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 ProjectForgive.org:
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.
