I had a friend I thought I would grow old with, but the friendship was false.
I had a title that I thought fit me until it did not.
I thought I knew the heart of my country – but lately, I am less sure.
Life unfolds in mysterious and unpredictable ways.
The truest things I know are found in what comes forward from the earth,
in the miracles of the natural world,
the connections of two souls adrift, and found –
in the innocence of a child,
deep in a dog’s eyes,
and in the wonder of joy restored. From this:
Eddie found his forever home this weekend.
“As change is the order of Nature,
And beauty springs from decay,
So in its destined season
The false for the true makes way.”
~Alice Carey, “The Time to Be”

Your posts often make me cry, they are so beautiful.
Not cry…celebrate what is still right with this crazy world of ours. 🙂
Tears of joy that Eddie found his home! ❤
Best day of our week!
Hate to repeat a comment, but – Amen.
I’m celebrating your beautiful post – as others have said, Amen to that! I haven’t been around too much, but when I see your posts something magical happens when I open them. Best to you ~
And to you, Mary. Thank you!
Oh, you have gone straight to the heart of the truest things, my friend. Beautiful post. Hurray for Eddie!
Beautiful. Heartfelt. All so true.
