Kabbalistic Sephirat HaOmer - day 2

As a friend was preparing hours ago to go into major surgery scheduled for this morning, she expressed on FB the feeling of being "alone". I know what that feels like in times of great difficulty even with friends visible.  With empathy and Chesed, I wrote to all the people in our spiritual community. There are many in our shul's Bikkur Cholim / visiting the sick group that this friend has led for years. I asked that our 'Comfort Group' contact Linda NOW before the surgery to send their love, hugs, and prayers for healing. Of course many have, and more have now.  One friend has referred to this gathering as a Circle of Angels. I like this. The Boundary of Gevurah we've created, is a circle to embrace our friend in the middle, along with Shechina.
