Breathe

29 Apr

TDM gave me a necklace today that says:  “לנשום” which translates from Hebrew to English as “breathe”.  A good reminder.  And very much apprecited.

So, I “talked” tonight, or gave it an attempt at least.  Actually talking was helpful I think.  It made things more real.  By writing I could and can hide behind the paper (or screen).  Talking put it out there.  It was hard, but I am glad I said something to her.

Driving home I listened to the Josh Nelson project.  It was one that TDM recommended as I was searching for some music to help the peaceful feeling.  I didn’t find a song that I didn’t like on the album, and I got through almost the whole album on the way home.

I think one of my favorites was L’dor Vador, the lyrics are as follows:

We are gifts and we are blessings, we are history in song We are hope and we are healing, we are learning to be strong We are words and we are stories, we are pictures of the past We are carriers of wisdom, not the first and not the last

L’dor vador nagid godlecha

(From generation to generation, we will tell of Your greatness) L’dor vador… we protect this chain From generation to generation L’dor vador, these lips will praise Your name

Looking back on the journey that we carry in our heart From the shadow of the mountain to the waters that would part We are blessed and we are holy, we are children of Your way And the words that bring us meaning, we will have the strength to say

L’dor vador…
