The Letter


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

i got a letter the other day

i didn’t read it until today

sometimes i have to be

at the right place in my mind

to receive the words from

my friend so kind..

this one did it for me today

her words of kindness

had much to say..

from one whom

has had a hard life

but you wouldn’t know..

it brought tears to my eyes

because it was heaven sent.

positivity from my friend so kind

when i know in fact her world is not..

much to be glum about

but she is not.

reminding me to love

and be thankful for those that do..

to look for the good and for animals too

that are in our care on planet earth..

so a reminder to me

to not murmur nor complain..

be a light in this world

that seems as though

it is losing it’s glimmer

thank you friend for coming along

and sending me a lovely letter..

Natalie Scarberry~

I was going through some files of blog posts that I had kept, but not read in a few years. I found myself learning that a dear sweet blogger had passed away. My heart sunk, as from her posts, I felt a deep connection with Natalie. A deeply wise and gifted woman. I am sad, but know that one day, there will be a time to meet again. I think about the people that have blessed me, some for just a short season. That is how life is. I recall meeting a kind woman from Taiwan one year. Our acquaintance was brief, but when we were departing, and knowing that it would perhaps be the last time to meet here on earth, we wept like we had known each other for years. To you Natalie Scarberry, I found out that Hollyhocks are your favorite flower and I will be sure to plant them this spring. I will look at their beauty and think of you.
