Kindheartedness to me is when someone puts their
own emotions and well being aside to help someone else.
It takes a very strong person to do so.I myself recently
had someone do so for me and I abused it.They put their
family and emotional well being aside and opened their
heart to a stranger and it backfired on them.My heart
hurts for not excepting the help that person tried to give
me and I am sorry.If I knew what to do to fix it I would
no matter what it would take.I hope I didn't take any of
the kindheartedness out of this special person.
     It was a lesson well learned.

    It's a step in the right direction, dear one. There is always the necessary next step in our journey to wholeness. Raise your gaze to the horizon; see the truth of yourself, that you are a precious and beloved child of the Most Holy One God of All That Is. And take the next step in that direction, giving praise and thanks for all that you are. You can do this. You are loved and supported every step of the way.

    Don't worry, Colleeen. I'm sure she understands but probably feels the need to protect herself now. She'll appreciate this poem. Hope you are doing well now. Love, Carolyn
