Wednesday’s A Moment…

Wednesdays are for taking a moment during the week and counting blessings, or telling funny stories, and anticipating the approaching weekend. I’d love for you to share your Wednesday moment in the comments or attach a link to your blog.

No Words Necessary

I stopped to tell her I thought
her brave for the daily lessons,
the study of language and law,
and offered to buy her a cup of coffee.

She declined, smiling
not demurely, but with force,
her personality shining forth. Her English
was broken, but lovely, and
we easily found common ground.

Two times I’ve failed, she
showed me her fingers: a peace symbol.
Oh, yes, I replied. It’s hard. My son
failed twice, I lied. Her smile once
more lit up the table. Did he pass?
Yes, and you will, also.

That smile, that smile.

Today I am grateful for those who keep trying & for those who’ve come before , blazing a bright path for others to follow.

The dialogue starts with you. What connections have you made this week?
