The last couple of weeks at the store there was a fundraiser for children's mental health with funds going to four local children's foundations including McMaster. It is needed. I heard that with the pandemic, the mental health wards are overflowing, eating disorders are up 90%, and digestive issues are greater in all ages of children.
But it is people of all ages. I am thinking of a person I know who has suffered big losses in the past year including a close friend and the last remaining family member. And this person is struggling and I think 'gee what can I do?'. I am not good at following through on thoughts.
There are so many good people out there. So much love and so much pain and suffering. Can't we just heal the world? But somehow that is not what life is about. We appreciate the highs by weathering the lows. And we learn and we grow. And we send love and light and prayers. And we receive the same.
Fill up with universal love. We all need hugs.
