"Begats and the Begottens" (for Florence Sumner)



"Volunteers and donors are transforming the
hospital experience. Lives are saved, new techniques
are implemented, grieving families are comforted."

I love to read the begats of Biblical stories, mythological tales, and historical genealogies. They are like equations to me: lifelines of understanding that lead to logical conclusions. Complex, but not complicated.
Direct access to answers. To solutions.

Read one fascinating book here.

But life is not that simple, is it?
We have Pacts and Pax and PACs and Packs of personal and cultural History that we carry with us as if we are all clones of the great Atlas -
the awesome weight of the whole world upon our shoulders.

Powerful burdens that drag us down in our life journeys.

Florence Sumner ( wonderful friend of my Mother, Jane Schulz) believed that it was much simpler than that. Florence lived by the Law of Love - actualizing the idea that one persons attentive detailing of love in action could, and would, make a
positive difference.
Florence took the abstract idea of empathetic response and made it concrete.
She gathered up the lost that gathered upon her doorstep and brought them into
Her Home.

Today. This week.
Contact
the ones you love and tell them,
"I love you"
and
"I wish you success, in what ever form that may take".
Call in love. Call for Florence. Call because we have so very little time in this
plane of existence.
