Our theme for February is Share Your Heart. Deep within our hearts is a light that cannot be taken away no matter how dark things become. From a one standpoint, we can say this light comes from the stardust that is in all things. From a spiritual standpoint, we can say it comes from the Source of Life. In any case, I like to think of it as a light within our hearts. In the dark times of grief, we need to uncover that light. One way to do so is to Share Your Heart.
