The anger and hurt were very real. And in my mind quite justified. To the extent that I held on to those feelings all these years.
Then today came – in a climate of fear and not knowing what tomorrow may bring – and I wondered if love can somehow overcome such deep-seated negative emotions.
YES IT CAN – and it did.
I reached out in a spirit of love and love came back with open arms. Not perfect – just a step in the right direction.
How do I know that? Because my heart finally felt unburdened by the weight of anger and hurt, seemingly justified as they may be to the mind.
It took a virus to open up my heart. I still hate the devastation that you bring. But maybe love is what’s needed to conquer you.
