The Heart of the Matter



A friend just sent me this stunning photo of herself with her newborn. To be held and kissed like this is the most blessed and necessary way to begin this life— wanted, welcomed and loved with the full measure of our boundless heart. If we are fortunate, it also is the preferred way to leave this life— held, coddled and kissed as we move into that last passageway.

And if we are very fortunate, it is also the way we live all the days in-between. 

May it be so!
