  •  Peace and blessings to you both. (6+ / 0-)

    It is such good news that Leaves is coming home.  Sending healing thoughts and prayers.  I, too, am familiar with Julian of Norwich and her words.  I find the words you quoted from her to be so calming and soothing when I'm feeling tense and overwhelmed.  They form a kind of meditation/chant for me.  I wanted to mention for Leaves a book by an Orthodox monk, Brother Victor-Antoine d'Avila-Latourette, titled Blessings of the Daily .  It is a wonderful resource of daily readings for each day of the year.  (He also has written cookbooks----one that is all salads and another that is all soup recipes.)  

    All my best wishes for both of you in the coming weeks and months.  These situations involve profound stress for both patient and care-giver.  Following my spouse's emergency quintuple bypass surgery 15 years ago, I remember the Stress Reduction class we took at the hospital where he had his surgery and where I learned that just breathing and paying attention to our breathing is essential in reducing stress. So, take time to breathe deeply  And all will be well.  All will be very well.

    "A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more." - from the prophet Jeremiah
