Last week, I posted Fighting Parkinson’s, and control, acceptance, and surrender, part 2 in which I explained about my father’s sudden passing. The responses I received were filled with compassion. I was overwhelmed…and I am grateful for all of you.
Last week’s post had 34 comments filled with compassion, well-wishes, sympathy, empathy, prayers and love. In addition to those 34 comments, I received heart-felt compassion on Skype and FaceTime, on the phone and though text messages, in instant messages and through email. I could hear your voices and read your words and feel your compassion come through loud and clear.
You put your personal Parkinson’s suffering aside and reached out to me, another human being who was suffering, and you opened your hearts and offered me your compassion and your love. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I am grateful!
So, today’s lesson is simple: Find the compassion in your hearts that you offered to me. Find the love in your hearts that you offered to me. AND: Offer them to yourselves. You have Parkinson’s and you are suffering. Please offer yourselves the same compassion and love you offered me. It will be very healing, and I will be very grateful to know that each of you has been able to give yourself a hug just like you gave to me.
Here’s a hug from me to get you started.
You can do this.
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
