I was doing my thing at the gym this morning, getting in my groove on the elliptical machine while my ipod shuffled through songs. I usually listen to a playlist instead of shuffle so I haven't heard a lot of songs on my ipod lately. The song "Love Can Build a Bridge" by The Judds came on and I almost skipped it to go to a more upbeat song. Instead the words grabbed a hold of me before I could get to the next button. This song has a great message about love and it's powers. I listened intently, applying that message to my personal journey. I had to listen to it again and hoped that I wouldn't make a fool out of myself by starting to cry openly at the gym.
Reagan can not talk to me and has very limited communication skills at this point. Yet I feel immensely connected to her and in tune to her spirit. I feel that the love we share and understanding of that unconditional love has built a bridge over her inability to use words. I talk to her all the time, and no she doesn't respond but the love that shines through her eyes back at me talks to me. I am not sure if I did a good job relaying what I am feeling and how I interpreted the song. But the bottom line is that I felt the message loud and clear this morning, love is all that matters. Here is link to their live performance if you've never heard the song: The Judds beautiful performance.
