Tapestry of Life

A dear friend and colleague Janet suggested that I create a blog to share a journey - the evolving tapestry of life.  Over time my journey has been woven with light and dark threads of joy and sorrow mixed with laughter from deep within the soul.  My personal and professional experiences have helped me to see life through new lenses.  As I shared my thoughts with Janet about someday writing a book, she encouraged me to start out by blogging.  It is my hope that these words are a blessing to those who venture forth to read them.

I'm grateful to share a few pearls along the way - Grace one Day/Moment/Step at a time.  Perhaps there are others out there who are experiencing or have experienced a life changing event; an emotional tsunami, or an emotional rollercoaster.  As a professional medical social worker, I work with the full cycle of life.  In my personal and professional life I have walked the sacred journey of helping loved ones at the end of life.  I have also experienced a plethora of emotions, and have helped others to sift and sort through the maze of uncertainty.  I have come to appreciate that grieving hearts can take a path of their own...one size doesn't fit all.

This is my first attempt at blogging; it is my desire to share some of the stories that have helped to bring a sense of healing and peace in the midst of the storms of life. I have been profoundly touched by the courage, inspiration, strength, and tenacity of those that have crossed my path - personally and professionally.
