For Missie

Is your heart ever heavy for someone and you can’t seem to find the right words to say to them? 

A few days ago I wrote a post about how several of my friends and family members are in the sea of sadness. The day I wrote it, I found myself out walking in the wildflowers. 

I just came in from doing the same thing. The wind is chatty today and Queen Anne and the girls are dancing in the breeze. Clouds are peppering up the sky and the sun’s rays have nicely warmed this summer day.

I love how nature has the ability to be comforting and healing all on its own. At times when words get jumbled up and hearts are hurting, nature can wrap her arms around us without saying a word. 

My cousin lost her beloved husband six days ago and he was way too young. She lives several states away and I have had no idea what I can do to ease her heartache. 

Words seem stale. I can’t say I know that kind of pain, because I don’t. I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out if there’s anything I can do. And, there is. 

I can share a bit of nature’s calming embrace.

For you, Missie. ~Thinking of you, dear cousin. ​​
