Water lapped against the edges of the pool as I floated on my back, trying to find some peace. There was nowhere on earth to look, so I stared up at the heavens. My husband and I had been married for 36 years. When he asked for a divorce, it felt like I was all alone in the world.
God, I prayed, I don’t want to have to live without love.
My eye lingered on one cloud in particular. It seemed to be forming into a shape. I watched as it became more and more defined, with a distinct point at the bottom. A heart.
All at once I saw another heart-shaped cloud, this one already formed. It was wispier, but just as beautiful as the first. Then another heart-shaped cloud, like the filigree on a fine gold pendant, floated by. And what was that right overhead? It was hard to believe what I was seeing. A fourth heart-shaped cloud!
Eventually my clouds drifted out of sight. I got out of the pool and toweled off. I didn’t have to live without love. Not if the angels fashioned hearts in the heavens just for me.
