Ohh, Jenni. I want to just wrap you in a giant bear hug. This brought me to tears. I agree with MA's comment, prayers your table and heart will be soon full.
Poetically speaking this is really beautiful. The sentiment is just wonderful. My goodness. I also love the structure - it looks like a flower in a vase or some sort of centerpiece, which is fitting for the topic. <3
This is heartrendingly beautiful. It makes me think of moments I miss too and conversations that mean far too much to be forgotten. I can still taste our favorite meals and these words seem more vivid each time I read them. You have not only put us in your shoes and broken our hearts, but you have penned it with such a profound nature that it's stunning.
This sounds similar to how I feel now living in an apartment, alone. Everyone says they envy my freedom, the freedom that comes with living alone. But this freedom comes with its own chains, the chains of loneliness. Thank you for penning words that speak to my heart.
