gracefully human

i am thinking of so many things these days.

how to be more grateful for the gifts in life,
how to be honest with the challenges,
how to rise to the opportunities of giving to one another,
how to align more deeply with dreams,
how to surrender to a greater power,
how to create less suffering,
how to accept suffering,
how to do my best each day,
how to feed potential,
how to let go,
how to be gracefully human.

THIS is my booby, my 99 yr old jewish grandmother, who inspires and humbles me every day.

THIS is charlotte, a girl with down syndrome who is waiting for her mama and NEEDS OUR HELP. (go here)

THIS is tim, a boy with down syndrome who runs his own business with the love of his family.

THIS is carly, a girl with autism who has found her voice.

THIS is stella, a girl with fiery red curls who is slowly dying.

THIS is livia, with so many people who have her back...
