For a dear friend in mourning

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”

-Lewis

 

My heart is with yours. Be well and heal, my friend.

    The Lewis quote is haunting and yet fulfilling? Not sure if that’s the best word. My thoughts and prayers are with your friend. May the peace of healing find her soon.

  4. Thank you so much for your words of comfort…and then I come to your page to find that you have another friend that is also in pain and the quote by Lewis is vivid and true…. Gracias por tu apoyo y oraciones….
