  1. Please know there are many other moms and dads and siblings and families walking the same path as you and holding you in their prayers and thoughts. You are not alone in this strange new world we now inhabit unwillingly yet unflinchingly.

  2. I am so honored to walk side by side with you.

    “You do not have to be good.
    You do not have to walk on your knees
    for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
    You only have to let the soft animal of your body
    love what it loves.
    Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
    Meanwhile the world goes on.
    Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
    are moving across the landscapes,
    over the prairies and the deep trees,
    the mountains and the rivers.
    Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
    are heading home again.
    Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
    the world offers itself to your imagination,
    calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
    over and over announcing your place
    in the family of things.”

      I hope you see your hummingbird. Plant some hummingbird plants. Also, add a water source and feeder. We live on a busy street but still get them. We saw a male hummingbird yesterday. I sent you Maggie’s illustration of a “hummie” the other day. God Bless.
