Today my thoughts rest in love. Love of my family and of God. Love for my friends and of moments of peace and rest. I HOPE for the ability to love greatly throughout my life. My friend Gwen has a bumper sticker that reads, Life is the classroom and love is the lesson. What a heartfelt and beautiful sentiment. I would HOPE that my children will have this kind of drive to really live life and love boldly. The lessons will come and won’t always be easy to get through, Lord knows I still struggle. I think the more we are awake and alive we discover that a much bigger plan is in store for each of us. Today I also learned that no matter how much I would like to review and approve this plan, it will remain out of my hands. My job is to trust and to HOPE. This I will love doing.
