Spending an engaging evening over wine and appies with one of my daughters here last night. Along with two acquaintances adjusting to a very recent loss. This mother and daughter now a family of two. The four of us taking turns filling each other in. Sharing anecdotes about the ups and downs of life. Some much appreciated laughter too. Touching upon the gifts available to us after experiencing a profound loss. Greater compassion for others. Increased confidence and freedom to make fitting choices for oneself. Deeper appreciation for the right here, right now. A heartfelt visit leaving me feeling connected, uplifted, and grateful.
