You've heard the old saying, "Laughter is the best medicine," right? Well this is SO TRUE to my experience.
August 30 was a very sad day in the Goulding house. My mom's beloved boyfriend of 5 years was laid to rest. I traveled to Houston for the ceremony and burial. Our family, friends, and in-laws all gathered together to say goodbye and support my mom in this, her third, partner loss. Our hearts were tight and jaws were tense, to say the least.
Between the funeral and the burial there was some time to pass, which we did at a local restaurant. This is when I learned something about my brother that sent me into a laughing fit like I have never had before!
While his wife was scrolling the photos in his phone looking for the one she wanted to share with us, she casually said, "You have a lot of pictures of your alarm in here."

Have I mentioned before that I love teaching about the chakras? I've taught my chakra series for about ten years now, and it never disappoints. This year is no exception. Last Thursday in Hatha was Anahata day, or 4th chakra, located at the heart center. This is where we house grief. And there is PLENTY of that to go around these days. After class, several of us on Zoom stayed back and shared some tender moments. We realized how close to the surface our sadness is sometimes.
