Stand Up, Be Kind, & Show Love

Love swallows hate, 
heals wounds, 
& soothes griefs. 


How we feel is real--honor it, 
give it place, 
take it to a quiet, thoughtful space...
then, let's stand up.


Let's stand up with courage, kindness, 
grace, hope, & love. 

Let's stand up and fortify our homes & communities with truth 
and the powerful safety of compassion. 

Let's stand up in respect 
for the goodness in each other. 

Let's stand up & link arms
 with those too weary or too worried to stand.

 Let's stand up to fight our daily battles--
side by side. 

Let's stand up to prove that 
we are greater than we think we are, 
and far better than we might feel 
at this moment.

Let's stand up strong, 
ready for whatever tides may come, 
holding tight to the power that hope releases--when we choose love. 

*My thoughts on a particularly intense post-election Wednesday*


Every day in November!  NaBloPoMo: National Blog Posting Month. Write a post on your blog every day in November. After a really massive break in my blogging, this will be the 4th year (not in a row, clearly), I've decided to tackle this challenge & enjoy the opportunity to switch to writing mode. I  have actually been looking forward to this for awhile--because I really do enjoy writing and don't make time to do it enough! Want to join me? Leave your blog link in the comments so I can follow you too! Or not. Does anyone follow blogs anymore?
