Post #31(?)...What I want...Lotsa Bloggin...today

many things are swimming around in my heart and mind today....these last days have been very tumultuous...to say the least...so 'll be bloggin a lot today...a number of entries...here's the first:

The Gift

I received a gift yesterday...
a priceless, precious gift.
someone gave me more than 4 hours out of their day.

17% of their day was given to me...in thought...in patient waiting....in quiet conversation...it was given with care and love and concern.

I was touched by this gift...deeper than the giver may ever know....
and yet...I feel...cheap...dirty...sad.....
because I didnt..and dont deserve this most excellent...eloquent...gift.

I could never repay this gift...nor match the depth of self with which it was given
and so, I am grieved.

I know...it was a gift...not demanding repayment, but gifts of love and life such as
this compel within the receiver a desire to return tenfold... a hundred fold....the sentiment and desire with which the gift was given.

My heart cries out to do that, and yet...practicality loudly claims that it cannot be done.....

and so I grieve.....

and wonder.......

I feel helpless...and lost...and sad.

Sometime it is a gift that we give to others to let them help us, let them listen to us, let them know that they matter to others.
