I once heard and I oh so believe — angels come to us in feathers, numbers and coins.
And today, during a very spiritual yoga practice with Wade, a feather dropped right on my mat during our opening chant. I looked up. What did it fall from? Where did it come from? I immediate felt a sense of warmth, a sense of ease, deep peace.
This past week, I had a heavy heart as I grieved the loss of a friend, a student, my hairdresser, a KIND human. Taken too soon, CJ Dougherty is one person who will forever live in my heart. She was quiet, but when she was passionate about something — you knew. She was a warrior on the mat and an peace maker off the mat. She wore many hats in the abilities and gifts she embodied, touching many lives. Mine included.
I am not sharing this to receive condolences, but am choosing to share this sign from up above to honor the life of CJ.
Every day we live in choice. Every day is a gift. And as DMB says “life is short, but sweet for certain, so celebrate we will!” Maybe not in that order, but celebrating CJ. Thank you for this sign, Angel CJ.
