Today's reading connects us all

Compassion is the heart's response to sorrow.
We share in the beauty of life and in the ocean of tears.
The sorrow of life is part of each of our hearts and part of what
connects us with one another. It brings with it tenderness, mercy,
and an all-embracing kindness that can touch every being.

Todays reading puts words perfectly in order to describe how I have felt in the last few days.  The outpouring of love and kindness from everywhere has been amazing. Thanks to all who have put forth expressions of love and kindness for our families.  I am so grateful for the connection, the tenderness and mercy, and so humbled by the all-embracing kindness. Namaste.

Long before we’re ready, we sadly say goodbye. But there are those in a far more beautiful place who are saying “welcome home”.
