I always wondered when my heart got to rest. It never switches off, it doesn’t get a holiday, it doesn’t go into ‘sleep’ mode when I’m not busy. It just goes on beating, on and on, for the whole of my life.
And so does yours.
But then I read somewhere that a heart rests between beats. So every time my heart beats, it then takes a rest.
Same as yours.
Even as I write this, and as you read it, our hearts are beating, and then resting. That is so comforting. Quite wonderful, in fact.
