Words are never enough
But they are something
And sometimes they open the way for more.
It is my wish, that my words might break illusion
Or spark that quick intake of breath
That sets your heart to dancing.
For friendship’s touch in the fingers of my true love.
For each day’s small kindnesses, given freely with abundance.
For a soft kiss and a sly smile
For a deep honesty that helps me stay grounded.
For playful humor
For that home I find within those arms.
My life is delightfully tangled with this gift.
And I am so very grateful.
There are moments that catch your heart between beats
That catch your breath; that catch your soul.
Such moments whisper of a wholeness that cannot be broken,
And you know, oh, you know, it is so.

He is risen!
Now … we can rise, as well.
To joyful celebration.
Eternal life starts now.
Friendship is a beautiful thing.
It sings softly in the corners of the day.
It smiles quietly when you come through the door
And misses you when you are gone.
It is almost imperceptible at times, but then
It anchors your soul when storms come,
And rejoices in your joys, sending them soaring.
A simple hug from a friend can heal your soul.
I am so grateful for the gift, for the gifts, of friends.
