Greetings from the
I Watch With Expectancy for Today’s
As always I am reminded that the higher
spiritual laws operate to put us in touch with people who can
help us or bring to us others who need our help. I really do
not have to look far to notice where to take my next step on
the everlasting journey of personal growth and expansion.
Neither do I have to worry that I need to do
"something" to make the world a better place. My
latest spiritual assignment found me, again.
A dear friend died several years ago and
left me in charge of a trust for her grown children. The
financial details are not why I am involved, it is clear to me
now. At this time her son needs my emotional support and help.
A relationship breakup has thrown him into a crisis. As I
write this column, I am choosing to call him daily to listen,
offer insights, and help him problem-solve what he needs to do
to move to a better place.
I invite you to pay attention to the small
assignments Life presents you, today.

I used to greet each day with an almost
naive anticipation of what wonderful things it might bring. I
experienced a lot of joy and laughter and of course, periods
of sadness and suffering in my life, but overall, I always
believed that I could handle everything that came my way, good
That belief was shattered on the day that
changed my life. The most intense suffering I ever experienced
in my life started on September 3, 1999, when my husband,
Stan, and I were on our way from London, Ontario, Canada to
Detroit for a business meeting.
The sun was coming up and everything seemed
fine. It was a beautiful morning. We were traveling on Highway
401 when suddenly, unexpectedly, we saw this wall of fog in
front of us. As we entered it, Stan slammed on the breaks
almost immediately and we found ourselves sideways on the
Question: How can I best help my
daughter (and her husband) at this point in time? As
you'd understand I'm keen to impart some of my spiritual
wisdom to the situation but I don't know if that's
appropriate at this stage when she is so stressed and
physically unwell. I don't know if I would be just making the
situation worse when I share with her my soul thoughts about
what is going on and what there is to learn. It's difficult
because I see her trying to address the issues on a
superficial/physical plane level of awareness when I know that
I know her depression is soul based.
