I had an experience a few weeks ago in which I got a little note from a new ‘Friend’ to this page. Her Mom had died just a few days before, and she was looking through her Mom’s online accounts, social media etc. This is a very routine part of house keeping in the year 2018 after a death, as many of you know. But this time, there was a gift.
What is different in this story, is that this woman realized her Mom had been following me while she was sick, and then dying, and had found comfort in my words. I was able to recall her Mom, whom I have never met anywhere but here.
The daughter told me it gave her a great deal of comfort to know her Mom had been following me, and reading what was written here at the end of her life. Her Mom was one incredible human, so that I could offer her anything at all touches me deeply.
So here’s a story of connection that I share with you all today. There is good in this world, there is real connection to be made sometimes in unexpected spaces. I am hard pressed to know how to convey how much this all means to me. Let’s say that if I had to close this space down tomorrow for some reason, I could be at peace.
