The two women embraced
But spoke not a word
The emotion wrapped them tightly
Fear, sorrow, uncertainty, gratitude, love, courage
A deep understanding of all of it
Gathered up in an eternal moment placed in one another’s heart
Each painful path different
and yet, in this moment, the same.
To be held silently, knowingly, is a great gift.
A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
So beautiful Suzanne. I’m feeling this is you and your friend from BC embraced in an emotional goodbye.

I can see why you think that but it is not. Another friend is going through a challenging time right now.
