Thoughts for a friend taking a respite in the midst of grief but why not for everybody all the time?

Be well.
Be safe.
Be good to yourself.
Cry if you must.
Laugh as much as you can.
Have some fun.
Get some rest.
Know that you are loved.
Know that you are not alone.
And if all else fails, call me if you need bail money.

About pathawkins

Do you need to know who I am to appreciate this blog? Perhaps. Or perhaps not. Knowing who I am may encourage you to read my posts, or it may encourage you not to bother - but that will say more about you than it says about me! So, just in case it matters, I can tell you that I am a progressive, white, middle-class, middle-aged, pro-choice, married, lesbian, American, Episcopalian woman who has studied psychology, theology and liturgy. I work in a church as well as being a reverse mortgage counselor. I am well educated and fairly well-spoken. But, I'm neither pretentious enough nor arrogant enough to think that my words will change attitudes, much less lives. On the other hand, if my words or images can open a window to another way of looking at something or if they can provide comfort or joy, I know I will be blessed in return.
