I miss them, the people I call family.
I miss looking into their eyes at the end of the day and hearing their stories of life.
I miss holding the hand of the one I call husband and friend.
I miss the babies who call me “Nonna” and greet me with hugs and kisses. I miss sleepovers and storytime.
I miss the way my own house smells like life and love all mixed together.
But I will pause for a moment and refresh myself.
I will swim in the sea and drink deep of this life where I sit beneath the stars and the moon and pray till my voice reaches heaven.
I will embrace the morning as the sun rises over the ocean, I will sing to the one who loves me and knows me.
I will walk on the beach leaving footprints in the sand, a reminder that I was here but just for a moment.
My soul has been recharged, my spirit has come alive.
I have learned to love myself and embrace who God made me to be.
I have abandoned my fears and took bold steps.
I have brought my unforgivness to the cross.
When I return I will have much more to give the people I love.
I realize that life is but a moment and in this moment I choose to embrace all that God has for me.
make your moment count.
Praying for you,
