Once In A Blue Moon: A Celebration Of The Life Of Maureen Esposito
By Dr. Nancy Gahles

DR. Nancy gahles Once in a Blue Moon your Life is touched by a gentle Soul and you are forever changed.

Maureen Esposito was such a Soul. Maureen always had a smile on her face and always had only kind words to say. In spite of her many sufferings, should you run into Maureen on the street, her first words would be “How are the kids?” I was always in awe of her. Such a gentle, humble Soul. Truly, she loved the children. Before I had children of my own, I remember sitting on the deck of my house watching Maureen hover over her children as they played in the street. And hover she did. Maureen’s children meant the world to her. I used to wonder if I would be so self-sacrificing when I had children of my own. That was the way I always felt in the presence of Maureen. Her simple humility was always awesome to me.

Once in a Blue Moon you meet a person whose sufferings dwarf your own and whose Light shines through it all so strongly as to give you pause to think. How does she do it? One day I got my answer. Maureen came to see me about a health related issue. In my business, on the top of the patient form, the first line is for “Chief Complaint.” Complain is what most of us do when we are in pain. Maureen said something that struck me deeply. She said” Nancy, I don’t want to change anything. I just want the strength to deal with it.” I believe that is how all the Masters lived Life.

Once in a Blue Moon you meet a person of such fine and delicate fiber of Being that you are truly humbled in their presence. Maureen Esposito always had that effect on me. The witnessing of a human life of simple beauty, breathing the essence of the God- Life; the ECK, the Divine Spirit which supports and sustains all Life in all planes. Maureen deeply understood the principles of spiritual responsibility. She didn’t ask for her lessons to be taken away from her. All she was asking for was strength, a physical commodity she had precious little of. We all need strength and courage to take the journey from Self to God realization. I, among so printing started in printing complete many others, was privileged to be a co- worker on her journey and I truly hope that I helped to ease her burden just a bit.

On Friday, July 30, there was a Blue Moon in the Heavens. A second full moon in one month. A rare occurrence. My friend and I were on the beach that night, howling at the moon as she put it. We were singing and blessing all the women, the Goddesses, and the important roles they play in family life. The next morning I heard that Maureen had passed that night. I thought, “Maureen, you go, girl!” The Blue Moon, the archetype of the feminine face of God, the Celestial Mother principle! Maureen chose this time to make her transition from this Life to the next. Again, I stood in awe of this simple yet profound Life.

Once in a Blue Moon you meet a woman like Maureen Esposito and we are all uplifted!

May the Blessing of her Life live on in her family and in the lives of all whom she touched with such gentle grace and dignity.

May The Blessings Be!
