One thing about FUMC is that many of us have lived a long time. Maybe we can encourage others about loss and healing, since we have lived through it before. That said, uncertainty is still daunting even when we’ve seen a lot of things come and go, so it’s ok to be human and to have some anxiety. If it gets to be too much take some deep breaths and remember times when you made it through trials and troubles. (The lavender is for your deep breaths!)
