Today is melanie’s birthday!!!don’t forget!!
Winter never ends, for me it’s been a long winter, coming from the south hemisphere of Chile when the winters its cruel and cracks your skin and your feelings for the wishing of a new place where the heart feels warm and the sun rises above the valleys of my dreams. I am here stuck in this winter long, a year of winter for me. But something its different this time, my heart is warm even know that my surroundings are white as snow and the winter is still entering from the corners of the windows.. my heart is warm because i have found love and peace in her, that peace and that love for having her close to me… so even know is cold outside, even know that leafs are gone and the birds went by, the heart of us is shining for each other in a kind love that break our eyes and mouths in a gentle smile, as the sun melt the ice in a cold winter long.
there’s this really huge world map on the wall at the place where i work and i often go in that room and eat my food while staring at the map trying to memorize all the countries and trying to never forget how small i am.
to you out there feeling sad and miserable, i’m grabbing you by the shoulders and shaking you and telling you there’s no reason to be anything but amazed at the fact that you can feel those feelings in the first place, that you have a brain that let’s you think, that you have air in your lungs and blood flowing through your veins, and that if you are capable of getting up and walking, of moving your hands and creating something, anything, you’ve got everything you need. you create peace within your own life. for me it’s hope in Jesus and everything kind of stems from there. for you who don’t know what it is, get out there, find what makes your life meaningful and stop making a tragedy out of this miracle you’ve been given.
