Today a life is celebrated- 9 years of life!! Today is Clare's birthday. To me life is figure eights- the symbol of infinity- we all do live on by our actions, our commitments, we come and go closer and further away from one another and things, we loop back and forth- some times repeating, sometimes crossing new ground but it is always motion. Life is change and movement- and savoring where we are in the pattern is good. Today is a good day- there is saddnes and joy, laughter and pain but comfort is there for us.
I offer many prayers today- prayers of thanksgiving for so many people and things that provide and lead me to that comfort. Prayers of comfort for those that mourn the loss of a hero.
