Have you ever had your heart so full of love that you feel it could burst?
Yep, that’s me at the moment 🙂
I bought a beautiful children’s book in a local shop today. It’s called In My Heart, A Book of Feelings written by Jo Witek and illustrated by Christine Roussey.
I know it’s aimed at explaining feelings to children but the page I randomly opened up at said exactly what I’ve been feeling lately.
Sometimes my heart feels like a big yellow star; shiny and bright. I smile from ear to ear and twirl around so fast, I feel as if I could take off into the sky.
This is when my heart is happy.
Have you ever fallen in love?
You see I became a grandmother last week and my heart is bursting with love; not only for my new baby granddaughter but also for my daughter and son-in-law for producing such a perfect little baby and their new life with everything ahead of them; love for my family who have been through so much this year and love for myself for being tenacious and hanging in there when the going got tough.
I’m proud to be a grandmother, to know that my genes have contributed to this little baby girl’s makeup, who I know I will love unconditionally forever and ever. Falling in love again is a wonderful feeling.
But my heart doesn’t stay sad. Like springtime after winter, the sun comes out again. My heart grows tall, like a plant reaching toward the sky.
This is when my heart is hopeful.
I think finding this book was quite fortuitous and very timely. I can highly recommend it, it is a beautifully written book suitable for all ages!!
Have you had a full heart lately? Can you relate to this??
