“I made this thank you note. I’m going to give it to my family.”
“what are you thanking them for?”
“I’m going to thank them for being my family.”
“if the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.”
*Eckhart von Hochheim (c. 1260 – c. 1328), commonly known as Meister Eckhart, was a German theologian, philosopher, and mystic.
it was a quiet, simple act
a couple walking in my direction
the man bent down
to tie his companion’s shoe
and in this tiny moment
revealed his heart.
“let me tie your shoes. i don’t want you tripping and falling for someone else.”
feeding the worms and roll-poly’s
everyone’s got to eat
all meals are free and served with love
“food is our common ground.”
after a fun afternoon
and wonderful evening
spent visiting and playing
grandies are tired and tucked in
when suddenly the tears come
missing mom and dad
a story, Kleenex, hugs, a visit from the cat, and a goodnight call to mom
everyone settles in for the night
does it get any better than that?
“very little is needed to make a happy life.”
more love please.
