September 8--Still Ticking

You know, a heart can be broken--but it keeps on beating, just the same. 
--Fannie Flagg

    I think that very few folks who have reached adulthood have escaped some sort of heartbreak. Death of a loved one, relationships ending, dreams gone awry--grief can easily overtake us. 
    Have you ever really paid attention to how your heart feels? We take our hearts and their steadfast beating for granted. Before I had hip replacement surgery, I had two EKG tests that showed up as "abnormal." Neither doctor could tell me what was abnormal about my heart. The cardiologist then did a heart sonogram and pronounced me "normal" enough for surgery. Obviously the surgery didn't do in my heart. 
    The heart has much wisdom to offer if only we would listen.
