Bit and pieces. Life comes together like that, in seemingly insignificant small events, daily happenings, the odd coincidence, a chance encounter and ¡Voila! it all becomes a day, a week, a month, a year, a lifetime. Added together those tiny bits create a life, a lifework.
Bits and pieces. A piece of verbiage, simple words that encourage; a touch, a pat on the shoulder to lighten a heart; a look, a smile that brightens the spirit. Help comes in small packages, given casually, carelessly even, but essential in the fabric of human existence. Bits and pieces of self given daily to one another unthinkingly, link us together, part of the eternal brotherhood.
Bits and pieces. Vials of blood, my blood are tested for compatibility. Electronic scanners check my system for properly functioning organs and systems. Then soon half of my liver will given to a longtime friend becomes a whole vital organ for him, maybe as soon as Christmas. Bits and pieces make a whole, a more complete whole, parts of the larger Kingdom.
