discovering grace

Discovering grace…..a new painting. If you are stumbling, fumbling your way through – may grace be what you discover, even when it seems impossible.

For those of you who have been reading this blog for awhile, you may remember when we pulled together as a community to support Megan, a young woman battling her health insurance company to help cover her cancer treatment in 2009. It was remarkable – your support. With permission from one of Megan’s dear friends (Clare, who is also one of my dearest friends), I wanted to let you know that Megan passed away earlier this month. The following note is from Clare.

Beautiful Megan

Dear Kelly, I wanted to write to you to let you know that I received word today that my friend, Megan, passed away today. You and your community were so kind, generous, gracious and encouraging to her that I thought you would want to know. She fought the cancer as hard as she could and always with a smile on her face and the most positive attitude you could imagine. She died quietly and peacefully with her long-time partner, Jon and her best friend, Sarah Jane, by her side. I will always remember her for her bright smile, vivacious laugh and her beautiful head of blond curls. Please thank your community for their tremendous generosity, both financially and spiritually. I know she felt it all. Love, Clare. 

Megan’s friends and family held a memorial service that Clare says “matched her spirit of fun and enjoyment of life.” Thank you so much for your support to her during a time in her life when kindness meant everything. I am proud to have been a part of something that helped lift and inspire her during her brave fight. I can’t thank you enough….and am sending eons of comfort to her friends and family who must miss her dearly. What a remarkable soul she was…

Hello, tenderness.

  For as long as I've been making art and telling my stories online (circa 2006!), it's been important to me to tell them honestly. I have a strong value on being brave in times of celebration (not playing small, dimming my/your light) as well as being brave in...
