like the sun, each day
nothing special asked
just be there
provide light, when needed
give warmth, always
special things happen
when we’re fully present
when we set ourselves aside
surrender to the moment
give ourselves to others
by simply being there
it starts by opening our hearts
reaching out with love
holding hands with truth
then, like the sculptor
what’s always longed to be beautiful
Dedicated to Jim and Elayne Devine
for their caring and sharing.

(i’ve been blogging for a while, but went through some renovations and redecorating and slightly different approaches to blogging.)
