Holding the Helm

This weekend I tended; the laundry, mopping, dishes, cooking, grocery shopping, weeding.  I listened and visited.  I know this plain, holding of space is soul work.  It is a group effort, a family project. We are all having tough moments. We try, forgive, appologize, and make the effort again. In this humble togetherness, we hold each other.  In grief, in laugher, in anger, in fatigue, and in fear, we witness. 

In gratitude, I remain- fully alive.


  1. Glad to see your pixels on my screen. Hoping you are well, and that these tough moments are temporary. Wishing you plenty of love and light.

  2. Hi Maggie! The family is creating a new normal. New expectations, schedules and habits. Chemo is rough. Watching the strain it puts on both my parents is difficult. I'm just glad I'm here to help and spend time with them.
