Unless our paid jobs are directly related to the medical field or police services, we’re unlikely to find ourselves actually and literally saving someone’s life. Unlikely, but not unheard of.
But we know that small bits add together and make a larger whole.
Today we are talking about making a difference in our lives and that of those around us. We begin with self-care. Obviously.
When we are well, we can help others. When we take the time to nurture ourselves and start from a solid healthy place, we are better able to lend that aid, tend to the comfort and care of those who are important to us.
It, like so many of our messages, sounds so simple. But, also like so many of them, it’s not easy. (Is it EVER?!)
Our culture does not value the immeasurably fantastic (and necessary) act of “resting” as it should. Meditation and prayer needs to be on the VERY top of our list. Good nutrition and plenty of sleep, those are the basics.
And, when I was directed to return to our regular rotation around the card altar, we were given another item-of-importance from this same category. It’s as valuable as the Elements.

This isn’t one of my favorite illustrations, but I just now noticed that the sitting-up person on the right has wings. Which also makes this a reminder, yet another part of being able to help, is asking for assistance from our Team. And then, accepting it.

is something that I’ve come across three times in the past week. Until then, I’d never heard it at all.
