Yes. So many of us fear that we will be exposed as "unworthy." You are so right that it through relationships that we find our salvation - our "treasure." Thank you for your treasure, Liz.

Illness & poverty may confine us. But, Fear is the great jailer. A mean boss walks in. Our spirit trembles. A piece of our soul breaks off every time we give into bullying. None of us can live free unless we find the bravery to live love, not fear. Continue reading
What splendid and elegant drawings, Liz. I love both. And your words are so helpful in offering support for our souls. Thank you again for reminding us of your grief experience and how you worked to aid others: "Helping them, helped me" - clear proof that the soul sings every time the music of helping others is played.

Superb point, Terry. Caregivers would do well to note your suggestion. Compliments on your wisdom in discovering what you needed. We can't take care of others unless we first take care of ourselves.

"Do all the good you can each day. The future will unfold.” This is the definition of "success" - not winning or losing or gaining or falling behind but simply doing kindness and living love with each breath. And who can argue with the wisdom in this line: "All right effort bears fruit, whether we see the results or not.” Most poignant of all, "Among mature people war would not be a problem — it would be impossible."
