I heart this

On Facebook, my husband's younger brother posted these words: "I pray for the restoration of his health and the continuation of the joy and happiness we see here in his face."

Thank you, Bruce, both for the prayers and for that wonderful childhood picture of two brothers who love each other very much.

  1. Like Owen and Gibson. The big brother, the small.
    A bond like no other.

    1. Joanne, healing is so slow. I do believe it is happening, though, so I'm grateful for that. And for you.

    1. Elizabeth, thank you. This period has been very sobering. We take so much for granted and don't even realize it. I have felt so broken in my body, and now I see that in fact I can do almost anything I choose. I see what true incapacitation looks/feels/sounds like. But he is healing. So he is one of the lucky ones. We are. xo

    1. Thank you, Steve. Every day a little bit more light gets in through the crack. I anticipate a flood of sunlight one of these good days, hopefully soon.

  9. I visit regularly...I absolutely love your writing, the person you are (I feel sure you are 100% authentic, in this fake world) and what you stand for. You have an incredible family and I found you through Mary Moon, another incredibly awesome blogger I stumbled upon.

    I sincerely hope your husband is beginning to feel stronger...I have suffered from backache for many years, but clearly no where near as debilitating as his...however, I know the pain and fear it induces when it's severe.

    I live in South Africa, am 63 years old, married for 40 years and have two incredible children, who bring me as much joy and pride as do yours. Also, a son and daughter, exactly as I would have wished, had I done so. I just wanted healthy babies.

    Thank you for sharing yourself. It's wonderful knowing there are some remarkable souls populating this horribly confusing planet of ours. We can only hold on to the hope that good will triumph.

    With gratitude,
    Des

    1. Dear Des, I am so glad you commented! Thank you for introducing yourself. I hope to visit your lovely country one day soon; one of my closest friends is from SA, she grew up in Durban. She's a wonderful ceramic artist; i've written about her several times. As for holding space for the good, i believe if enough of us do that, we can change the tides. I'm so glad you let me know you're here. And yes, Mary Moon is one of the planets great good souls, as I believe, are you.

  10. What a sweet photo! Isn't it wonderful to suddenly see a photo from the past that you never knew existed? It seems to add yet another layer to the past to make it more complete. I hope your husband is making progress, even if it is slow but sure.
