Notes from Jan

Whispering Hope

October 1, 2019

The wind stirs the grasses, clinging to crevices in the rocks outside my Perch.

There’s a saying in the Talmud, “Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers, ‘grow.’ ”

Today would’ve been Jud’s 79th birthday.

Call me nuts, but I still sense Jud whispering hope in my old ears and heart.

His encouragement’s not limited to “grow,” thankfully.

Got new hearing aides last week.

Don’t want to miss any whispers.
