Heartbeats

What have you learned in your life about love?

Listening to stories from a favorite gramma

Watching a grandfather change a brother’s diaper

Helping mom make French Toast on a Saturday morning

Hearing a back gate scrape – dad was home

The loud shenanigans of little brothers 

Friendships made and friendships lost

Lovers lost and lovers found

One tiny heartbeat next to your own

Angel windchimes made from tiny hands

The hands that cook a favorite meal

Wiggly pups and endless kisses

Holding a grandchild for the very first time

Counting tiny fingers and toes – 

Loving your child’s husband as your own

Embracing all that truly matters
