Prompt for Dec. 19: Healing. What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011? (author: Leoni Allan)
Healed to me implies that I'm somehow transformed into a flawless human. I know this is not the intent of the prompt. Leoni  likely intends to ask what experience provided healing forces this year? That's better, no?

I'd have to say, finding the crow's feather underneath my couch on a cold November morning and connecting with powers larger than myself provided a healing balm to my grieving heart. Understanding that things unexplainable provide our link to the beyond, to the comfort that comes from precious ones passed on, to the healing powers of love.

I am at peace. I miss her. I love her always. I feel her presence often. My heart is comforted and healing.

How would I like to be healed in 2011?

Let's say, I'd love to know more of my Mother's presence in my life, feel her love and take strength and wisdom from what she gives.


  1. If this was the only prompt you answered in this series, it would have been worth it. Your words and the photo are testimony to the relationship you and your mother shared and the ways you honor her memory. Sending you a hug, Kate.

  2. I love this photo of you two!
