  • grace, a post by Jeanine. Jeanine included these words by Rumi in this post: "When you are so weak, give up to grace. / The ocean takes care of each wave / till it gets to shore."
  • living in these words, the words of Anne Lamott, "All you could do finally was to just show it turns out, showing up was the most important thing. Your there-ness, your stepping into their line of vision, was almost life-giving...So you showed up when it felt like the whole world was falling apart, and your being there said that just for that moment, this one tiny piece of the world was OK, was better. You didn't do anything; you were just there."
