Thoughtful Thursday

This wekk there has been quite a lot on my mind. I am working on opening my heart to love in all its forms, and really appreciating all of the love in my life. I am not going to worry about losing it, because that is focusing in the wrong direction. I am focusing on loving. In that vein, I ask that you too live in the present and love those around you. Love them with all your heart.

The people I am thinking of today and asking for positive vibes, prayers, love and light:
Diane - Started chemo last week. She has two young children and her whole family needs strength.
Audrey (both) - love to these two terrific ladies in their battles with cancer.
S - Strength to her and her children while they navigate the rough waters of a relationship ending.
N - Strength to handle health considerations and family drama.

And especially, please send a positive thought right now to all those who are affected by the recent murders in AZ (and elsewhere). And really this is a thought for us all. That we are all able to move forward in a loving and respectful manner. That we do not allow the fear of "other" to rule our hearts and minds. That we can agree to disagree, and not feel like we are forced to resort in a violent manner.

My love to you all.

Thank you for posting this J9! People are being very quiet about the AZ tragedy, and I don't think that we should be. People need to speak out about it, and to express the profound sense of loss that we all feel as a result of this tragic, tragic event.
Sending love to you.
