You Are Loved

A simple black and white sign posted in the weeds at the side of the road.  I was headed to the β€œbig city” of Wenatchee to pick up a few things at Costco.  (It was early March and I was blissfully unaware that panic buying had become a thing…)

When I spied that sign, β€œYOU’RE LOVED”, on the side of the road, I was flooded with an unexpected wave of emotions; relief, love, safety, sadness, gratitude, desire to help.  All of it at one time.  In that split second, I believed I was loved, fully, completely, unconditionally loved.  

I did not dissolve into a puddle right there on highway 2, but I did give myself a moment to feel, FEEL ALL OF IT.  All the startling and wonderful emotions AND the dark, scary ones.

And for that one second, despite COVID-19 and fear and scarcity of TP, I was at peace.  I believed I had everything I needed in that one moment.  This is the power of belief (thoughts).

The next second?  Back in my car, back in my brain, hurtling down the road.

But, I wasn’t the same.Β  I was smiling.
