Maternal Mental Health Month Day 7

“We don’t heal in isolation but in community.”  ~S. Kelley Harrell

Support can come from near or far, face-to-face or through a phone, keyboard or letter.  Support can be provided with a smile, nod or kind words.  Support can be a hug.  Support can be just being there.  Support can be uplifting and empowering.

“How quickly your world fell to pieces.

Never needed a friend now you do.

Love is all that I’ve ever known from you,

And love is the least I can do.  

I’m gonna hold on as tight as I can,

’til these dark days let go of you.  

I’m right here and I will shelter you through.  

 

Oh your dark days they are numbered.

I know it don’t feel that way, but it’s true.

Just press on past the cold and the storm,

’til you find your clear skies of blue.

You’re gonna make your way right out of here,

One step at a time, go ahead, I got you.

I’m right here and I will shelter you through.  

 

Love is all that I’ve ever known from you.

And love is the least I can do. 

I’m right here and I will shelter you through.”

“Shelter You Through” ~ Andrew Duhon
