Very recently, an esteemed friend and colleague died suddenly of natural causes. Not suicide. She was loved by many, and possibly at the peak of her life, but without warning, she was gone. We have lost her unique humor and animation, her dedication to helping others.

During the month of May we celebrate Mother’s Day which is a special day to remember our Mothers both those who are still with us and for those who are in the hereafter. In the vast, vast, vast instances this child is born as a result of human love. Human love is one of the great mysteries in creation. Two people meet at a certain point in their lives and fall in love and a child becomes the result of this love. Why these two people? Why now? There can be other Whys in this equation that really defy an explanation. All of this is part of the mystery of human love.

“We humans are social beings. We come into the world as the result of others’ actions. We survive here in dependence on others. Whether we like it or not, there is hardly a moment of our lives when we do not benefit from others’ activities. For this reason it is hardly surprising that most of our happiness arises in the context of our relationships with others.” –Dalai Lama –
