I was a daughter for such a short tIme and this day has always been one of melancholy. It’s all of the other things too, but permit me a moment to pause, with some sadness, and honour my mothers. Long gone, always missed.

Today, let's choose to want what we already have. Smile at what is. Pause to notice the good and with everything in us, thank God. Even if there’s more healing needed... even if there’s more we’re praying God will do... today we can still be grateful, hopeful, and good.

The only way we’ll get through the summer is to accept the reality that some days will be about writing.Some days will be about family.Some days will be a bit of both.And some days we’ll feel like we got nothing done. ⁩ ⁦

Writing. “It’s the way you make sense of the world . . . It’s your spiritual practice of paying attention . . you know the sick and self-preoccupied pleasure you take out of the likes and the retweets and the shares . . you feel the pleasure of God when you spin words.”

These stories. Every year at this time. I wasn’t blessed with the opportunity to meet my birth mom but, despite the sting, I celebrate with those who are.

Chobani. My favourite. (See what I did there? ;) ) Interesting personal factoid: when we lived in WA, I automatically switched all of my spelling. Felt good to return to writing Canadian when we returned.

I can’t imagine doing it with social media. There’s something to be grateful for.

Finished reading ‘s Mystics and Misfits last night. So interesting. So challenging. An aperitif that whets my appetite for more. Go get it.

Love me some kale. Kale chips, kale salad, kale in soup.

TODAY on : James Finley is back to discuss the spirituality of silence. “The mystic isn’t someone who says ‘look at my experience,’ the mystic is someone who says ‘look at what love has done to me.'”

It is not virtuous to post on social media something about a person that you would not say to him or her in person in the same way. Let’s strive to be virtuous.
