Hearts are tender…. They open and close like flowers chasing the sun, resting quietly in the shadow. Hearts are strong, resilient, and re-storing. Hearts are vessels which hold love, dispense love, receive love. They quiver gratefully in the presence of grace and resonate with courage when witnessing the need of another which is in any degree greater than our own need. Tonight my heart is all of this….quivering, blooming, courageous, and profoundly tender. For this night’s sleep, I will cradle it in the rocking of my chest as I breathe and marvel at its ability to be all I need it to be. Deep peace…..
