i carry you...

here is the deepest secret nobody  knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life: which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart ( i carry it in my heart)

"There is no footprint too small that it cannot leave a lasting imprint on our hearts"

I am reminded tonight of all I take for granted.  Healthy, happy grandchildren that I get to see often.  A place to call home.    Flowers that grow in my garden.  A job I truly love to do.  A family that loves me.  My best friend to share life with.  Stories to tell, journeys to make...pictures to take....I take it all for granted.  It can change in the beat of a heart.  And it did, for a young couple I know very well.  My heart aches for them.  No one should have to bear what they have...but they do it with a smile on their face, and love in their heart.  They show me what faith is...what hope means.....what family does.  To Tori and Jeremy...I'm so sorry, again.  Life isn't fair.  I know it's not suppose to be...but I'll never stop wishing it were.  Know that those tiny footprints leave an imprint on many hearts tonight. We carry your heart in ours.
