Did I remember the dead today?

On Wednesdays I share journal pages created with John O’Donohue’s A Mirror of Questions from To Bless the Space Between Us.

On my heart as I share this question are friends and family and folks seeing this, all in different stages of remembering.  It is not shared lightly.

  1. Sharing an incredible quote that crossed my path this morning and reminded me immediately of this question…

    “As we grow older we have more and more people to remember, people who have died before us. It is very important to remember those who have loved us and those we have loved. Remembering them means letting their spirits inspire us in our daily lives. They can become part of our spiritual communities and gently help us as we make decisions on our journeys. Parents, spouses, children, and friends can become true spiritual companions after they have died. Sometimes they can become even more intimate to us after death than when they were with us in life. Remembering the dead is choosing their ongoing companionship.” —Henri J. M. Nouwen, Bread for the Journey

    These beautiful words have just put a whole new light on this question for me.
