i receiving a smile
in Starbucks today
from a woman who has not smiled at me in many years.
a quick, vulnerable, raw, needs no answer, just an ear
confession email from a friend today.
my girl being there
for both her afternoon classes
even when every fiber of her being wanted not to be.
my hot tears this morning
a dear friend
stating her truth about what her job does to her soul.
again, no answer needed..just an ear.
a friend allowing her birth story to unfold as it needed to
rather than as she dreamed it would
- such bravery shown there-
we are all so brave
in so many small ways all day long.
