New updates on Missing Benjamin page. Today is four years since he disappeared. Until I can get a handle on this despair, I won’t be publishing new Gems. Any good vibes you feel like sending my way would be appreciated.
Buttons for Benjamin will continue until Ben comes home, but I won’t be keeping records. This is a promise to do at least one daily act of kindness and, where appropriate, leave a Button (I had dozens made) to get the word out about my missing son. If you would like some buttons, let me know.
I’m taking a break for a bit and will be back with Gems featuring some new photos from Cord X. and a poem from Johnny O. the week of November 18th. We’ll restart the videos and newsletters every week after that too.
Until then, may all your journeys be green and golden.
Today is my missing adult son Ben‘s 35th birthday. As mentioned in 5.20, you’re invited to join me in kicking off a year of SAoKs (Small Acts of Kindness) called Buttons for Benjamin. The challenge starts today and runs for three weeks. The link is here. It’s hosted on KindSpring.org. If you join, you receive one email a day and zero spam.
Every Tuesday beginning February 28th, I’ll post a special Gem called “Full of Grace” with a photo and a blurb about each of the SAoks the week before. If the small act is a face-to-face meeting with someone new, I’ll hand out a button to get the word out about Ben.
Even if you don’t join, please send good thoughts and picture him home again, safe at last.
♡Thank you. ♡
