words for wednesday

Normal day,

let me be aware of the treasure you are.

Let me learn from you, love you, bless you

before you depart.

Let me not pass you by

in the quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Let me hold you while I may,

for it may not always be so.

One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,

or bury my face in the pillow,

or stretch myself taut,

or raise my hands to the sky and want,

more than all the world,

your return.

-Mary Jean Iron

Yes! What a beautiful reminder that love truly is the point and purpose of each day-- neither of which should be taken for granted! Love to you Kristyn!

This is so good, Kristyn! I'm also printing it out to place somewhere I can see it often and be reminded of the treasures in each 'normal day'.
Blessings and angels to you,
