The owl who listened to me: Beautiful Re-Blog

I’m going t try and put this on my Relief-Refreshing page, since it feels so rejuvenating.

NOT MY SECRET...overcoming the shame of sexual abuse

After a very hard night last night I kept telling myself, “DON’T CRY.” I just didn’t want to go there. I didn’t want to feel the despondency and the defeat that tears often bring me.

But last night I was given a gift of listening tears. The owl came to visit and sat outside my window. It was actually the baby that was crying for food, but I went out to listen to her and I cried at the sound because I did not feel alone.

Many will tell you, where there is God in your life you will never feel alone. Sometimes, I still feel alone. But I do also believe that God will send you what you may need to help you feel NOT alone. He sent the owl.

This morning when I woke up I wrote a blog about my brother and how deeply he hurt me.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.

  1. This is a beautiful piece. It reminded me of the lesson I learned when I had a similar experience that inspired my piece called “Soul Spring Magic.” Thanks for sharing it!
