It’s been quite a week! I am so grateful to everybody who has prayed, been skillful, cheered from the sidelines, offered wise and compassionate empathy (and distractions!) over the last few days.
Things seem on an more even keel now, and I am particularly grateful to those who have given us space and time to be quiet. (I’ve even managed to do some packing!)
When I went to drive to the hospital early one morning, (fearing what I might find) this leaf was on the car.
It’s beauty, fragility, survival and wonder have stayed in my mind’s eye.
To love and be loved is to be fragile and to be strong.
It makes me glad.
