Healing Her Homefire

I am picking up the torch again. Truth be told, I am not sure I have the same courage as I did a year ago, regardless it is time. Sometimes the ideas, the hopes, the plans, the vision we hold in our heart need to be set aside for a season, sometimes we need to press pause to catch our breath again (or in my case, catch the hope again) or sometimes we just need to let go indefinitely.

Healing Her Homefire is a vision, a hope & a plan that had legs. We spent a year fundraising with amazing success because of community support. We had drive to support one iskwew who was struggling with chronic homelessness and we started this journey with her December 2019. The relationship and the bond was honest.

Our butterfly-our gal had passed away in the summer.

I haven't been able to talk about it much. Even as I write, the tears & the heartache overwhelm me.

There isn't a day I don't think of her.

I honestly wasn't sure what would become of Healing Her Homefire.

Creator and I had many conversations. It was mostly me crying out in anger, in guilt and in despair.

The honour of my life was to be invited to speak at her funeral.

In that moment, I had so much clarity of who she was.

One of the strongest women I know...

So I pick up this torch again.

For 2021, Healing Her Homefire will focus on advocacy, education, community & outreach.

We will heal and we will build.
