  2. Dave,
    Today I was at my usual Wednesday yoga class, at the end of each class the instructor reads from the dailyOM. This was today's reading:

    Circling the Wagons
    Surrounding With Protective Light

    Sometimes we need to circle the wagons in our own life which means asking for help and support.

    There are times when we may know of someone who is in great need and wants help, but we may feel at a loss about how best to help them. It is at such times that we can ask for help in surrounding them with support and protection, just like the pioneers once circled their wagons in the middle of unknown territory. Whether this means turning to an already established community such as a service organization or gathering support from diverse sources, a group of people can be brought together to help an individual or an entire community. It doesn’t always take money to help someone either--cooking, cleaning, driving, fund raising, or offering emotional support are all valuable and have the added benefit of the closeness of the human touch. In any case, the universe sends angels in the form of willing friends or strangers to gather their individual lights to surround those in need with the warmth of compassion.

    Some people may have difficulty accepting or even recognizing aid when it appears in unexpected guises from unlikely sources. All we can do is to follow our inner guidance, give when we are moved to do so and shine our light to the best of our ability. As we join our energy with those in the circle, we become part of something that is larger and more powerful than the individuals within it.

    When we act as part of a community of service like this, we are reminded that we are not only assisting an individual or select group in the moment, but we are serving the greater good. We are creating a better world, and can rest assured that help will be there for us as well. As we offer our own light to the collective glow to help someone through a time of darkness, all of our lights become brighter. We can live every day from this place of light, knowing the freedom from fear and worry that allows us to receive and share the protective and supportive light of life.

    As she was reading I was thinking of Kim. I looked up to the only small window in the studio and along came a hummingbird...I started to cry and thought more and more of Kim. You are in our prayers daily.
    Love to you and the kids

  3. What a beautiful way to keep Kim alive in our hearts! She would have been the first person to help a cause like this. You will be able to provide comfort to families in their time of need...Of course Kim is proud of you!!
