This weekend has been overwhelmingly rich in love - so full of love. Ruth and Chris really centered us as a family/community with Liam's naming ceremony. Ruth has the text in her blog (Thank you Ru) http://sproutnhope.blogspot.com/.

I am delighted by our community - the way people come through for each other. Kneeling in front of Ruth and blessing Liam Chaim to sleep was precious for me - a moment I will always remember, as was the moment of wrapping Chris and Liam Chaim in Chris' prayer shawl. I think at this point I am out of words to try to wrap the emotion more strongly. I grew up without people I had genetic ties to, and without a strong faith tradition or community. I grew up with values and sense of family mission and purpose, but not with a group who could sit in a circle and pass a baby around for blessing. I am just so improessed that both of my daughters have found/created such groups for their children. AND BOTH OF MY DAUGHTERS HAVE CHILDREN!!!!!! Life is good. TOmorrow I might even write something political. Or something. We'll see.

What a special loving weekend and loving community you have described. What lucky grandchildren you have to be able to experience such richness of tradition.

You are all truly blessed at this full time of your life as a family and community. May the warmth remain to warm you all in colder times as well. Love to you.
