Permission to let go.

12-20-2018

 

I send you peace, love, and ease.
I send you a long nap in the middle of the day, your cats snuggled beside you.
I send you Grandma’s quilt wrapped around you as you read a great book.
I send you laughter with your best friend as you sip cinnamon tea.
I send you the memory of your childhood and the sound of your mother’s voice late at night.
I send you a kiss on the forehead.
I send you a deep sigh of letting go.
I send you a heart that can hold your grief just as confidently as it holds your joy.
I send you the surprise of colored lights as you turn a corner in the part of your world where you thought it was pitch dark.
I send you striped candy canes and the smell of pine.
I send you a pillow scented with lilac.
I send you deep sleep.
I send you a sky full of twinkling stars who hold your secret dreams.
I send you oceans of release.
I send you long meals with people you love.
I send you clove scented candles and flickering flames.
I send you a hot bath with eucalyptus bubbles.
I send you a space of time to sit and gently watch the sun set.
I send you the giggles of children.
I send you your own heart’s squeal of delight.
I send you buttered toast on a quiet morning before the sun rises.
I send you the sound of snow crunching under your feet.
I send you the smell of a newborn’s sweet cheeks.
I send you a box filled with hope.
I send you one more breath, one more moment.
I send you here, now, all okay.
I send you the deepest love for who you are and for your sweet heart.
I send you peace.

Seek celebration—even in the dark corners,
