In the final Sitting post, my sweet aunt commented that I have good roots because I came from good roots. Well, I have evidence of the good roots I came from–specifically, my mom’s roots.

 

When Mom was starting chemo, she asked my father-in-law to make a meditation tape for her of her favorite scriptures. Here’s an excerpt from that email:

 

There are many scriptures that I love. You can pick and choose from this list, or record as many of them as you have the time and energy to record.

 

All of Ps. 23, 27, 30, 34, 91, 100, 103, 118, and 121.
