A Friendship Blessing

Up early slurrrping Jasmine Pearl – ahhh, Tea Mind. Heart brimming with gratitude for growing up in a small eastern Washington town, and for still knowing and being known by many childhood friends. Belonging.

Dedicated to Jerry Moberg, who remembers my father and brought joy/pain into the present moment for me by simply saying so. Thank you, Jerry. Namaste’, Shell-
ps Now I can forgive you for dumping me in High School for Katie from Othello. Whew. What a relief. Forgiveness. ;-)

A Friendship Blessing

May you be blessed with good friends,
May you learn to be a good friend to yourself,
May you be able to journey to that place in your soul where
there is great love, warmth, feeling, and forgiveness.
May this change you.
May it transfigure that which is negative, distant or cold
in you.
May you be brought into the real passion, kinship and
affinity of belonging.
May you treasure your friends.
May you be good to them, and may you be there for them;
may they bring you all the blessings, challenges, truth
and light that you need for your journey.
May you never be isolated.
May you always be in the gentle nest of belonging with
your anam cara.

    Shell thanks for your kind message. I will admit that Katie was not my best move in High School. Good friendships are timeless and survive disappointment great or small. I am happy ours survived. I am deeply moved by your peaceful, loving and energetic spirit. Your spiritual path makes our world a safer place. Bless you

    Shelley- hi blessing yourself, I’m wondering if Jerry Moberg is relative of my oldest dear friend from being five years old…I’m hoping and believing in the web…
    Love, Linda

    He and his brothers and I grew up together in ML, where he still lives. We went to HS together in the 60’s. If that time frame and place seems right then it really is a small world!
