Heart to Heart-
Bloggers on occasion find themselves asking” does anybody read what I share.” I ask myself that sometimes too. It’s only human to want to know that you are sharing something people want to read/learn/do. I put my heart into everything I share at Katherines Corner so it only seems logical that I share a true heart to heart story with you today.
I received an email last month that I have been keeping close to my heart. Not sure if I would, or even if I should, share it with you. Every time I think of it, when I shared with my hubby, and even now when I write this post, tears leave a trail down my cheeks. But, an email I received yesterday asking me, “ does anybody read my blog?” prompted me to share with you.
Sweet bloggy friends, I almost didn’t open the email. I didn’t recognize the name or the email address. But, my heart knew I should read it. I know that may sound silly to some of you, how does your heart know? It just knew. As I began reading, “ Dear Katherine you don’t know me but, I am _____’s Mother. I am getting her affairs in order and I wanted you to know that she had passed on. She continued on by telling me that Katherines Corner was part of her daughters every day routine and although she never left a public comment she enjoyed her visits to Katherines Corner.
These are my own words summarizing the email I received.
Her bed was moved closer to the window. The warmth of the sunshine chilled her aches and pains. Sounds of wildlife outside her wooded yard drew up the corners of her mouth to form a smile. Trapped by her broken body, she found comfort in emails to friends, social network visits and time spent at Katherines Corner.
I didn’t even know her name until I received the email from her Mother. Unknowingly I was a part of her daily life and I was overwhelmed by emotions as I read each word. This sweet soul, no longer bound by a body that betrayed her, started every day with time spent at Katherines Corner. I was truly, deeply saddened by her loss and I felt grateful and blessed to know that she was a reader.
If you ever find yourself asking, “does anyone read my blog?” Know from one heart to heart experience that they do. Have a beautiful weekend and from my heart to yours, thank you for visiting and for your bloggy friendship.♥
