In this work I am in a fortunate position to be touched by many families. There is one family in particular who not only touched me, my practice, but my family as well. In sadness grew the gift of love and friendship. All because of a sweet little boy who never took a breath.
Many are hesitant to speak about death because it makes them feel uncomfortable. When a family is grieving, the best gift anyone can give is to allow for a safe space to let that grief flow. To listen, deeply. Not trying to fix what is perceived to be broken, but simply to listen, making sure that emotional as well as physical needs are being met.
Today we remember Caleb Isaac with love. And his beautiful, loving family who continue to live fiercely, fully, openly…teaching us all what it means to be present every day.
Happy Birthday Caleb!
With Love and Gratitude,
