Short & sweet today. This phrase came to me as I reflected back on my own experiences, & as you’ve shared yours w me.
What we lose, who we lose, how we struggle, what obstacles we encounter – these things ALL make an “average, normal, mundane” day seem that much more like a miracle – bc of how much more we can APPRECIATE.
This time of yr we hear the line – “What I want for presents can no longer be wrapped in packages.” Same thing for what we gain from the challenges of the past year.
Know that no matter how much struggle this past year may have brought, the gift in those struggles is that you’ll be able to appreciate so much more of the “small things” you do have & will experience. Cherish these small things for the miracles that perspective has shown us they are.
