From Two Writing Teachers today:
“There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you’d better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you’ll never understand what it’s saying.”
— Sarah Dessen
This quote it resonating with me today. It’s been that quiet day, that listening to my heart day. Perhaps this is because my brother texted me to let me know his mother-in-law, Betty, passed from this earth early this morning.
She was diagnosed with brain cancer in December. And my brother, “retired” early from the space industry, with time, spent everyday with her. This weekend the whole family was with her to be together and say good-byes.
Tonight when I spoke to him we talked about the differences between losing our aunt last June. She was determined to die on her own without family around.
I am listening to my heart today and sending love through the miles to my brother and his family.
