Our friends remind us who we are and the blessings contained in the love from friendship are countless…..

There are so many things I have learnt lately that this post could have become a right mish mash of thoughts, fortunately common sense prevailed and I picked the one thing that has been my constant; my friends.

Sometimes we need those we love and trust to state the obvious. I have been house sitting for a lovely family this week and shared a cup of tea with them when they returned from holiday yesterday. We sat chatting and listening to their children playing the piano and it was uplifting. I was struggling though, and the man of the house gently suggested that I may have soaked up some of other folks drama and upset from the last few months.

I returned to my generous friends (who have shared their home since I hit a period of sudden change) and the lady of the house and I sat in the garden last night and ate dinner together. Afterwards she played the piano and I sat listening to the music, watching the evening sun play out over the fields. I ‘broke ranks’ and managed to say how I have been struggling this week. She is a wonderful instinctive healer and within minutes she devised a healing session around me that lifted the rubbish I have been carrying right off my weary soul.

I slept like a log and find myself today reminded that no matter what happens, we are still who we are. I am still me and filled with hope. Not defined by my current circumstances, instead surrounded by special friends, love and support.

God bless my friends for all their acts of kindness and love, as they have formed a sturdy lifeboat in this sea of change.

    Jane, this time of adjustment for you is also a time of joy for those who wish to lift you up (by caring for you). I’m the absolute worst. I hate to be a bother to anyone. I insist on doing everything for myself and never asking for help. And yet, I am doing much better with that, thanks to an ‘aahaa’ moment I had a few years back when a friend asked if I got joy from doing for others (which she knows I do). In response, she said, ‘then why would you ever deny that same joy to someone else’? Sometimes the greatest gift we can give another is to let them love us. You are loved. ~ Always, Bobbie

    It is so hard when we have been providers for so many years to accept the gift of friendship. I often hear parents saying “I don’t want to be a burden to my children in my old age” _ but did they ever ask them, and would it be a burden, or a gift to them? We should all be able to live like the Peace Pilgrim, to travel where we will find food where it is given, and know that the universe will care for us – no matter what ! Jane – you are truly blessed !

      Oh Peter, you are so right. There are so many blessings in this upheaval. Karen and I have had proper time together, and we have always been on the same wavelength spiritually, so the ideas and projects that are bubbling up between us are exciting. I have a new home emerging, one that is beyond anything I imagined. So many blessings and peace for me to gather myself together again. Everything is exactly as it is meant and love has been the key. Much love to you J xx 😀
