Is this the hottest, the wettest, the saddest year on record? Statisticians are evaluating if this truly is the worst year yet. We don’t need stats to name our own worst times, do we?
We felt and can feel again our own times of the darkest night, whether this year or ten years ago.
They were times that clutched our soul and weighted our shoulders until we felt bent and shaken with loss.
Yet often they were the times that taught us about resilience and healing. They were the times when others shared their wisdom and gave us glimpses of a new Land of After.
The last two years I have shared some of those bits of wisdom that others have taught me in my dark times.
These five posts reached out to me again this week after hearing of the struggles some of you are facing.
It seemed like it was a good time to re-share them with you
Some are quotes, some have short videos. Others are filled with photos of beauty. I hope they help.
