The gift of belonging

It’s strange,
all this separation
has awakened more
belonging than
I’ve ever known.

What we can’t
earn or buy,
we can give
and receive.

Unwrapping treasures
more beautiful
and liberating than
I’d ever expected.

Not holding back –
there’s no failure,
only learning, exploring
and becoming.

We belong,
and what
we’re part of is
so much bigger than
we realise.

It’s a gift.

Don’t brush it away.

~ I hadn’t realised how important this was to me until we shared what we were thankful for in 2020 during our Linden Sunday gathering on Zoom yesterday.
