"Time Piece (Peace)"

I lost my watch last April. It wasn't an expensive watch. But it was a nice watch. A nice silver one. And ever since, I have been wearing my Mom's gold watch that I bought for her 85th birthday in 2006.

Anyway, a few days ago, I was prepping some winter clothing for the cold days ahead. Inside the pocket of my full-length black coat was, you guessed favorite silver watch.

I immediately replaced my Mom's gold watch with the silver time piece that I had just uncovered.

As I did so, I heard my Mom's voice in my head say to me, "Herbie J - this is your time, now. "

A Helpful and Healing Love

"What better way is there to honor our loved ones (who have passed)
than to utilize the very qualities that the relationship represented -
by sharing that same love in ways that help and heal others?"
