To Be Still

I dared to stop,

to be still in my heart

just long enough

for words to form

to comfort

all that was unsettled

in me.

And then I found

the comfort came

before the words

in my willingness to be

with all that is here —

in the presence of

my own soul.

    I don’t know what I would have done without Laurie’s words of encouragement over the last year and 1/2. She’s a continued well of gentle loving kindness. I think the world needs more people like this! I encourage you to visit and see for yourself. ❤
