Sometimes – every rare once in a while, my heart feels like it is about to burst. This evening is one of those times.
I feel so full of love that my body can’t contian it – love and gratitude. A ton of gratitude.
First, was Lee’s birthday party: so much love in that room and so beautiful to be with my women. Then Sandra’s walk today, with a small vial of Sandra in my pocket walking with my women, feeling the love surrounding us feeling Sandra near us, all around us. I wanted to hold on to those women and never let them go.
Then walking home up that long hill and understanding, in a flash, what I had to do with that piece of Sandra entrusted to me – put her in my backpack and take her with me to all my mountaintops and through all the forests and canyons and up the snowfields – everywhere I go, I will take this woman I loved, who loved walking so much. She will walk with me. And I feel that love.
And then, ending up the day with a long talk with Kathleen, a new friend and one I have come to love and appreciate so very much. She is an amazing and beautiful person. I am so grateful to have her in my life.
My heart is full of love. And tomorrow I will be back in the arms of the man I love.
