Temple Renovation (30 May 2020)
The Temple has undergone renovations. Please see here for more details:
She's well into her 70s and had a fall on Wednesday night and broke her left upper arm in two places...really bad breaks. She needs surgery next week and will be remaining in hospital until (and after) then, and they say that at her age, she may not recover the full use of her arm, and even if she does, it will take a long time and a lot of support...
She lives on her own and has no living relatives...I became acutely aware of this when I visited her today and realised that I'm probably the closest thing to family that she has.
Living alone also of course means that when she returns home without the use of her arm she will find it really hard to manage...
If you need help connecting with this person that you don't know...she's the one who taught me to sing. If you've heard me singing, you've indirectly experienced her...
If anyone could pray for her, or send calming/healing thoughts her way it would be very much appreciated, as I feel very alone in shouldering this burden.
All my dearest wishes and regards go out to both of you.
I hope she heals quickly!

Lol, I think you meant "you are not alone" ....gotta love when typos occur,
I have no godparents, nor any living grandparents (that I know of) so I can't imagine what you're going through, but I will keep you both in my thoughts.
I agree with akkarin's idea, it will most certainly cheer her up to hear her legacy continue through you (I'm using legacy in reference to her teachings)
