Whenever I get a chance to sit out in the sun, whether it be as children laugh and play and I chat with other moms, or I’m alone with Claire at the park, or I’m taking advantage of our sunny backyard, my favorite line from a poem pops into my head:
Amé. Fui amado. El sol acarició mi faz.
~ from En Paz by Amado Nervo
I loved. I was loved. The sun caressed my face.
~ from En Paz (At Peace) by Amado Nervo
This poems speaks to my very being. I am so fortunate to be where I am right now. Everything has led to this point, and will lead me forward.
And, I’m at peace.
