Over the past few weeks, and most intensely, the last few days, I've been reminded to find joy, goodness, gladness, peace, and satisfaction in the day to day. I have been more attune to the resiliency of the human spirit, the blessing of a helping hand, and the comfort in the goodness that surrounds us.
A babe resting on your shoulder, a five year old's prayer to "help us be true," the spring breeze, the smile of another.
Sometimes I find it so strange that I get can caught up in minor skim-the-surface-type things that paralyze me from doing better in major life-changing things. Vulnerability verses service. That type of thing.
I'm going to let those surface things float away in the breeze and move forward.
