Anniversary Shoutout

18 years! Babies, moves, jobs, rough patches, high points, more rough years, easy times, questioning, loss, joy, grief, love. Everything at different times and all together. At the same time. Seperately and always together. You can love and be sad, grieve and be joyful, sail through life and wonder why. The human heart is capable of so much. 

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;

where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,

grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

to be understood, as to understand;

to be loved, as to love;

for it is in giving that we receive,

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.

st. francis of assisi – 13th century

Remind me to always be mindful of my beautiful, complicated life. Happy anniversary, my love.
