sanctuary.

sometimes

i just feel quite empty.
emptiness is my least favorite kind of feeling.
its like missing your best friend
or getting soggy moccasins from the rain
when your hair looks stringy
and your make up is smeared.
oh an you forgot to wear mascara.
and a new zit on your chin.
its like a tight throat
that really just wants you to cry.

so you go to the temple.
and its clean and happy in there.
and the best part?
your throat can let you cry
because no one thinks you're dumb for crying.
and its a sanctuary.
in fact, its home.

what a blessing.
just go. you'll be glad you did. :)

love, laura

  1. Dear Laura,

    I am so glad I saw you there.
    I was feeling exactly the same, and the temple was the only place i could imagine to be.
    I'm glad I saw you.

    love,
    Gretchen
