Heart Sister

Katie with her family
If we are lucky on the rocky road of life we will be honored to find our Heart Sisters. These are special people who gift us with a bond, who accept us with all their heart unconditionally. They encourage you , and hold your hand when the bottom falls out. Literally they are there through thick and thin. I have been lucky to find several of my Heart sisters on this present journey.  Today I say good bye to one . I will miss you Katie. Thank you for 24 years of friendship . You were a devoted mother and a steadfast friend. You have run the good race. The words of  e e cummings say it all.

I carry your heart with me by e e cummings

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
                                  i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
