If I could offer a thousand claps for this, I would do so in a heartbeat, Rebecca.
This is one of the most beautifully moving stories I've ever read. Even by the very high standards you set in your pieces, this one is a cut above.
There's so much feeling and understanding in it. So much truth, and your transcendent wisdom shines through as always. I'm just bowled over, my friend, and I appreciate you and the work you do more than I can say.
Thanks so much for the gift of this lovely story. Thanks so much for the gift that is your life. Namaste.
