I Snuck Away Today.
Away from the busyness of the hospital and
the sorrow in one of my tiny patient’s room.
Away from people needing something from me.
Away, away, away I went.
Out into the courtyard,
where a gorgeous day greeted me
and nature was all around.
I watched the squirrels for awhile,
completely lost in observing
their playful movements.
And, I felt the magic envelope me.
The magic that comes to swirl about us
and fill us right back up just when we need it.
At the time where we stood at the edge of
having nothing more to give,
it all comes back.
And, we find ourselves at a different place,
able to go forward and fill up others
because we first filled ourselves up.
I hope that you sneak away today
and that you find little, precious
moments to fill
