Braving The Wilderness 

Chapter 3 - Blog 1

“Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion.”

Brene’s definition of Spirituality on page 45 puts words to something I have not understood.

A wonderful experience I have had since starting Weighting Comforts is getting to know people from different cultures. Anwar is our lead sewer and trainer. She is Muslim and I am Christian. Before I knew Anwar I could not have imagined having a spiritual connection with someone who is not a Christian. But several times in this journey Anwar has had a “knowing” about something I have been thinking about.

In the first year of us working together, she said, “You know Miss Donna, you could rent a place and we could all sew there.” We were both tired of meeting in the parking lot to exchange blanket orders. We talked about it and I said, “Pray Anwar”. She responded, “I pray Miss Donna.”

Most recently, I told Anwar that I am closing my therapy practice to work fulltime at Weighting Comforts. She exclaimed, “I feel that! You know how I feel things?” I smiled and I told her, ‘Yes, I know how you feel things.” She went on to explain how she had been wondering the day before why I didn’t close my therapy practice since we are so big now.

Anwar and I are connected. I don’t quite understand it, but I love it. And I am thankful that I don’t need the answers.

What do you think about Brene’s definition of Spirituality?

When is a time you unexpectedly have experienced feeling connected to someone?

How do you experience love and compassion?

 

Be Comforted,

Quilted Cotton 10 lb

Fall in between two different weight limits for two blankets? We suggest going with the smaller of the two blanket weights.

Still not sure which size to buy? Most of our customers buy one of the 15-pound blankets.
