Though we seldom acknowledge their importance, the creaks of daily living are the sustenance of our existence. When we speak out we wait for a reply to know we’ve been heard. It is the hand we reach for in the night that reassures us that we are safe and loved.
Assurances do not rest in things to be, but in what is here right now whether or not we are in need.
No matter how confident we are, most of us still welcome the touches that validate us. We like to feel connected and to know others care about us. Support might appear in subtle forms such as winks, nudges, or hugs. Of course there are always electronic touches as well such as phone calls, emails, texts, Facebook messages, and even blog comments.
The links of common interest feed us, but it is truly the union of hearts that make us feel alive. It is in loving and knowing we are loved in return. Assurance is the calm confidence in knowing who you can trust and relying on them to pick you up when you fall.
Most of us expect the sun to rise tomorrow though there is no guarantee. We makes plans that sometimes fall apart and promises we sometimes break. And through it all we depend on love to carry us through. Is the assurance of this moment right now enough to hold you?
