A few months ago we had rented a cabin.
One evening in the cabin, I was reading an email from a friend of mine - a mum of a severely handicapped child who wrote that she gets vibes from their social worker that imply that her child is a burden to the world- taking up resources and giving nothing in return ( a complete lie because this is a very loving wonderful and in fact very brave child)
Worthiness is so difficult a thing to measure
We use the term so callously !
What is s/he worth ? we say when we want to know how much money someone makes.
The email had made me think
And R had been super clingy all day. Though we had gone to have family time - I really needed a little time away from family
So I went for a walk and in the woods. It was sunset and very quiet and outside another cabin - I found a bunch of bikers ( tattos leather jackets and all ). I could feel their eyes boring into my back as I walked and I envisioned the next day's news "Weekend holiday turns deadly for tourist".
As I returned back up ( keeping my fingers on my mobile in case I needed to call DH to hear my last words ) one of them approached me.
And said shyly "miss we was wondering if you would take a picture of us so we could all be in it "
As they all stood together solemnly raising their beers for a picture.
I realised that they were all VERY old and VERY sweet
How close and full of love for each other they seemed as they stood close ( but not touching as is the rule among Western men.Never touch one of your own gender if you are a man )
Anyway walking back I came upon this sign
This love filled sign for a deaf dog along with a group of old friends who wanted to be photographed together said clearly
Surely every life capable of love is very worthy indeed
