Grief and joy

What's with the tongue??  Right now, my gorgeous niece Elizabeth takes great delight in licking me and her dad and her mom.  It's wonderfully silly and joyful.  Just what I need right now.  Love you baby girl!


It is only when we silence the blaring sounds
of our daily existence
that we can finally hear the whispers of truth
that life reveals to us,
as it stands knocking
on the doorsteps of our hearts.

I'm wanting whispers and silence and stillness in the aftermath of losing my sister.  Grief and joy can live side by side.
