I thought I was beyond words this week.
Children killed while innocently playing on Gaza beach and Malaysian planes being shot from the sky…. incomprehensible senselessness.
Then, while trying to reply to Kelly’s heart wrenching post over at a life less frantic, I managed a sentence or two that I have shared below.
I hear your pain, I feel your sadness, I hear your grief, I feel your anguish as life disrespectfully goes on regardless… hearing our pain, feeling our sadness, hearing our grief, feeling our anguish is how our compassion unites kindred souls and respectfully honours that which cannot be undone.
If you are choking back tears of sorrow for whatever reasons today please let them flow. In the words of Washington Irving…
“There is sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.”
~ Washington Irving
I think I’ll leave todays thoughts here. Love Xxx
