With all the discouraging news, I plan to use this blog to pass along any genuinely encouraging words I find.

The following is by Laura Kelly Fanucci and it’s from

When this is over…

May we never again take for granted:

a handshake with a stranger, full shelves at the

store, conversations with neighbors, a crowded

theatre, Friday night out, the taste of communion,

a routine checkup, the school rush each morning,

coffee with friends, the stadium roaring, each

deep breath, a boring Tuesday, life itself. When

this ends, may we find that we have become more

like the people we want to be, we were called to

be, we hoped to be, and may we stay that way –

better for each other because of the worst.
