HEARTFELT THANKS

She could feel her heart beating

As she sat in quiet stillness


She contemplated its beat

The steady rhythm of life

Reliable, remarkable

Pumping the life through her

Coursing within her

The very essence

That kept her moving and aware


But it was so much more


It was her connection

Her centre of feeling


She thought of all the words

Used to describe it


Heartache, heartfelt

Heartless, heartburn

Heartbreak, heartsick

Heartwarming


It ached when she felt sad

Leaped when she felt love

Jumped when she felt fear

Sang when she felt joy


How often she took it for granted

Assumed it would just keep beating

and it did


She held her hands over it now

And blessed it

Loved it for its unending service

Thanked it for being there


Through the joy of her children

Through the love of her man

Through the grief of her loss

For the hope of her future


and it beat again......

Our hearts are an amazing organ. Strong, muscular, living organs.

They not only pump our blood around, but it's where we experience many emotions and feelings.

The flutter when we feel a connection with a lover, the bulge of joy felt deep inside, the expansion of love as we watch a child discover new things.


The deep ache of the loss of a loved one, the heartbreak of this incredible grief that sometimes knows no bounds.


Yet, most of the time, it keeps on beating. Keeps working to sustain life within.


Take a moment today to really appreciate the marvellous miracle that is your heart - give it some love back, bless it and feel full gratitude for this amazing instrument.


With a loving heart

Chelle
