Loved and Heard

When I went to bed last night, I was feeling very unsettled.

Two more mass shootings and so many awful headlines in the news, a friend I was supposed to meet up with had to cancel because a family member was in the hospital, my mom got more test results in (nothing new just more confirmation) and my kid tells me if something happened to me he’d do his best to look after mom but he can’t take care of himself yet.

The only person I said anything to was my girlfriend and I didn’t even mention all the specifics. I was so tired last night, and it wasn’t just my body.

However, I’m feeling very loved and cared for this morning.  I woke up before my alarm to see my girl had left me a video of Kathy Mattea’s song “A few Good Things Remain”.  That was so sweet. I not only felt cared for but heard.

Apparently though she wasn’t the only one listening.

I also got a text of a funny meme from one friend. Then tagged by another friend on FB with a ‘writer’s make friends with the voices in their head’ meme. When the alarm goes off, Spotify’s random song is “You’re not Alone” by Allison Russell and Brandi Carlile. And to top it all off, when I go to make my coffee, there’s a note from my mom reminding me there’s leftover pancakes and bacon for breakfast.

It is going to be a good day.

Be well my friends.
