Healing Roots

Healing Roots
When I met and married my husband, I had the immense fortune of marrying not just my perfect person, the other half of my heart, but also of marrying into his family. Glenn’s two sisters, their families, and his parents are a wonderful addition to my life.

Early Sunday morning, Huxley and I dropped Glenn off at the airport in Asheville. He flew to Sarasota, Florida, where his parents live, after several late night calls let us know that his father’s health had declined, necessitating hospitalization. He’s there now, and will be returning home tomorrow afternoon.

Glenn made this healing roots mandala image this morning, and shared it on his Instagram feed. He captioned the image “Drawing on my roots…My father is in the ICU, and I hope for people to share this healing mandala, or sit with it for a little while and direct their attention on healing themselves, family, friends, or the natural environment that gives us life.”

My father and mother-in-law are exceptionally generous people. They tirelessly offer up their time, energy, and resources day after day. I’m joining Glenn in sending thoughts of healing to his father, to him, to myself, to my grandmother (who has been in the hospital herself since Friday with pneumonia), to my Uncle Pete (who just discovered kidney cancer), and to the greater environment we all collectively share. Peace, love, and healthful thoughts to you and yours, from me and mine.
