Boundaries In LOVINGKINDNESS - day 2 GEVURAH sh b’CHESED

PSALMS OF MY SOUL
ספירת העומר

GEVURAH sh b'CHESED
Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer - day 2


In Chesed/Lovingkindness I must have Gevurah/boundaries around my desire to be a friend, to help a friend with cancer and discharged from the hospital only hours before Pesach. I want to be present for my friend and yet I must respect her boundaries while she’s in pain during surgical recovery. 
I send healing prayers to my friend.

I realize that last week I also, with kid gloves and activating Gevurah sh b’Chesed, very carefully shared my opinions with people about Bikkur Cholim and the importance to not postpone a visit to their loved one. I’m glad I did speak up with loving kindness and mindfull of  boundaries, because one week later, the day before Pesach, their loved one, z”l, died. I did not want the family to suffer any later thoughts of regret about lack of visit, so I spoke up. Maybe not my business, but I cared both for the loved one and the family. They said they would visit. I share my condolences. I loved my cousin. He was so caring, kind, sweet, funny and filled with faith. In sympathy and tears.
