When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.
I have been so blessed to have Alicia Brown as one of my physical therapists.Her compassion, deep listening, knowledge and skills are aiding my body to heal. Three weeks ago her family’s life turned upside down when her husband Chris was diagnosed with leukemia. They found out yesterday that he will need a bone marrow transplant later this summer and will be out of work for a very long time after that. This loving family of four (they have two sweet little girls) could really use our financial support at this time. When I asked Alicia if I could add a link to their Go Fund Me page on my blog, being a person of humility, she replied, “No, you don’t need to do that.” I responded, “I don’t need to, but I want to. There are few things I can do in the world to assist others, because of my own illness. Please let me do this small thing and ask others to join in, give us a chance to do something good. This is why we are here on earth, to help one another.” She cried in appreciation and agreed to allow me to share their story and post this. That said, I hope like me you will open your hearts and pockets, click the link below, read more about her family and offer a donation.

My husband and I saw Greg Greenway perform this song live in a similar venue the year the album Something Worth Doing was released with friends. I can't even believe how many years ago that was now. I remember he told us his wife had just had a baby. That evening we had no idea what was up ahead, the depth, the enormity, the sheer number of challenges and losses all of us would face in the days, weeks and years to come. We just loved being together, singing along, receiving the gift of music, appreciating friendship, immersed in those precious hours of joy and laughter. Over these years babies were born and loved ones have died and through it all kindness has flowed. This week, looking at new buds here and there, flowers finally pushing their way through the soil this song has been my constant companion.
Thank you everyone for you kind words and prayers. We are in a holding pattern it will be a few more weeks before all the tests are complete for our daughter. She's living life with adolescent passion. It is pretty had to slow this girl down.
Perhaps because of the difficulties, rather than in spite of them we have learned to be grateful for something, small or big, every little day. Perspective reminds us that no matter what happens or doesn't happen, in Greg Greenway's words "everything else [your reactivity or response to life's inevitable challenges] is just up to you."
