Planes, helicopters and walls of mud – all falling away from life. The last two weeks have been difficult. Saturday a hillside became a mudslide and washed away homes, and with them, security. Three people are confirmed dead. An infant clings to life at Harborview.

We work so diligently to create secure and certain lives – and so much lies beyond our human control. Seems a good time to tend to simple acts of kindness for whomever we encounter.  Life is harder than it looks.
