times of scarcity

Times of scarcity need to be met with generosity,
times of fear with comfort,
times of uncertainty with presence.
When we care for those around us,
we create a field of love.

Caregiving

Caregiving often calls us to lean into love we didn’t know possible.

I send this out tonight in gratitude for the caregivers among us, some visible to the eye and some who remain unseen and unknown. Through their hands our Love is extended in times when we cannot be present.

So many people have experienced this surrender of care, as we live in the time of invisible viruses. Throughout this country and around the world people are depending on the compassion and acute attention of caregivers. We remain separated yet those who attend to our loved ones are the bridge between us, the connection that binds us together.

May they know our respect and gratitude in this most unusual time — and always. May they be protected, while enveloped in the mist of this sickness. May we continue to find ways to honor their work in our thoughts and our deeds.

Hope

What gives me hope is that life unfailingly responds to the advances of love.
