My fickle heart~

Even Miranda writes to the Tin Man, "If you ever felt one breaking, you'd never want a heart." My heart betrays me. So so much. I think I am fine, then just talking to someone else about their precious grandbaby(ies) brings me to tears. It's not because I am not happy for them, but it's because I AM happy for them! That they are getting to experience the greatest love I've ever known. 

People think the heart is just a muscle, but it's oh so much more. Even though it's such a powerful muscle, to be able to pump blood for our whole body to keep everything going, it's much much more. You often hear people say "Follow your heart", or "Listen to your heart" or "the heart wants what it wants." A former practicing psychologist Deborah Rozman wrote a very interesting article, saying "Yes, the human heart, in addition to its other functions, actually possesses a heart-brain composed of about 40,000 neurons that can sense, feel, learn and remember. The heart brain sends messages to the head brain about how the body feels and more. "  I doesn't surprise me. So often my heart overrules my head. 

And David Stiles quotes scripture (You can click on the word scripture to go to the link, for those of us who believe) that reveal long before anyone really understood how important the heart was to us physically, it was crucial to our emotionally. 

So yes, our hearts truly have a mind of their own. They are able to store millions of memories, whether it be a tangible memory, a scent, a picture, a feeling, a song etc. But I disagree with Miranda, even though I've felt mine break, and I still do often, I would never trade my heart for NOT having one. Even the painful memories are treasured ones, and I think my heart will remember long after my brain does, how much I've loved, been loved and hope to love.

So take good care of your heart. Be careful who you trust with it, because IT is your friend and confidante.

I love ya'll~
