One of the best things people have done for me since Jack died is to help me feel LESS ALONE. Life and grief and loss and pain can be so isolating, and even though I know God is always with me, I need to know his children are, too, rooting for our family, praying, noticing.
Points of connection, no matter how small, scatter flashes of light and stave off the darkness.
Today I had the chance to take part in a Love Flash Mob over at Momastery. I smiled to think that my small donation, only $25, would make a significant difference in women's lives. Their stories were compelling, and I could put my friends' faces on their faces, my daughter's name, or my sister's or name in the circumstances of need described there.
It's so easy to feel that our small part can't do any real good. For many years, that thought paralyzed me. Now, I realize love begets love, and there is beauty in even the smallest gestures.
The Love Flash Mob is still going on for just a few more hours and they need more donations to meet the goal! Will you consider making a small donation? In fact, NO donations over $25 are accepted, so that more people will be able to take part.
Love and Hugs.
