A Journal of the Heart...
This is a time of Yesterday I presented a Sacred Embers to someone. But it was so very different than any other time.
Our world is dealing with the Corona Virus (Covid19). Businesses are closed. People are called to remain in their homes unless it is necessary to come out for something.
Normally when I meet with someone regarding their Sacred Embers hugs are exchanged. When I present someone with their Sacred Embers there are more hugs exchanged. This time, we met on my porch, away from eachother. She loved her Sacred Embers, she told me and I could see it all over her face. It was to honor her mother. She is a very young woman, younger than my daughter. It killed me to not have the ability to give her a hug……hugs are part of the healing process. When she left, I selfishly felt sad that I could not give her a hug.
Yesterday I found out that a very dear friend had died. He had lived through so much in his lifetime. He was a military veteran. And because of his service he suffered a lot of things due to Agent Orange. He was a family man. His wife was his caregiver until the end. I cannot imagine the emptiness she is feeling. I will call her later today to check on her. But because of this worldwide virus, her world will be even smaller and more empty. Her grief will play out differently than if this virus was not attacking us right now.
This is a time of Rolling with Changes. We must remain positive and strong. We have strength in our cores.
