I found out today that a friend and old co-worker just lost her father to Covid-19. It’s such shocking and sad news. My heart breaks for her. I can’t even imagine. In light of this news, and in honor of those of you who have also lost a loved one, I just wanted to leave some uplifting words this time. You are loved. You matter. My heart breaks with those of you who are suffering.
“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.”
“There is no perfection, only beautiful versions of brokenness.”
“I promise you that the same stuff galaxies are made of, you are. The same energy that swings planets around stars makes electrons dance in your heart. It is in you, outside you, you are it. It is beautiful. Trust in this. And you your life will be grand.”
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance”
