she crawled into bed & I lifted the sheet.
I felt her long, lean body and I snuggled it in. I did not think to move her or turn away from her. Instead I leaned in more. She wrapped her arms around my neck & I whispered, ” I love you sweet girl”
Holding my baby tight. My heart heavy from another day of violence and fear.
For now, I only have this. Kindness & love to my family, the strangers I pass in the day & a dedication in my life to do good. to help. to serve locally however I can. middle of the night squeezes help ease an aching heart when the world seems upside down. when darkness comes into our lives, I cling to her light.
