Omer Day 31: Compassion of Humility

Tiferet sh’b’Hod – Compassion of Humility
allowed my sister Rose to be caretaker
to give deep love to our very ill mom
without her asking for self-recognition
      She ignored her own pain
like Abraham welcoming his angel guests
caring for their comfort and not his
      She was her best self but did
not wear the hash tag # See me I’m the Best
She simply shared her open heart’s breath
      So blessed was she who could
clear then fill the space beyond her shadow
to bend the knee giving thanks—to be able
to give.
