During these times I always think of these words from Glennon Doyle Melton.
Life really is brutiful.
Sometimes I need other people's words for when I don't have my own. Like this reminder...
Or this... so good...
Or gosh, this one. Are you doing LOVE?
These from Glennon are so so good too...
Sometimes all you can do is pray, thanking God for your health and safety and asking Him for peace and healing for those who need it.
Life is precious, y'all.
Lucy Kalanithi (also a doctor like her husband), the wife of Paul who wrote When Breath Becomes Air, said that, as doctors, “We had seen that bad things can happen. … In a way, we skipped the stage of asking ‘Why me?’ and we sort of had more of this feeling of ‘Oh my gosh, it’s our turn now.’”
At some point, it will be our turn to handle tough stuff. Whether you're in this season of life right now or not it's a fact that life is not all rainbows and unicorns and bon-bons in Paris.
Savor what you have today. Hug your kids, kiss your spouse, tell your parents you love them.
Life is short and life is long, but all that is guaranteed is right now.
