On Blessing

Last night I went to a "going away" dinner for Sheila-the-Butterfly. It is a bittersweet move for Sheila.  She is leaving a group of close friends to go on a great adventure with God to give love to family during a time when her ability to cherish and nurture is deeply needed.

As we sat around the table, Sheila "blessed" each of us.  She told what was unique about each of us and what she 'saw' in us.  Also how we had individually touched her life. It was an outpouring of beauty celebrating who each other is.

We should definitely do more 'blessing.'
