My friend is having surgery tomorrow. Last night my husband and I stopped by to see her and drop off some DVDs for her to watch during her recovery.
I also gave her a CD with the Medicine Buddha mantra on it and a candle I made. I bought a blue candle at the grocery store, the type in a clear glass cylinder. Then I created a template in Word that would cover it. I inserted pictures and text, then print, glue, and voila:
My friend really liked it, her Catholic upbringing notwithstanding. I don’t know whether it will provide any metaphysical healing. But I’m pretty sure it will bring her comfort, knowing it was made for her with love.
