Dear Ana, I am so touched by the love I see in the photo of your family with your dad. I sit beside you now for a moment in your grief. Wishing you comfort.
Happy new year to you and yours, dear Drew.
Manda! A big hug to beautiful YOU, and to the spirit of dear Jack bear, and to the new light in your life that is Stella Luna. Sent with love from grateful sea.
Dear Cathy, welcome, friend. Such a powerful blessing you bring. May it be so.
Dear Ose, blessings of the new year to you.
Dear Ann, thank you for being you and for being here. Blessings to you as well. I lit my candle early this morning and it burned much longer than I expected, though it was just a stub. I was able to sit outside all bundled up on the back porch and the flame danced in the wind. Sending love from grateful sea.
Oh, dear Ose, such a timeless prayer is never late. It is perfect here and now. And my heart joins yours in the circle of it. May all hearts know universal love. Amen.
Thank you, dear Anna, thank you. Sweet joy to you.
Dear Ose, thank you. Wishing you joy this day.
Dear Mary, thank you from my deepest heart. I am very depressed and have been for quite some time. Words just don’t come, but though I have hardly written in, I still light my candle on Tuesday mornings and hold everyone here (new friends and old) in the light. Blessings of this silent and holy night to you.
Thank you, dear friend, thank you. Your words are deep comfort to me. Please know that we are with you today and in the days to come, and holding your mother in healing light. Sending love from grateful sea.
Thank you, dear friend, thank you. Om shanti.
Hello Drew, did the image upload as you wished? What I see is vivid green — leaping! A leaf, like green flame. And I feel happiness because of this. Thank you truly from my green heart space. Sincerely, grateful sea.
Yes, dear Ose, I too offer continuing prayers for your mother. And for you. Dear friend, I am truly touched that you were thinking of me at this time. I tried to reply earlier but have been unable to find words. The truth is that I have been carrying a great weight of sadness, much of which centers around my father’s steep decline over the last two months. He is in the later stages of Alzheimer’s dementia and also has cancer of the urinary bladder. My mother is exhausted but ...
Yes, dear Ose, I too offer continuing prayers for your mother. And for you. Dear friend, I am truly touched that you were thinking of me at this time. I tried to reply earlier but have been unable to find words. The truth is that I have been carrying a great weight of sadness, much of which centers around my father’s steep decline over the last two months. He is in the later stages of Alzheimer’s dementia and also has cancer of the urinary bladder. My mother is exhausted but very resistant to accepting any help with caregiving. As I lie down to sleep now, I take the warmth of your greeting dear Ose, I hold your mother and you and your family in prayer (and also my own), and I also take Wendell Berry’s encouragement which is offered as word for the day, “Be joyful, even though you have considered all the facts.” That is my hope. And may that beautiful white horse come to all in dreamtime who need that hope.
Dear Mary, I hope you can see this image and feel it as a warm embrace. In the light, I hold you and all here in the gratefulness community and beyond.
Oh my friend, I understand. As I am having trouble finding words, for now with my heart’s energy, I send you a big hug with love from grateful sea.
