Happy Again

It’s peaceful out here tonight.
The snow makes everything
‘ so quiet.
And I breathe deeply.
I didn’t know if I’d truly know
happiness again
that I could feel this good.
I thought I had lost myself,
never to find the old me again
I didn’t find the old me exactly.

What I am starting to discover
is the me that God created
me to be . . .
the one I was
before I developed patterns of coping
with pain and loss
patterns that are no longer helpful.
The me who now
knows herself more fully
and in turn can relate more fully
with God and others.

Tonight I feel deep joy.
I am so glad it is still to be found.
My heart broke,
my world crashed around me
but in the rebuilding I found
strength I’d never known.
Thank you, God.
