Finally this week, do you find it hard to ask and receive help? Sherri has some advice for you:
Receiving is grace and art in a world of transactions and austerity. It’s a dance partner in an Argentine tango in a sphere of military marches. It’s a gift to the giver who feels helpless to change a situation. It is solidarity with those who live on the edge and can do little to change their outcomes. Don’t settle for a transaction when the offer of love is extended
Until next week,
May you give and receive much grace and many blessings in the days ahead
Yours with much love always
Hello dear Marie – thank you for this week’s intriguing list, as always – and for sharing my post about what happens when an ex-spouse dies. This all started with a discussion about whether it’s “appropriate” to mention a longterm partner in an obituary. What I’ve learned through this process of my own ex-husband’s sudden death is that it’s ALWAYS appropriate to offer condolences to anyone who has lost a family member, or somebody who used to be a family member. Kindness is always appropriate…
Take care, stay safe…♥
