I created it for me + you.
2013 marked the birth of many a dream for me.
For the first time in 5 years, I witnessed my 11 year old son and childhood cancer survivor, Brennan, enjoy a happy go lucky summer with his two brothers, Nat (13) and Christopher (10), filled with all of the fun and shenanigans promised by the carefree nature of the season; and in the fall, I witnessed Brennan return to school, alongside his brothers!
To be a witness to such a miracle defies description. Suffice it to say, that my feelings of gratitude were mixed with guilt and my feelings of joy were forever intertwined with extreme grief for the children we have lost in these last five years and each of their mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. All of whom have become part of our family.
Being the recipient of such a generous measure of joy and grief in this life changes a person’s perspective. You begin to see how often we only scratch the surface of the possibilities in life and love. And you begin to wonder what it is you are *supposed* to do with this remarkable experience.
The only thing that I could figure was that the experience, the stories and the lessons learned along the way were meant to be shared.
Thus, out of this wondering and figuring was born another dream, the creation of the Pilgrim Soul Class series, and the birth of a community of women walking side-by-side as we heal and grow and make our way home to the center of our own hearts. Together.
