Just a quick thought--

Sorry that I haven't been posting of late.  My nephew is in the hospital and I'm feeling the need to help family lately.  But as I do, I notice how much Yoga has taught me and kept me strong through it all. 
Seeing a once active four year old in the hospital slowed down by brain surgery is enough to put someone on the floor in fetal position for a very long time.  My heart is full and sometimes overflows with tears but my practice has deepened as of late.  I do my meditation and asana devoted to Ethan.  Whenever there is a lull in my day I pray for him and say my mantra. 

I feel lucky to have these practices in my life.  It was also such a gift that my sister who has been living at the hospital with him for three weeks now, asked me to lead a Yoga class for her.  My family is usually happy that I do Yoga but do not think it is for them.  It was so beautiful being able to help my sister breathe and find some relief from the daily stresses of nurses, medicines, new diagnoses, etc.

Ethan is getting a little better every day thanks to the many, many prayers.  We still do not know how many of his abilities he will regain but he smiles, and sings softly and can play catch.  These are all amazing gifts and I'm so thrilled to be able to be a part of his life. 

If you are interested there is a Benefit for Ethan concert on Dec. 10th.  Info below. 
Thank you for being a part of my life as well.

Om Shanti,
Yoga Girl
