Just a hello and loving wish for all of my dear friends here for a joyous holiday season. I read all of your entries and think of you all often. Blessings. 🎄♥️
I am struggling these days to find some peace, maybe some joy, some reason for being. Your words have given me a perspective to try for today, if only for a few moments. Perhaps the seed that will begin to grow. Thank you.
A beautiful reflection on loss. I have to think that there may just be some small amount of good that comes from such guttural pain to go on.
What s beautiful practice. With every ounce of my being I wish I could accomplish this practice, but my anxious brain gives me no relief. Is there a small step to begin this journey that a monkey brain might have some hope?
In spite of all my life challenges, I can still love.
I thank you for these words of wisdom on this stress filled morning for me. I can’t explain how this precious place of gratefulness has enriched my life. The readings , the practices( which I fail horribly but try) and the wonderful people in the lounge have truly saved me from deep despair. My gratefulness goes out to you and all who have created and maintained this island of hope.
Deciding to attend a funeral service of the mother of a high school friend I have not seen for 50 years was such a gift. It was not by accident that I attended, as I reconnected with many people lost from my past. I was indeed grateful and the warm welcomes were a loving comfort to a long hurting soul.
What a blessing and feeling of true gratefulness I feel for those who offer such a place of healing. Each person that has spoken to me has had a part in lifting me to stand and supporting with their love to walk through my grief. I will forever give thanks for all of you.
If God sends you down a stony path,
may he give you strong shoes.
You all have been my Shoes.
Thank you for this dear Elaine. I need that vision of rock right now to stabilize my grief.
Wise advise. I often react immediately and regret my actions. Pigeonhole it!
Isn’t it amazing the gifts we receive from tragedy when our heart is open to receive. Sending your mother and you much light, love and prayer.
Thank you R.P. A wonderful reminder.
