Two gifts for you

In these hard days, I offer you a poem and a song.
The poem is from Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer. Please check out her work at her website; www.ahundredveils.com
The Most Important Thing
communicating in the time of Corona Virus Just two weeks ago, it was sufficient to say, hello, good morning, good bye. But now, in every text, every email, every phone call, I tell my friends and family how much I love them. I tell them life is better because they are in it. I say it with the urgency of a woman who knows she could die, who knows this communication could be our last. I slip bouquets into my voice. I weave love songs into the spaces between words. I infuse every letter, every comma, with prayers. Sometimes it makes me cry, not out of fear, but because the love is so strong. How humbling to feel it undiluted, shining, like rocks in the desert after a rain, to know love as the most important thing, to remember this as I keep on living.
Then please listen to this beautiful song by Carrie Newcomer, "You Can do This Hard Thing".
Do take care of yourself and your spirit in these difficult times. We CAN do this hard thing -- together.
