My mom had just passed and I was moments from delivering my second child. The world felt as heavy as my eight and a half month pregnant self. In those moments you wonder about life and fairness and well, love.
Within two days I had gone outside and found eight different hearts just laying there for me to "notice".
I suppose it wasn't meant to hit me until later. The beauty in this small gesture I had been gifted. I failed to even realize that this was happening until a year later. All the hearts placed in my path...
Since then my whole family finds them where ever we go. In fact my son, whom I was pregnant with, spots them even before any of his siblings. Strange? maybe. More beautiful to me now though. He is the one who found all the coral hearts.
I understand that there is so much light as well as dark in the world.
But ultimately, there is love and all we have to do is be willing to notice.
What have you been noticing lately?
