reflecting on the old Christmas carols this season.
