My husband melted my heart the day he asked me, "Can I participate in your wonder?" In whose wonder do you get to participate today?

Pain is a difficult companion. There's no getting around that. But, if pain is to be a companion, searching and discovering your own best ways to travel with that pain will lead you to the joy that you long to have. They are your paths, your ways and while my experience and the experiences of others may inspire you, ultimately it will be the choices you discover and make for yourself that lead you to certain joy in the midst of your challenges.

Life is defined more by its contrasts than its samenesses; Life is defined more by its risks than the many securities.

I appreciate the boldness of gratitude in the quiet, unspoken depths and its ability to buoy another by being articulated.

The jump is so frightening between where I am and where I want to be. Because of all I may become, I will close my eyes and leap.

Gardening is all about optimism. I put a seed in the ground. I consistently tend it, confident I will see the results, in time, of the nurture I have provided.

I offer gentle understanding to myself. I position myself in love, not fear. I look behind me with forgiveness. I look forward with festive anticipation. I embrace this holy moment and assert, "Now. This moment is the moment to love, the moment to serve, the moment to seize the legacy instead of the small. Now. Now I will live large, love boldly, reach to the edges of my unfurled heart and fully enrolled hope."

The well-timed question is more impacting than an answer.

Some days are simply meant for playing.

Sometimes the things you really want sneak in the back door. Notice.
