People are hurting…

Always, I know. I am often gifted with moments of grief for these people – strangers, friends, acquaintances, family. Recent times have had many of these moments. Families suffering with all-consuming addictions, devastating suicides, unbelievable financial strain, sudden losses (and “anniversaries”) of beloved people and animals, crushing abuse of all kinds…so much more. Overwhelming is an understatement. Please remember to hug your loved ones, go the extra mile for a stranger, give grace to those who fail you…a small gesture could make all of the difference. Holidays aren’t always happy for everyone. Thanks for listening to my heart.
