I'm somehow finding myself indirectly involved in somewhat of an awkward situation this summer. My life isn't necessarily directly affected by the conflict or the eventual outcome, but emotionally I can feel a pull through even my remote involvement. Mostly because it involves people I have come to care about greatly. Who each hold a special place in my heart and who have become part of our extended family. And a project I've grown to love and whose mission (at least as it was originally conceived) I support whole heatedly.

It's heart breaking for me really. How I would love to offer up advice and words that could maybe help resolve the issues at hand. However, it's not my place to do so in this particular situation. As a nurturer through and through, I want nothing more than to be able to make sure everyone comes through to the other side safe, with relationships and hearts intact. I want to bake a big batch of chocolate chip cookies, set everyone down around the kitchen table with a glass of milk and get everyone to make peace so they can go back out and get on with playin'.

Unfortunately life isn't quite that simple. And so I will try my best to sit here on the side lines and offer up what support I can.

It's not an easy place for me to be...
