Love notes from heaven

A quiet rest

Your sleepy hand selects

A relaxing book —

On your book shelf for decades

A treasure of treasures.

Some restful sounds,

No loud music.

Then, immaculate quiet enters

And helpful sleep

Drifts towards your eyelids–

Welcomed visitors

After a soul weary day.

You open the book

A tattered tiny note in

A familiar handwriting

Falls into your weary hands.

You read the note, it states,

“Its about time you read this book.

Love Mom.”

No longer sleepy,

You quickly turn the page and read the book title

Written still in that familiar handwriting,

“Love notes to my children, luv Mom, November 7, 1997”


We are all “standing on the shoulders of giants” (Isaac Newton), many of whom are the unsung heroes and heroines of our past who have encouraged and who have nurtured us, to help us become who we are meant to be.

Have a restful evening and my prayers for you for a vibrant tomorrow.
