All we can do is offer kindness, caring, compassion; how these land we may never know. What we can know is no kindness is ever wasted.
Just today I let my mother know she is not alone in aging. She'll turn 80 in December and has been fretting ablit that number. Today I shared a blog post by an 83 year old woman who writes oprnly about being 83 and continuing to do what makes her happy including traveling solo. I shared this so my mom could hear this woman also has arthritis, also has a thyroid issue. My mom visibly relaxed. She felt less alone in her feelings.
What helps me stop thinking of myself are my daily readings from service space, nice news, meditation and focusing on being of service.♡
