My Sad News


I'm completely heartbroken. My mother has unexpectedly passed away. 

I'm lost for words. 

------- 
I never expected as I prepared for this week, that I would be faced with the death of my mother. Or that I would be packing to board a long flight home one final time. Or that my next blog post would be my own healing hearts request. How quickly things can change.

If you'd like to send me a healing heart, I have no preferences, only gratitude.

    Esther, I lost my mother also almost 10 years ago. The lessons learned from her through your whole life will hold you tender and the world will soon regain its equilibrium for you. Be patient with yourself and soon you will be able to smile when you think of her. God Bless you at this difficult time.
